We Wish You a Merry Christ"Mesh"


Yes, indeedy ... the mesh has taken over the our front alcove.  And, it's all my husband's fault!

You see, in our house ... we have a rule.  The inside of the house is mine, and the outside of the house is his (well, actually, that's really mine, too, but I just let him *think* that it's his, lol).

Every year, when one more box of net lights is purchased ... *one* more spiral tree is added, and reindeers with moving heads arrive, there's my husband, with a big grin on his face.  He loves Christmas!  And, when he told me that he wanted to add garland above the door and for me to "make it pretty" (*while waving his hands in circles*), I knew I had my marching orders.  So, here's what I did:


Our mesh wreath isn't alone this year:


Once my husband added the garland above the door, I added matching red mesh, striped mesh and various ornaments: 


I couldn't stop there, so I went ahead and doused our plain topiaries with mesh and ornaments, as well:



While I'm always fearful to get too close to all of it, as I just *know* a family of lizards is going to jump out at me, I'm really enjoying it (and actually looking forward to adding MANY more ornaments next year)!  Plus, okay, it doesn't look too bad all lit up at night:


While we're out here ... you can see how I spared the wreaths on our windows from the mesh and only added an oversized, classic red bows:


Remember the reindeers with the moving heads? 


Of course, it *never* snows here, BUT, according to PicMonkey, it's snowing here right this minute!  Yay ... Merry Christ*Mesh!*


Thanks for visiting!  I'm off to play here:

Picture perfect porch and home....the picture of the front of your home looks like a beautiful movie scene...My hubby loves Christmas as much as I do...I guess that is why he does not mind the total house decorating....he is currently putting our porch together too....just waiting for more garland to arrive....You have done an amazing job Becca....as always!

Okay, HELLO gorgeous! Love! My mother-in-law enjoyed using mesh in her Christmas decor this year, and I can tell our love affair with the stuff is only going to grow as years continue! :-) I love the garland outside of your door, and the wreath is beautiful!

I love it!!!! We have so many net lights! I should have left them for you! Our new house doesn't have hedges or big shrubs yet. We ended up putting the net lights around the base of the columns! I wasn't going to NOT use them! I love how you laid the lights on the ground. You have your own snow! Tom suggested we do that in our front beds and I told him it would be a waste. He looked at me like I was crazy and I said that as soon as it snowed, you would never see them. I was right!!! :-)

It looks so pretty. I can't imagine living where it doesn't snow but honestly sometimes that would be ok with me! But we are suppose to have a white Christmas and that would be wonderful. Dianntha

It is so pretty, Becca. Please tell the hubby that I said so. They need their ego boost too, ya know :)
