christmas fayetteville style: porch and mantle

nothing i love more
than live greenery draped around 
a grand porch

love the presence it makes

throw in a leyland cyrpress

or two...

 mantle is simple this year

 picked up this greenery 
on one of my daily morning walks

gotta love 

 throw in my fave color: lime.
a sparkly coral sprig, pine cones
and white lites.

tell me how you do christmas?
would love to hear...


  1. I love your Christmas decor, it has a lovely personal feel and the black with the pop of green is just perfect :)

  2. Wendy, you home looks lovely. I love your mantel and your front porch! I tried to email you back, but you have "no reply blogger" on, so no one ca email you a follow up reply! You can take it off by going to your settings and putting in an email and allowing email replies. Regarding my weight loss...I'm on a low carb diet and limit my carbs to 100 per day. If you write down everything you eat for 3 weeks, it will be easy to keep track of how many carbs you eat. I also have a whey protein shake (Jay Robb brand) for breakfast, then a protein snack about an hour later. That's it...I've lost the weight without exercising. Maintenance diet is 150 carbs a day, which his about what I'm doing now. Hope that helps.

  3. Gorgeous! You are so talented. ;-)

    I'm in the middle of decorating and it's just a big mess right now.


  4. I love that you threw in the shade of green that's your signature color. You can't go wrong with pine-especially when you can pick it up right in your 'hood.

  5. Your mantel is outstanding.Looks so beautiful. Have a great weekend.

  6. Gorgeous! Thank you SO much for your lovely note today..xoxo S

  7. How lovely! Wonderful black and whites! Enjoy the gorgeous week ahead, Kellie xx
