We’ve had a new front door put in earlier this year. We pretty much had to, as the wood in the old one was splitting and there was a howling gale coming through the gap. The new door has a glass top half which lets the sunlight stream in during the day, and at night, a lovely light glow from the lights inside. When I was doing the Christmas Fair at the end of November, I noticed some very different door decorations that appealed. I remember my mother making our Christmas wreath for the front door every year when I was a child, but I’m afraid I’m not that accomplished so we’ve just done without, or in some years I’ve bought a fresh one.
These, I found irresistible so I went ahead and bought one which is now adorning the front door. The glass top half makes it very easy to display while protecting it from the weather – so I guess we may have this one for a number of years to come. Naturally, I had to paint it for the Advent give aways.
