A Warm Welcome...

One of my favorite past-times here in Europe is checking out old door hardware as we stroll around.  Just this week, I took my mom to one of my favorite villages.... Yvoire, France, and while I've been there many times before; I just noticed this fantastic door handle on the 16th century church...

It's fun to think that even hundreds of years ago, folks cared about a little thing we now call "curb appeal".  

Spring is the perfect time to spruce up an entry with flowers in planters or a new door color.  I especially love when an entry not only works well with the style of the home but also gives a sense of the homeowner's personality.  I think this combination would capture me pretty well...
