I have a new door knocker! What do you think?
I imagine that it will turn into Marley and haunt me.
I usually make an oak leaf wreath every fall, but I just don't have time this year. I made this one in literally 10 minutes with a foam base and sheets of moss. I added a drape of burlap I was done. Simple and quick. I'm thinking I need one more, though, for the other door since this is so simple.
I scanned a picture from my House Beautiful magazine to show you my front entry inspiration. Even though my door is more blue than purple the pops of green are perfect. All I need now is a green glass pendant and (eventually) I will trade up for some really nice green urns. Mine are fine and I love the color. I especially love this because the inside of my house is decorated with a lot of greens and blues. I think it is fun to have the outdoor entry announce, in bolder hues, what my friends and family can expect on the inside.
My pots are from Walmart. $16 each.
Even my garden is done in a range of blues and of course, white. I have one red mini-rose (do you see it?) thrown in...it came with us from our last home and I think it is kind of fun to have a rabble-rouser in there!
