Summertime Door


Now that the 4th is over I decided it was time to replace my patriotic wreath with this simple blue basket of yellow, white, and blue flowers! Since the colors are soft and muted I think they give off the effect of "coolness!" Okay y'all, I know I'm just imagining that, but when it's 100 degrees you'll try anything!!

Hi Susan,

The basket does look cool and beautiful. I just love it. That isn't a longaberger mail basket painted blue is it? It really is pretty and looks even prettier on your door.

I want to have one just like that on my door too.

Love the new look at your front door. Very warm in Ohio and we will have to remember this beautiful door when it is 30 degrees out side.

I love the basket. I'm in a blue and yellow phase in my decorating. Not on my door because it's red, but my bedroom, bathroom, laundry and craft room.

I keep popping in. I miss your posts. Hope all is well!
