outdoor decorations

It is already the second day of december.
I know this season will fly by so fast, and I want to enjoy every second of it.
Today my Home for chRistmas blogpost will be all about outdoor decorations.
It is freezing cold in Oslo, about minus 20 degrees Celcius outside my window.
Anyhow I love the winter, the little layer of snow that covers the ground and the beautiful winter-light.
I enjoy ice-skating and skiing, but after being out for a while it is wonderful to get home.

I tried to make the area outside my door welcoming and pretty with some cute, rustic decorations.

I have a vintage-looking birdhouse, where it actually is room for a real bird to come in, and if they like I have some little seeds inside the house for the birds to eat.

I also used some felted hearts and some grain sheaf ( nek in norwegian ) along with the bird-house and with two lantherns.
I have some real vintage wooden fruit boxes outside my door to put my decorations inside and on top.
It is hard for the birds to find something to eat during the winter, and I thought i was nice to welcome the birds to my front door as well as it looks pretty for my friends and family when they come home.

This moss-and-twig-heart is simply decorated with a leaf I found on the ground and a felted heart.
The moss-and-twig-heart is bought in a flower-shop, but it is possible to make one too using twigs and thin metal wire, and decorate with moss.
I found a really cute heart here at the " sweet Paul" blog .
Have a great day, and enjoy the season!

So nice to think of beautiful decorations that also serve as a place for the birds to visit.
