What's on your door?
Today in my salon, I had a cute conversation with my mother in law (who is also a favorite client.) She amusingly commented about how much she Hates Wreaths! She told me that in her apartment complex, "crazy people are hanging Gaudy wreaths on their doors for every damn occasion!" She wants NO PART in their Shenanigans! As she drives by all the scores of doors, the crazy variety of wreaths agitates her! haha
Heart Wreaths followed by spring time bouquet wreaths, Summer inspired wreaths, autumn leaf wreaths and of course..The proverbial Christmas wreaths!
I began to realize that some homes I've passed who apparently are 'door fanatics', are even wreath changing for the 4th of july, St Patricks day, halloween, Thanksgiving. Next it will be presidents damn day! I thought her zealous opinion was so cute and so very funny! It made me curious to know if this wreath thing is reaching epidemic proportions! I, myself am guilty... I change my door decoration for many of the major holidays. I have a Large yellow chick I put up for Easter, A Tin santa wreath for Christmas, and a scarecrow with colorful leaves for fall. The rest of the year it's a 1/2 circle of silk blue flowers! Right now I don't have a Valentines wreath, but I do have heart stickers on my storm door. Am I a door fanatic? Oh no, I may be!
So I am going to ask my blog visitors... What's on your door..... year round?? Be honest now, Don't keep your wreath obsession in the 'closet'! Are we getting a little carried away? Or Is this just another attempt at making our homes more inviting? Let me hear from you!
