So, I have a tiny dilemma. Actually, a vary narrow dilemma. Our front door area is small. I want that space to be welcoming as people approach our home but the space is well, narrow.
Have you ever done this? Found something you really liked at a store and thought to yourself, "Self, you are going to remember this and when you have a little extra money to spend you are going to come back and buy it." Only, when you had the extra money you went back to the store and suddenly decided that maybe you didn't like it as much as you thought you did? I know it's another form of unshopping and I have that down to an art which is beginning to bug me a little bit. But this time it wasn't so bad because when I showed Rob the wreath, (did I mention it was a faux rosewood wreath from Target for the front door because it was) he made that face he makes when he doesn't really care for something but he can tell I kind of like it and he doesn't want to hurt my feelings.
Needless to say, if I'm second guessing the item and he doesn't care for it I'm not going to get it...especially at that price.
So I'm back to square one and doing what I do when I looking for inspiration. I hit the blogosphere. And let me just say that there are some pretty interesting ways people decorate their front door ways. I really liked some of the ideas but none of them seemed to really fit us. And I also wasn't looking for something to switch out for seasons and holidays...that would drive my love batty.
But I combined a couple of things that I thought were really neat and came up with something that again, I thought was really kind of neat. But, Rob got that look on his face again. Let me add in his defense that he liked the actual article fine...he just doesn't necessarily want it on our front door. And Sarah's response was, and I quote, "Mom, that's just weird."
Now, I'm going to bring it to you...should it stay or go? Does it just need a little something else or just start all over?
Come on...tell me what ya think. I can take it. Unless, you're...like, totally mean or something.
