Starting around Thanksgiving…. and going through the end of December…. I am going to include/encourage everyone to share their outdoor AND indoor Christmas decorations for Outdoor Wednesdays.

Greenery in the form of trees, wreaths and garland are from outside…… and they are inside for the holidays… yes, I am stretching the definition of Outdoor Wednesday…. but I can!!!

Other Outdoor photos are welcome (as usual).


Beginning this week, and probably through December I will be sharing my Christmas decorations. Outdoor photos for Outdoor Wednesday are still okay too!

Christmas décor is everywhere. From the time you enter the front door …


We have miniature dachshunds. Of course they have their own tree! Their tree can be found in the half bathroom.

Dachshund ornaments and photos of all the dachshunds we have had are found on this tree.

And they had to have garland and a wreath decorated as well!

  23. Hi, What beautiful decorations! I especially love the nutcrackers. :o)

    I'm so excited to find your blog again. I had linked up once a long time ago. Our trees turned glorious colors which is so unusual for Houston. I had to share the uncharacteristic beauty of the trees on our seven acres.

    Thanks so much for hosting this lovely linky party!
