Welcome Is Such a Beautiful Word....



My Niece gave me a sweet front door hanging for Valentines day and her little girl, JoJo helped me hang it.  The Welcome hanging has been there for weeks now and I did not want to put it away for next year because it has such special memories for me.



 So rather than take it down I decided to paint it in colors of the country... browns, greens and creams.


My basket of craft paint has just about every color and I mixed a few to give them each a country hue.





There, first coat is on and now to hang it on the blank wall, that I keep a nail in for just such things, to dry for the night.


Then it's time to give it a bit of pizzaz.... Which is nothing more than a few dots of cream craft paint and a bit of contrasting smudges.



Now with it's new paint, my door hanging can stand the test of time and all seasons.

Thank you, Mona and JoJo.
I just love it because it reminds me of our special time together.
I did leave the cupcake, to remind me of the day JoJo and I made those special little treats.


I've always found it so hard to put away such gifts.  Redoing it in another fashion is ok when the main part of the gift is held intact. 

 Welcome is just a wonderful word to have on your front door.
It tells all your family and friends to come on in.

"Have a great weekend everyone"

There's not a better word for hanging near the door. It's the best sort of statement!
