Hey there, today I wanted to show you the outside of my house and how it's decorated for Christmas.
I live in San Diego.
It's going to be 70 degrees today so bringing the "winter" to the outside of the house can be a challenge.
I know, poor me, I have to deal with beautiful warm winter weather.
My husband and I recently ripped out the ten year old Blue Point Junipers on either side of our front door.
The one on the right side of the door decided to twist crooked and go sun searching.
The lack of symmetry bugged me.
As much as we tried to stake it and straighten out, it just wasn't working.
It happens with landscaping, things periodically need to be ripped out.
This year I moved two of my urns and pedestals to either side of the front door.
I added faux greenery, sticks, and Christmas balls to the urns.
I like it.
I can change out the urns with each season.
I also painted my windows and the entry mirror with a DIY stencil for the third year in a row.
This year I used a simple deer head design.
It's easy to scrub off after Christmas.
To see how I did my windows last here click here.
I painted the front windows too.
I added some faux wreaths to the windows and attached them with suction cups.
It may be warm here but we can pretend it's snowing.
Thanks for checking out.
