PB Inspired Outdoor Decor

First I want to say hello to all of my new followers! Welcome! It is such a surprise to see that people actually want to follow me and see what ideas I come up with (or in today's post copy!)! Oh I am completely in love with blogging! Thank you all! Thank you to everyone who leaves such sweet comments too!!

Ok so I got my Pottery Barn catalogue a couple weeks ago and I was so drawn to this entry way!

 Was anybody else? My mother is probably thinking I am completely nuts for liking a bundle of sticks over a doorway but I loved the look of ornaments hanging from the branches! Plus there is nothing about this that I don't have laying around the house (or in the backyard)!

So I grabbed up some sticks tied them together and hung them from the overhang of my porch! I tied ribbon to all of the ornaments and tied them to the branches in all different lengths. Then I hung the branches using fishing line! I love how it turned out!

Here's the rest of my porch decor!

And at night!

I had red ornaments hanging from the swags (technical term there) but the wind blew them off and now I can't find them! Maybe next year I'll do wreaths instead...

I know I need to paint the underside of the porch roof (and the porch itself, and I want to paint the front door, and so the list continues!)



  1. There is nothing better than using natural elements. Especially when they are free. It's amazing how many projects you can do with sticks. You did such a great job. I love the originality. Has the perfect ambiance with your white rockers...

    Take care,

  2. Your porch looks delightful! I love the idea of the branches - that would be fun for the Fall too, with pine cones hanging. :)

    Happy VTT,

  3. Glad I found your blog. I am with you, since I started blogging my whole life has changed. I enjoyed visiting and seeing all you shared today. I am joining your other friends as a follower.

  4. Love the outdoor decor with the branches and the ornaments! Looks very festive :)


  5. Yes your mom does think you are a little odd, but I gues you came by in naturally! XOXOXO

  6. Love it--I just shared the PB inspired pitchers on the front door. Thanks for linking up!

  8. Lisa, LV, Alisa, Kathy- Thank you!!

    Sally- Good idea to use this in my fall decor! I'll have to remember that for next year!

    Mom- Yes crazy runs in the family (I wouldn't have it any other way!)

    Becky- Loved your pitchers on the mirror!

  9. It looks wonderful. The white rocking chairs add the perfect finishing touch too!

  10. Hello! I found you at Cottage Instincts and I am loving your blog! I wanted to invite you to enter my $50 American Express giveaway and my link party that are both going on this week! Keep up the great blogging and happy holidays! -Dana
