Doors of Welcome


Today Applejack Lane is joining Karen at Some Days are Diamonds for the Doors of Welcome party.
Greetings!  Welcome to Applejack Lane!
 
  A Santa flag blows in the wind...


To the side door we go where everyone enters...



Decorated with gingerbread cookies...

Hubby's childhood sled...
Candles in the windows...

Burning brightly through the evening..
At last to the front door and a topiary tree saved from my mother's decorations...

Merry Christmas from Applejack Lane!

Joan. There is so much here that just makes me smile. I LOVE your adorabale Ho Ho Ho flag. And your husband's sled, the candles in the window . . . all of it.
Thanks so much for joining in. FUn huh?

p.s. If you come home one night and your gingerbread cookies are gone, DO NOT look on my kitchen Christmas Tree OK? :)

Oh I love the little gingerbread men on your swag! So cute! And I am downright jealous of all you girls with sleds. I don't believe I've ever even SEEN a sled in Texas! Thank you for sharing yours. :)
