Well... it's a little like art.. and a little like decoration... that's always the divisions.. although the bondaries are blured.. between the two...
I decrate my street planter for Christmas.. you might remember it from last year.. my gingerbread house
It survived last year on the sreet.. and I put it out on the street again today.. with a few upgrades...
I build up the house out of 1 " thick foam... and get the iceing look with a white caulk..... the kids would stop to look through the windows that had a LED votive candle in them... So this year I put a tiny decorated tree inside.. with minature lights.. and a glass Santa to greet the ones that peer into the windows.. I strung 150' of ribbon up to the top where string trellis had been.. and now has the ribbon and some sparkley snow flakes.. and some solar lit snowflakes.. which are only visable in the first blury available light photo.. then there's the house with a flash.. and a view the kids have of it insideThumb of 2012-12-04/GordonHawk/6b9b05

Gordon, that is just the cleverest thing! I love it.

And Paul, how beautiful.

I love this season. Gaudy and mad with colors!
Like the top hat on my tree. But I didn't want to waste a real poinsettia bloom on it, so silk it is.

Very nice everyone.
Sharon, Such a creative idea using the hat.
Gordon, Beautiful display, love the lighted stars on the ribbons. Really adds to the display.
Paul great hanging basket.
Ric, spent a good bit of time yesterday putting up lights, ribbons and cutting and hanging greens. The huge Juniper hedge along our property and Leland cypress row provide a good bit of greenery for us to use and share. I can't seem to generate much in the way of festive berries so I depend on artificial ones.
Life is Great! Holly

We had our oldest GS (9) the last few days. Spent Friday night driving around our area looking at Christmas lights. There are a few really big displays in our area. Had a great time. Then yesterday we went and picked out our tree and got it decorated. We sure had a lot of fun.

My husband and I drove around some of the housing developments last evening, and came upon one house that took the cake -- I've never seen so many lights. Several lighted yard fixtures, lights around every window, the eaves, the chimney, and laying in tight lines across the entire roof surface. And they all were blinking! What a sight that was...but glad they are not my immediate neighbor!
I want to live in a world where the chicken can cross the road without its motives being questioned.

My husband does all of our outside Christmas decorations... and we have now won our (small) town decorating contest 3 years out o 4 that we've been doing this! That other year I think we got second place. My husband channels his inner 'Clark Griswold', LOL!
