Southern Christmas porch {rustic}

Not sure what exactly defines a Southern Christmas porch.
 But hey, I live in the South, and this is my rustic porch!
I never got around to showing you the other side, because I had one last touch to add.

I wanted to add a poinsettia...
While out with the girls yesterday I spied this big "OLD" SOUP pot.
Loved it, and at $9.00 it was coming home with me.
The lady at the checkout asked me what kind of soup I was making...

Soup? I said oh yes, poinsettia and cabbage soup..ever hear of it?

I love these big ole stockings I bought several years back at the Dollar tree.

Cute little ginger bread cooking cutters I scored in an antique store in Western New York for a few bucks, I knew I would find something to do with them.

Love my little family pillow.

And there is the rest of my Southern front porch. A little rustic,  little old, a little new,  little whimsy and you put it all together to create a warm Holiday Hello!

Gorgeous Carolina day here today.  A little brisk, but the sun is shining, and the sky is ever so blue.

Enjoy your day!

Oh I love those big gingie cookie cutters. I would have snagged those too. Your porch is very inviting and very similar I dare say to ours out here. No snow for us but still have plants and flowers.

It looks very sweet! I'd call mine a Northern porch, simply because of all the snow on it. Brrr, we recently moved to this new city and it's freeeeeezing here!

You're so funny! I bet the lady gave you a funny look when you told her about the type of soup you were making. Ha! It's a cute addition to your porch. Your rockers look perfect outside in their red paint too.

Hi Debbie ... love your porch and see Mr. Roo out there with his white winter coat (of paint) on. Your detail is the greatest and your pictures hold my interest. Makes we want to redo my porch.

You are making a divine soup on that porch Debbie. I like that red wreath too. I bought a large pickle crock recently and a little lady told me I could make pickles and I said I could but that's not what's going to happen. Tidings of Joy from Olive and Joe

It was 29 degree's cold when I woke this morning..took most of the day for the temps to climb. It's now 44 and feeling warmer..but, the reason I bring this up is it's so cute to see the standing fan on your decorated should add some red ribbon to it..LOL! Brrr!

I do love your front porch! Love the rocking chairs and all your festive touches including the big old enamal soup pot! It's bitterly cold here today so a poinsettia on the porch would be dead! Yours looks perfect in the pot! Blessings, Pamela in Canada
