~Unexpected Inspiration

Let's hear it ~ I have finally quit pinning
and completed a project!
My Inspiration was gained from this source
on Pinterest.

I love the old antique umbrella,
but I did not go on the hunt for one with a wooden handle.
The one I found for $5.84 from Dollar General
gives the same effect.




I added tulips, morning glories and hydrangeas.
Most of the items I already had on hand.


The eggs were wired and added for a touch of fun!


Just never know what unexpected welcome
you might get at our front door.


But, one thing for certain I love to make
 our guests feel welcome.

Joining the others for
Inspiration Friday.

I absolutely love this! I want to do this too! I was just lamenting the need for a good wreath for the door. This is far better.
