Julia’s Santa motif didn’t stop at the door. No, it extended onto her porch where it’s not uncommon for guests to gather even into winter. (Missouri, where Julia lives, can often be unseasonably warm.) There, Santa (in pillow form) was tucked under a charming quilt, creating a cozy outdoor vignette that beckoned guests.
