Please, don’t hate me.

I really have zero patience for door-to-door solicitation of *any* kind. I’m talking everyone from pest control companies to girl scouts. They sometimes interrupt my very precious family time on weekend or in the evenings and I am just over it. So…if there is such thing as a nice way to tell people to KEEP AWAY, well, maybe this sticker is it (available here).

our new addition

with 2 comments

Today we added a gnome to the front yard. I hope he makes my neighbors as happy as he makes me & the kids…hmm why do I get a sinking feeling that he won’t?
Daughter named him Mr. Christmas. We found him for $30 at HomeGoods.

front door, before.

before: front door

My hope is that working on the front door will inspire me to tackle the rest of the entrance and then the front yard. Right now, that all feels super overwhelming.

Another thought: how about switching out our current side panel for a single glass piece? See the first door in the previous entry. Oh damn, I have a feeling I’m going to want a new front door. Must. Resist.
