I shared pics of my Baker's Rack last week ...well, we've had some continually nice, nice weather ...50 deg! So I went ahead & did up some more for Winter decor. No more pretty blooms for awhile so I like to add 'pine greenery' outdoors so I can enjoy it during the cold days from inside!

Out my porch windows: Here's an old washtub on legs filled w/plastic pots of dirt (from annuals this summer) ...I cut pine greenery & poke them in the dirt here & there ...added some Curly Willow branches that I had painted red 2 seasons ago & a solar light glass globe...a place for the birds to perch as they come to the waterer:

..and here's some birds enjoying the bird waterer just a bit ago! Winter Birdbath A11.12

Winter Birdbath C11.12

Gathered some more pinecones yesterday & cut some more branches for my 'potting table' outdoors's a close-up of greenery in the cast iron window box w/a rusty star:

...and a clearance hanging basket filled w/pinecones, a chunk of log & recycled coconut liner orange for color & for the birds!

Here's another view:

Yup, those are chimes hanging on the right ... let the bells ring in the Winter season ...but right now I'm happy to have FALL!! Happy Thanksgiving! Jeanne S.

Jeanne, love all this greenery with your wash tub, bird bath, red painted curly willows, metal star, door w/potting bench and wire basket. The picture with the birds there enjoying is such a beautiful sight. So nice your weather has cooperated so you could get your outdoor decorating done. Sweeeeet!

Wonderful pictures, Jeanne.
Have you ever had any of them published?
I think the ones of the birds enjoying a bath are darling.

Beautiful as always Jeanne! Your decorations are always so welcoming and warm feeling. Your washtub is so neat and your potting bench is a favorite of mine too! TFS~
