Two is better than one

My spring wreath is kinda unspringy. it's isn't pastel. there are no eggs. i wanted it to be able to do double duty, b/c what do you do for a summer wreath? Add flip flops? Last year i was able to see what flowers and bushes bloomed and what colors would look good. The two dogwood trees have white flowers, i ordered red geraniums from a nonprofit fundraiser, and there are various yellow flowers in the summer, not to mention the daffodils doin' their thing now.

Here's a close up. The door is the original that was here, we just repainted it two toned and added more modern hardware.

i really like the way it turned out. I wish it let in a bit more light, so one day we might swap this for one with more glass and less door.

It is pretty and bright and beautiful. Spring just needs to convey upbeat and happy to me and your wreath certainly does. Love the door too.

I love your door, wouldn't change it. Love the wreath too. I love pastels and brights in my quilts, but not in my decorating.

Blessings,

Your wreath is nice and colorful - that is what Spring is all about, adding a little color back into our lives! Great idea on painting the door two colors - looks great. Thanks for linking up to Be Inspired today.

Hi! I'm visiting from DIY day. I think your wreath is very spring-y! I actually just made a Spring wreath using similar colors! Love the door too, the two-tone paint really looks nice.

See, I like your wreath. It's not big and overwhelming and gaudy. Sweet, simple and it shows off the nice arches on the windows. You can't go wrong :)
