Dressing up my front door

I will be spending most of this week touring homes in the Parade of Homes.  
I'm so excited. 
 I love to do this every year. 
 But just wanted to do a quick post on the state of my front porch. 
 I purchased this door mat at Walmart for $6 and something cents.  

Then I made a stencil out of card stock with and exact-o-knife.  
(No, I do not have a fancy circuit machine.  It's all by hand here baby.)

I just found images off the Internet and blew them up on a copier.
I love the finished product.  
What cha think?

Next it was time to put up a new wreath.  
So I found this one at DI for $2.

Then I added this welcome sign I got from my sister who was throwing it away.

Last of all I finally got some flowers for my black pots out front.
 They were $8 each on clearance. 
Love them.

So here's how it looks.  
All for $25!!!
I would love to add more, but that will have to wait, 
to many other things needing done now!!!

Thanks for stoping by.
Hope your day is great!
