Here in Colorado our screened-in porch is unusable in the winter.  We are presently in a period of a week strait of temperatures below freezing, and that is snow out in the yard!  But, I usually decorate for Christmas a little bit on the porch so there is something festive to see through the living room French doors.
Bob made the primitive Santa about 25 years ago.  The family  calls him Santa Bob because we think it is actually a self-portrait!

The 'wonky' tree seems to belong with Santa Bob.  Yes, that is dirt you see on the floor - just pretend it adds to the rustic nature of the decorations.  
We really do need to get the sweeper out there -- another thing on the 'to do' list this week.  Is your 'to do' list also very lengthy this time of the year?

But, I'm taking time this week to check out the following for mega inspiration:
Must Love Junk for a rustic Christmas on 12/9
Cozy Little House for Tweak it Tuesday
Ivy and Elephants for What's It Wednesday
The Charm of Home for Home Sweet Home Friday
Funky Junk Interiors for Saturday Nite Special

I have to admit: I love Bob! And lol about the dirt. I can't tell you how many times I've taken pictures only to see a dust ball or something. =)

Brrr. It may be colder here, but I doubt it. I'm waiting for a warmer day to go out and cut some branches for some simple decorating in here. Things are a huge mess as my daughter and SIL have moved in with me due to some issues with a roommate that asked them to leave. This woman is now going to have to make the huge house payments on her own now and has lost Sarah as a friend. So decorating is not on my list right now--we need to find some space for their things.
The only problem is that I have lots of my own stuff! Time to get busy!! By the way, I had to look for the dirt. It's really not that obvious to me. Santa looks ready to deliver!♥♫
