Walkabout Wednesday

While I think it’s a little too early for Christmas decorations (I’m a firm believer in no Christmas until December), I have to admit a little snow makes the neighbour’s decorations look a little less out of place.

This house is just a few doors up from us. It looks much more impressive at night (they have a lot of lights), but I do love the way they wrapped the pillars with red ribbon.

They also have these cute little guys on either side of the walkway.

A little further up the street, the welder has decorated the flag pole at his ship. Again, this is much more impressive at night. The lights go all the way to the top of the flag pole.

This house with two units has a really nice display set up (though I do find those bright yellow doors a little distracting).

And I love how this house decorated their front door. (But look to the left… they still have some Hallowe’en decorations out… lol).

Around the corner and down the street, this house has filled their barrels. This is similar to what I plan on doing with my white planter boxes…. though on a much smaller scale of course.

And last, I think this house is of a mind with me. They put up their decorations when the weather was milder, but are keeping them under wraps until closer to the actual Christmas season!

Next month, I’ll have to do a walkabout a night to get you some pictures of all these houses lit up and lovely!

  1. I love Christmas decorations at night when they are all lit up, but I always think they are a little sad in the daytime. 🙂 We have a lot of neighbors who put theirs up this past week when it’s been nice outside. I love the pretty lights but also think we’re rushing the season. Lets do Thanksgiving, (in the U.S.), first please. 🙂
    Blessings and hugs,


  2. Thankfully, our snow has melted!
    I will say, that I’m a bit of a snob when it comes to house numbers; folks need to use fun (but readable by a car driving down the street) font!
    When I found house numbers in typewriter font a few years ago, I ordered immediately, but The Hubby was unhappy; he thought the metal digits that his father put up about 50 years ago were fine.

    I have not seen any outdoor Christmas decorations on my morning walks. There are several houses that have their trees up. I walk about 6:00 a.m. so it’s nice to see the tree lights.


  4. We are down in Herndon, Virginia and Christmas is HERE! There are many, MANY apartment complexes and one balcony was full on GRISWALD!!!! It was pretty, but wow! They’re right near Dulles Airport. I hope no pilot gets confused.


  5. I’ve seen plenty going up around here. I even drove by a house yesterday and I could see in their front window that their Christmas tree was up and decorated in the house!! TOO EARLY.
