On the Second Day of Christmas Decorating...

I usually enjoy decorating the urn on my front porch. However, today I learned that's it's much easier to fill the urn before the dirt feezes. However, after a bit of pushing and digging I managed to get things pretty much tucked in and organized.
I like the mix of fresh and artificial greenery. The silver picks remind me of the tinsel garland we used to put on the tree and they tie in well with the silver, gazing-ball type ornament.
One of my favorite shops to visit over the holidays is Mission Road Antique Mall. It's full of great vintage displays and I was pleased to find an iron Belsnickle that looked at home with my rusty urn and twiggy tree.
I don't know if he's an antique or not, but I really liked his look. So two days of decorating but still no tree! Hopefully we'll get that done this weekend, but if not we might settle for this look.
I guess there wouldn't be any needles to get stuck in the vacuum!

I love your displays, the urn is beautiful, and the Santa so great. The tree will come, yes, indeed!

Your home is so very tasteful and elegant. I would have never thought "prim" and "elegant" could go together - but you somehow have melded them into a perfectly unique style that is one-of-a-kind gorgeous! Love your new Belsnickle - and that twiggy tree is awesome! That last tree, tho, is just a hoot! No tree here yet either....Hope you have a great weekend! Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin

I have been looking for trees to put in my urns, no luck though. Either too big/small or too expensive!
I am going to decorate my urn like yours, thanks for the inspiration!!
