Through the 4th Floor Door Christmas Entrance

Living on the 4th floor of our apartment unit, I must climb 62 steps or 7 flights of stairs to get to my front door.

Yep 62 steps up and down everyday at least 5 to 6 times a day.

I was contemplating whether or not to decorate my front door.  The other 5 occupants may or may not see my Christmas decorations but certainly my 4th floor neighbor would (at least).

Oh what the heck.  Let's take a tour:

I made these Stocking Santa dolls many years ago.  Throughout their lives they decorated my home in Guam.  This is their first time to be displayed in Germany.

Oh lookey.
The Tri-Triangular Santas
Do you see the rag garland around the door?  It was a comforter that I found at the thrift shop.  Isn't it beautiful?

 I garnished the rag garland with egg shell angel pugs.  Oh yes.  I love pugs.  

Oh me, oh my look at what I found in my favorite thrift store.  And where is my favorite thrift store?
Birkenfeld, Germany.
This cute little girl's ice skate only costed me 1 Euro.

 I so love how the little girl's ice skate became the focal point of........

my ice skate wreath.

And now I take you

I hope you enjoyed your visit.
Next on my project list for Christmas is
the hot cocoa bar.

Until next time.
Tah-tah for now.

Welcome Home Wednesday
Vintage on a Dime


  1. I live in the country and my driveway is 1/2 mile long. No one but the mail delivery lady or maybe FedEx delivery sees my front decorations but I do it anyway. But then the whole world sees it via the internet...right? So I am glad you did your apartment door. I love it and your garland is the best I have seen. Very clever!

  2. Hi Lynn - My home in Guam is the same. It's on a family compound and I am at the end. Nobody sees my front door except the passengers on perhaps one side of a plane that flies by. But you are right - the whole world can see it via the internet. I am delighted that you like my rag garland. I have one for eash season (even though we have only one season on Guam [tropical LOL]).

  3. Oh, I adore your stocking Santas! Beautiful garland and wreath!
