Welcome

A front door greets all guests arriving to a person's home, therefore one of the first things I did when I moved to my new house is paint the door red. In Feng Shui a red door is believed to bring good luck, which is something I value.

I hung a metal wreath (auspicious because it won't die on me!) that I had found in a fabulous store in Olema, CA called Vita Collage. It is a wonder of inspiration and I knew the wreath on their door had to be the wreath on mine. When I asked the saleslady if it was for sale she said, "Of course" and I said, "I'll take it".

It makes me so happy when I enter my house to see my pretty wreath and bright red door. Hopefully everyone else feels the same!
