The simple pleasures of home shine brighter
when the spirit of God intertwines our hearts
with His gentle Joy.

Welcome to the Porch. . .

Welcome to the front porch On Crooked Creek . . .


" In the right light,


at the right time,


everything is extraordinary. "
                                                                                                     __Aaron Rose



" From home to home,


and heart to heart,


from one place to another,


the warmth and joy of Christmas


brings us closer to each other. "
__ Emily Matthews




 Armed with a SNOW shovel and clad in his brightest stocking hat and collar, Froggy is anxiously awaiting the arrival of our first SNOW!



Merry Christmas from the front porch On Crooked Creek!!!


Until next time. . .



On Crooked Creek is joining our dear hostess Debra @ Common Ground  for Vintage Inspiration Friday with my vintage folding chair, vintage paneless window and vintage milking stool from the front porch. Be sure to visit and be inspired to use more of your vintage finds in your own home decor!

Your porch is really cute. Great chair and lanterns. Froggy is a good thing to have in case of snow. He looks so spiffy in that hat. Thanks for sharing your Christmas porch.

Hi Pat! Your porch is so lovely and how I loved hearing about your family traditions! Even when our married children can't be with us at Christmas time, we still read the Christmas story before we open our presents! Just seems like the right thing to do since Christmas is about the baby Jesus who became our Savior!
Merry christmas to you,
shelia ;)
