Doors of Welcome

Karen http://somedaysarediamonds-karen.blogspot.com/ is hosting Doors of Welcome today.

Be sure to stop over and see all the beautiful homes and their Doors of Welcome.

If you are a follower of this blog you probably have already seen our home and front door. I hope you will bear with me.

This is a pic showing the entire front. We love to change the decor to fit the season. All pics should enlarge.The Fall is the longest season to have decorations up.

I painted the pumpkin face in front of the tree a few years back. He looks so jolly and friendly when you approach the house.



I love all the warm colors, pumpkins, gourds and mums.



Come on in and sit a spell.



We can sip some cider, munch on cookies and get to know each other better.




I got the metal pumpkins from Kirkland a couple of years ago.







Thanks for stopping by today. Enjoy the rest of your week!

Security of the home should be considered more important, so its best to buy the storm doors and installed in your home. You can feel the pleasure of watching outside movements, at the same time well protected from insects,driving rain, damaging hail and gusty winds. It also reduces the effect of air leaks from the primary door, thus saves energy.
