Today I had the day off in honor of Martin Luther King Jr. I spent the majority of the morning and early afternoon perusing old Martha Stewart Living and BHG magazines getting ideas for the new bedroom and purging my rather large magazine collection (Will is thrilled :-) Then I realized that I was long overdue for a wreath change.
I LOVE wreaths or welcome signs on my front door. I have such a unique looking front door that I feel it deserves some sort of decoration. Plus there's a big ugly nail in the middle above the window that begs to have something hung on it. Plus I feel weird having a clear glass window on my front door in which anyone from the outside could see me walking up my stairs in my pj's. No thanks. And I bet they feel the same :-) Plus I'd hate to have it covered up by curtains.

No, I didn't make this. But someone did, so it's almost like I did. Plus I had to fluff the bow. So that counts. Right?
PS Does the bow look a little overwhelming to anyone else? After seeing it in a picture I'm thinking I might have to tone it down a bit...
