Outdoor Wednesday - Christmas Decorations

Here are some shots of our house decorated for Christmas. These are before and after the snow shots. My husband, whose nickname is Smokey loves to decorate the outside for Christmas. We call him Clark Griswold. Every year he keeps adding something. I never know what he will come home with. The carolers in the front are from a yard sale that he picked up for $1.00 because they wouldn't work. He brought them home and re-wired them and now they are as good as new, even though they're probably 20 years old. He has a sound system in our attic that he has hooked to the carolers so they sound like they're singing. What will he think of next? For more Outdoor Wednesday pics, please visit Susan over at A Southern Daydreamer.


  1. love the glowing wisemen in your snowy shot. have a wonderful Christmas!

  2. Merry Christmas! Smokey sure did a nice job wiring the Carolers; but to hook them up to a sound system is an amazing idea. Nice photographs too. I like to go to garage sales too.

  8. So picturesque and how lucky to have such a handyman for a husband! I love that the carolers and I believe they're even older than 20 years. What a great find!

    The details I see when I enlarged your photos are simply stunning!

    Merry Christmas to you and yours.

  9. What a beautiful home you have and I love how it looks in the snow. Those carolers in your yard are so pretty too. Have a Very Merry Christmas!

  10. I don't imagine you get much snow like that down south. It sure is a nice addition to your beautiful home and decorations. How clever of your husband to rewire and add music to the carolers.
