Monday At Home

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.
Proverbs 14:1

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.

Valentine’s is just around the corner.  I made a couple of quick wreaths today.  I wasn’t able to find any cute Valentine items for a wreath, so I used what I had in my craft closet.  Not too thrilled with the outcome, but it will do for a couple of weeks.  I have double doors, so I always make or purchase two for each season.

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.) 🙂

  1. You have such a lovely home! I loved all your Easter pretties too….so cute! I love your blog! Thank you so much for the follow on mine!

    Have a wonderful day!
    Blessings to you!

  2. I live in North Texas and my door is the same way. I go out regularly and dust the door. Then I clean the wood with Pledge. Don’t know if that’s the right thing to do or not, but it sure looks prettier.
