WELCOME to my home…


This is what would greet you if you popped in on me! A welcoming front door that has been freshly painted red, a substitute “wreath” and cheerful chalk board!


This little beauty I picked up at DI. It’s a Plastic Resin frame so super light weight and ideal for hanging in lieu of a traditional wreath!!! It was only $1.50!!!!! A little spray paint and Raulph Lauren Tobacco Glaze later…Bada BING bada BANG!!!! The perfect door adornment!


I absolutely love my Chalk Board!!!! The perfect way to spread a little cheer! I have already had neighbors call to tell me it stops them in their tracks as they drive by!!! They can’t wait to see what greetings I’ll post next!!!

I also picked this little guy up at DI, our local Thrift Store! It originally was a Calendar Display. I paid $3 for it and added the spray on Chalk Board paint. I hung it with small chain and hooks and called it good!!! I LOVE IT!!! I LOVE IT!! I LOVE IT!!! Perfect for Birthday wished, welcoming guests and happy sayings!

So riddle me this… what should I write on my board!?! Send me your favorite greetings, quotes or sayings and ideas!!! I’d love to write them and share them with my neighbors!!!

Today’s greeting welcomes home our newest neighbor!!!Baby WILL!!!CAn you feel the love!?!

    What a cool idea!

    There are so many things that are running through my head to write on your board.

    Smile at a Stranger
    Love, Laugh, Live
    Giggles are Contagious
    Carpe Diem

    Oh now that is a great idea. For me Im all about movie quotes. Then your neighbors can play the Name The Movie Game. Some of my favorites are:

    "Go Focus on your Eggs Bob"
    "What's that got to do with the price of eggs?"
    "That caviar is a garnish"

    Just a few from some of my favorite movies.
    So fun!!!

    What a super cool idea for the front door. My door faces direct sun, so whatever I've tried to hang instantly loses color. This may be the perfect solution. (My door's the same color red, too:) Gonna keep my eyes open for a fun, texture-y frame.

  15. 15

    What color is the frame? I love it!

  16. 16

    I love the frame idea on the front door! How did you put the bow on?

  17. 17

    I am also wondering what color that frame is. I love it! It’s perfect!

  18. 18

    I may be out of the loop, but what is DI? I love your ideas and I’m very excited to try them at home… as soon as I figure out what DI is. And it looks like you tied the bow onto the wreath holder?

      DI is a local thrift store chain! They are not everywhere but thrift stores all seem to have great frames. And I tucked in the bow into the wreath hanger!
