We have a tradition at our house. For many years I have made a front door wreath for every season to brighten our entry and say, "Welcome to our house!" Sometimes I buy a new style wreath form or a different size, and other times I strip and reuse a previous season's wreath and use new flowers, vines and ribbons. It's a silly little habit that delights the family and never fails to bring comments even when it is similar to one I have done before or not quite as stylish as the previous wreath.
Do you have a wreath on your door? I've always hoped I wasn't being foolish to consider my wreaths a tradition, so I was pleasantly surprised last week when I stopped by DD's house and saw her wreath on the door. I commented on how pretty it is and she said, "Thanks. I made it myself." The torch has been passed!
AND I think it is a little more welcoming than a neighbor's sign that says, " We don't dial 911."
Summer is supposed to be about hot colors, if we are to believe the fashionistas. I don't know if it can be called "hot" but the green Knit Picks Shine for the Sunshine Bag can only be described as GREEN! I have never used Shine yarn before and I'm loving it! I also love the linen stitch even though it makes my hands hurt a little. At least I think that's what is making my hands hurt. Maybe it's the ugly, rainy, heavy, yucky weather we are having? N-a-a-h-h-h.
Life is good!
