No, Ma'am. Me No Mesh Person.

I'm making baby steps, trying to turn this apartment into a home. Since our household goods are FINALLY in NY, I hope we will get them in about 2-3 weeks. Latest. Prayers are more than welcome at this point.
By the way: still no Black Baby (= our car) in front of the house, yet. Waiting sucks.

I love decorating, so one of my first projects was trying to make the front door and entry area outside a little more welcoming. What helps doing that? A door wreath!


Geez. I know I am very European when it comes to certain things. But what the heck is up with all this tons of fluffy puffy mesh wreaths???? This is a home, and not a ballet school! Did you every try googling "door wreath"? Or tried searching it on Etsy?

Mesh. Mesh. Mesh. 


If it's not mesh, we are easily talking big bucks here: I don't feel like spending more than $150 dollars on a door wreath. Sorry. 

But the biggest issue in the buying process is still: I am no mesh person. At all. 

So the project "door wreath" suddenly got a little more complicated than I thought it would be.

After browsing, and googling, and checking out local stores... I finally gave up.  Means: I gave Amazon a shot.

Et voila! Found one:



I saw it and fell in love with it right away. It's simple, CLEAN, and multi-functional, since it came with hangers for all different holidays and seasons throughout the year. And of course it somehow suits our cool little beat-up red front door!




What's hanging on your front door? And I'm not gonna blame you for any mesh ;o)!
When in Rome, do as Romans do just didn't work for me this time.

Happy Monday!

  3. We actually don't have anything on our front door. I have been wondering what is up with all the door wreaths trends lately. I like in OK, USA in a cute neighborhood where people have different ones for every month. Us however, not so much.
