Here at StoneGable, we have a big porch wrapping it’s sturdy arms around our home. Last week I shared my front porch and today I’m sharing a special spot on my back porch for winter sitting. I love to swing or to rock on my back porch even in the winter. So I decked out back porch rocking chairs with a little Christmas spirit. Welcome to Christmas on the back porch.
Today I’m participating in THE CHRISTMAS PORCH TOUR. Thank you, Amy, from Atta Girl Says for putting this together every year and including me! Make sure to stop by the end of this post to see some amazing porches, patios, gazebos, and more!
Before I show you my back porch, here’s my front porch…
I went very natural with my outdoor decor this year!
You can see more of my front porch and how to make the big planter filled with greens HERE.
Just like the front porch, the back porch is simple and natural this year. I love live greens outdoors because they will stay fresh through the Christmas season.
Because I don’t have a live tree indoors this year I thought the porch was a great place for one. Just a few simple strings of light on the tree is all it needs to look festive!
It gets cold here. And I love to bundle up and get under some of the blankets to have my morning coffee and greet the day! It’s so quiet, especially when it snows and that is my very favorite time to enjoy my back porch.
A flannel or fuzzy throw are great barriers to the cold and it feels cozy too! The blue plaid throw is double sided and so warm. I made it and you can see it HERE.
My red wool shawl is draped over the back of the rocker. It is super warm and I love wearing it all winter long.
Flannel hand warms get lots of use on the back porch! I made these and you can too. See the tutorial HERE. They would make fabulous stocking stuffers!
These beautiful Wise Men are journeying around our yard in search of the Christ Child this year. I thought it would be a nice idea to have these wise kings from long ago remind our family and anyone who sees them on their travels that Christmas is really not about the trappings and presents and trees. But it is about a Babe born over two centuries ago who’s purpose was to seek and save the lost.
They will be traveling our porch and yard all Christmas season long!
I’ve included them on the back porch for today. When we are enjoying all that Christmastime brings, remember…
to focus on its true meaning just like the wise men who traveled many miles to find the King they were looking for.
The Balsam Hill Three Kings are so beautifully made and very detailed. I love the king who has his crown in his hand. He knew who the real king was! His humble expression and adoration touches my heart!
Wishing you a Merry and Blessed Christmas from my back porch to yours!
