So A-door-able

I've been wishy washy over the front door {blue front door? new doggy door?}, but this summer I decided to paint the picnic table black (perhaps unconsciously inspired by Abbey?) then decided the door needed to be black, too. It would bring out the iron work on the porch and put a little consistency in the sea of chaos we love to call home.

Just Over the River has a black door that looks much like I suspect ours will turn out. Check out that incredible squirrel door knocker in NC for $8. I think she needs to send it back to NC. . . to me and my squirrel lovin' Wolfie, right? Add some vintage repro door hardware and call me surprised, we sure would have a fancy lookin' entry!

But more exciting than the actual door will be hanging up a Christmas wreath. Like maybe something fantastically compiled by The Constant Gatherer? Or a yarn wreath by Knock Knocking? Maybe the new door is just the excuse I need to get a succulent wreath like this one from Succulents Galore? A vintage tinsel one like the one from Oodles??

Who can resist all the lovely handmade choices? They're all so a-door-able! (Yes, that pun was unavoidable. And yes, I'm so sorry.)

Go for it, girl! I considered painting our front door black too, but we ended up going with red. It definitely stands out and I kind of wish we went with black. Oh well. Can't wait to see your results.

Those wreaths are all very lovely -- but not nearly so nice as the one you helped me make (read: you did the hard part while I looked on cluelessly) a few years ago! It's still my favorite Christmas decoration ... and I still smile when I think of the caffeine-induced delirium that set in around midnight. ("Saussy! ... Burbank!")

I'm looking forward to catching up on your blog posts. And I'll keep my eye out for another squirrel knocker.
