welcome

My house is pretty neglected at the moment.  Work and life have kept me very busy.  But hey - if you just have time to do one thing, why not something that everyone who sees the front door will see?

So after seeing the following beautiful front door arrangement:

and looking at my tired February flowers

(Before)



 I headed off to Michael's.  I bought some twisty twigs, some greenery, and a little metal sign.  


I painted it with two coats of chalkboard paint.

And of course wrote Welcome in chalk.  I am looking forward to changing the greeting for holidays and special occasions.

Thanks for stopping by!
I hope you will become a follower.

  12. I love your basket! So springy and pretty! I have been very busy lately as well...and my door has been empty since I took the Christmas decor down...which is totally not like me! I always have something on the front door! I think I need to dig around and see what I come up with. I love the little Welcome sign too!
