Making My House a Home!
Monday’s are usually set aside for staying home and taking care of details. Details such as cleaning house, getting the house organized for the week, catching up on decorating projects and anything else that will help make the week run smoothly.
The wise woman builds her house,
but the foolish pulls it down with her hands.
I take this verse seriously and I take homemaking seriously. I love my home and I want my family and friends to love my home as well.
Let’s begin at the front door. (Next week we will go into the entry.)
Your front door is the first impression of inside your home.
You will want to make sure your front door is clean; wood dusted, windows clean, porch swept, nice mat and most importantly… the door bell is clean.
When guests ring your door bell, you want it to be clean and not smudged with grime and dirt. Have you ever walked up to someones door and you were afraid to touch the doorbell because it was so dirty? You don’t want that at your house, so get some cleaner and give it a swipe on a regular basis. It only takes a second.
|In West Texas, it is a full time job to keep iron doors clean. The dirt blows on a regular basis and with all the scrolls on our door, it is a job.|
|The doorbell. Such a little thing and only takes a second to make sure it is clean for guests.|
|Make sure door mat is in good shape and clean. I found this mat at Frontgate.|
See you next Monday in the entry way! (or foyer as some may say.) 🙂
