i don't know about you, but it's my experience that a lot of rentals feel like cookie-cutter living. even now, we're in a rowhouse in baltimore that's probably 100+ yrs old, but it sits on a block where all the houses are the same.
sometimes that makes me feel less like i live in a home and more like i live in a hotel. of course it doesn't help that i travel a lot for work and hotel rooms are definitely a cookie-cutter situation. when i come home, i want it to feel like the exact opposite end of the spectrum. special. unique. custom for me. and a small way that i achieve that is by slapping a wreath on our front door.
maybe it's an animal instinct, to mark my territory or something like that. and it's definitely not the kind of wreath you'd find pre-fab at michael's, which is what makes me happy about it. it is different and spunky and reflective of the life that goes on behind this door. it's a small way that i can demonstrate that while our floorplans may be the same, my home is mine.
and wreaths are so easy to whip up. within the past year, i've made 3 other ones...
having a few different wreaths gives me options to change things up if i want, too. a little front-door versatility, if you will :)
what do you think?? are you a wreath fan?? do you have a favorite type of wreath you've made that really expresses you??
