Our Red Door

We closed on our new home this past Monday, and as promised, here's a picture of our red door with our new Christmas wreath.







The painters have finished, and it looks more like home inside. We move tomorrow! Please understand if I'm slow to respond as I'll be a bit busier than usual. However, I promise that I'll return every visit and comment.

O my goodness...this is so so beautiful. I am just DYING to see the inside....
Tell me, Sally girl...would you have had the door painted red BEFORE you started blogging??..or has the BlogWorld done you as it's done me...thinking outside the box?
It is a beautiful house.

How exciting! Good luck on your move, Sally! Take it easy on your back. When I moved into my house in FL, I ended up in the hospital from sniffing lots of mixed cleaning chemicals and fatigue. Like an energizer bunny, I just did not know when to stop until I passed out at work, lol. Love your home and red door....Christine

Karen said...

Hello Sally!
What a beautiful red door you have and a gorgeous wreath to boot! I'm so very glad you stopped by because now I get to watch your new adventure of a BRAND NEW home and all of your excitement.

Oh - I hope you didn't truly feel that way when you visited me. I don't want that. I just have so much fun decorating, and I love to share any little idea I might have so that maybe someone else can use it too. And it is so fun seeing everyone else's ideas too.

I hope we can visit each other again. Congratulations and Merry Christmas!
