I really want this year to be festive .... Not sure why but I need to get out my mommy slump - I am so tired and have been having a lot of pain for various reasons.... I want my home to say Harvest Blessings all over it!!!

That looks like so much fun! =]

Good idea!
I have a Christmas wreath and 'one all year wreath'
Maybe I could do something with the 'all year wreath' and make it more fall inspired! =]

We have really never done a Fall wreath for the front door. My problem that I have is finding a wreath that will fit between the inside door and the storm door, without getting that squished look after awhile or you put a wreath up and you cannot get the storm door to close...

Sort of found this out the hard way for the Christmas wreaths that we were buying, they would look great in the store but once we got them home and hung on the door, shutting the door and keeping the wreaths looking nice, just wasn't happening....


This year, since I have the time now... is to find a Fall/ thanksgiving wreath that will fit and I will take my tape measure with me to the store.....

You want to hear something funny, my mother-in-law put her full size wreath up on the outside door in the spring and a robin built a nest in it. The funny part was that she couldn't use the door at all for over a month in fear of the mother would abandon the babies in the nest.....

My Mom had the same thing happen to her a few years ago. They used their back door until the birds were gone!
