At the Door.....

My front entrance needed a little pick-me-up.  I had been churning some ideas around in my head for a few weeks and I finally made the decision when I was able to pick up these 6-inch letters for  one dollar each at a local discount store.

Can you guess what they spell?  Take another look as I spray paint them Antique White.
Got it yet??
Yep.  There it is.  That's a good greeting for the front entryway, right?
And here is where it hangs:
I'd seen this somewhere on Pinterest months ago only the homeowner had use the words, "Shoes Off Please."  My word feels a little warmer - a little more "WELCOMING." 
I spruced up the area with a new silk flower arrangement, too.  I stuck with cream and pale green, and accented with a few sticks and a rusty metal star decoration.
Here is the whole area, lit by the sunshine that streamed through the windows today while snow whirled through the air.  It was a wonderful day to do "home-making" type things inside our cozy home.  
Thanks for coming for a visit.  I'd love to hear what you think of my spruced up foyer.  Comments are always welcome.  And you know, I'm always looking for a few new FOLLOWERS!
