The Front Porch

I'm not sure why, but every once in awhile, I get this oh so crafty feeling.  It hasn't hit me in quite some time.  But the other day, the feeling hit with a vengeance.  

I decided to take it out on my front porch this time.  It needed a little sprucing up.  So here's what I came up with after perusing a few magazines.


Now isn't this monogram wreath the cutest thing ever?  I thought so to.
And thanks to my friend Tiffany, I have become quite obsessed with having a chalkboard or two around my house.  I think this is the perfect place to have one- you can put a cute quote on it for your guests to read while they are waiting for you to put yourself together before you answer the door- or you could just write "go away" on it if you don't want anyone to visit.  :) You could announce a birthday, or share some gossip with the neighborhood.  The possibilities are endless here.  Be creative.
So come on by- you're sure to feel welcome as you wait out on my porch....that is unless the sign says "I don't answer the door on days that end with 'y'. "


  1. Awww, it looks so cute! I love the big M and you know how I feel about chalkboards! Love the quote too!

  2. Totally inspirational. Love the monogram wreath, & I love the idea of not answering the door on days that end with a y!
