A Christmas Pew

Do you ever buy yourself a little Christmas gift? One that no one else would ever buy for you. I did that last week.

I bought myself a pew. It was already painted red.


I set it right outside my front door on the covered patio.


I think it looks like a Christmas pew.


This lunch box I purchased at an estate sale has really come in handy. (I actually bought two last summer but one I planted flowers in and set it on my garden stepladder.)



I also put up a winter sign with two vintage ice fishing dippers.

I set an alpine tree and a little country wooden tree outside.


One tree is on a minnow bucket insert that is atop an old crate, and one is on a milk can.

I hung my recently purchased Victorian skates too.


I plan to set my pew in the house after I re-paint it. I love red, but I am going to tone it down some.

For this year, it will be my Christmas pew.

  14. I'm always sure to learn something new when I stop here, Carlene. I had no idea those scoopers were for ice fishing! Your pew looks like a nice place to sit and lace up those ice skates!

  23. Carlene,
    LOVE your new pew, and how wonderful it came already painted red! And where did you find that snowflakes sign? It is fabulous sitting on that bench! I have an old church pew that sits in our hallway. I've had it since the 1980s. It has been inside houses and on porches, and I could never, ever part with it. You will probably feel the same about yours!

  25. I love the pew you found! Yes, sometimes I do find a gift for myself. I'll hand it over to DH and ask him to wrap it along with whatever else he got for me.

  26. What an inviting Christmastime porch! Carlene, I love your new pew, and I love the way you've decorated the porch. I don't think I've ever seen any Victorian ice skates. Those are awesome, and I love the plaid ties in them. laurie

  27. I would have bought myself a gift like that too. Your whole porch area is the cutest! I am a huge fan of everything you've done out there. The Snowflakes sign and the snowflake wreath with the lunch box is just too cute. Then along with all those other goodies by the door, it's just so fun and festive!
