Shut the Front Door

So things have been rather busy around here but my husband and I have squeezed in a little bit of time to work on the house.  When I came home from my trip to Virginia he surprised me with a freshly painted front door and trim.  The door was hunter green before and now is a crisp white.

We still need to replace the weatherstripping around the door, so try to ignore the splotches of paint on the old weatherstripping.  It’s next on our list.  I also took the opportunity to make a new wreath.  I dug some warm fall colored fabrics out of my scrap pile and threw it together one night while watching tv.

Thanks! I love making them too, except when I get the hot glue on my fingers.
