  1. Hi Lora ! Your porch is amazing. I love how it looks with the snow and the scarf on the snow covered wreath is perfect. There are so many fantastic vintage items on your porch. It makes me want to shop your porch!

      Well, there’s an idea, Anna! When I’m ready to clear out, I’ll remember that;)

  2. Love it all especially the scarves

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thanks, Gail!

  3. That snow came at a perfect time, love the ideas for the scarves. Your front porch is so cute. I’ve just started and you gave me some great ideas, thanks and Merry Christmas.

      Glad you enjoyed it, Marlene!

    You have the best ideas ! I don’t have a porch, but I still see a couple of ways I could use plaid scarves, on a wreath, and maybe on a railing. WOW. So cute !

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Glad you got some ideas, Sarah!

  5. Great ideas! I love JUNK and using it for Christmas is my thing! Thanks for sharing 🌲

      Yes, Junky Christmas is the best!

  6. Oh my goodness! Absolutely magical. Happy holidays to you.

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      I appreciate that, Renae; thanks!

  7. Laura: I’m loving your junk porch. More like lots of vintage goodness front porch. I too am an old MN girl now living in NE. I love your aesthetic and so enjoy your blog. I would like to invite you to come on over to my side!!!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thanks so much, Shelley! Just visited your blog and I’m so jealous you went to Trans Siberian; have always wanted to see them. Hope Christmas decorating is going well; it is tiring!

  8. Love the vintage goodies! Those blue skates are so pretty! I have some vintage black and whites ones but haven’t seen that color. I also have one of the plaid lunchboxes in a Christmas display in my kitchen. I haven’t had much luck finding thrifted plaid scarves, but I had the idea of cutting up fleece throw blankets into strips with fringe on the ends to make scarves. No sewing is needed since fleece doesn’t ravel! I found a couple of different plaid ones at the Dollar Store and Aldi for $5-6! Thanks for sharing!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Wonderful, thrifty, resourceful idea, Vicki! Thanks for sharing:)

  9. SO PRETTY!!!! Your whole yard looks like a magical snowglobe!! I LOVE that blue skate…what a stunning photo…it could be in a magazine! Such fun ideas Lora…all your scarves are genius!

      My mom scored those skated at a church sale for me years ago and they’re my favorite:) Thanks always for your positive, fun comments, Rachel. Appreciate each and every one:)

  10. LOVE LOVE all your vintage porch goodies, Lora. I could spend hours, even in the freezing cold, enjoying each item and vignette. What a fun idea with all the scarves!! Have a wonderful week!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Aw, thanks, friend. I always enjoying seeing your vintage goodies, too!

    Love the blue accents!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thanks! Mom scored them for me years ago:)

  12. Love the blue cabinet on the porch, thank you for the great tips. I can see I need to add more greenery to my porch area.

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Yes, greens go a long way in the beauty dept!

    Your porch decorated with vintage junk for Christmas warms my heart! Our porch is decorated in a similar manner although on a smaller scale. It was fun to pull things out of storage in the garage when a new idea hit me. My favorite things to use are a toboggan trimmed in red, a pair of my old ice skates, my husband’s very old hockey skates along with a small pair of children’s skates, old mittens, a small red child’s sled, and red skis with green accents throughout the display like a green shutter with a pine tree cutout (similar to what you found). I love decorating this way because it is different from what our neighbors do and it is interesting to those passing by. I will enjoy looking through all of the posts you pulled together. Thanks for the inspiration!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Your collection sounds amazing, Pat! Sounds absolutely adorable:) I’m sure your neighbors love to see your festive display!

  14. Love your blue cupboard and the green enamel pot. You always find vintage things I love!

      Yes, I am a vintage addict. Love to spread the disease:)
