Spring Door Decor to Adore!

Have you been inspired by the creative spring wreaths out there in blogland?  I certainly have.  Since I am still the proud owner of a cast on my arm and will be for another three weeks, I can only dream of the day when I can make one of these lovely creations.  Let's take a look at some of my favorites.   This one caught my eye immediately.  I think it is so cute and goes along with spring showers.  Visit Eclectically Vintage to get the low down on this cute door decor!

This one is just plain ole sweet! I think I am going to say this to my husband today! Here is one from long ago.  She doesn't seem to have a problem with insecurity or is it the sender who is sure of himself? Here is one for our aerospace engineering son!  He was always wanting to make an "airoplane" when he was little! Our youngest son loved "dally" dogs when he was little and had an extensive collection of stuffe

Hoilday Decorating Identity Disorder

I have diagnosed myself with HDID, technically known as Holiday Decorating Identity Disorder.  I am a psychometrist and a counselor on top of that, so I can legally diagnose myself.  I just don't do family and friends!  You may ask, what is Holiday Decorating Identity Disorder?  I must say that this disorder is a geographical one and I made it up!  My blogging friends north of Hattiesburg, MS won't understand this troubling disorder.  Typically, we decorate for one holiday then move on to another.  Oh no, not in the deep south.  Once the Christmas trees disappear from the stores, up comes Valentines Day decorations alongside the purples, greens, and golds that proclaim Mardi Gras.  Now, the question is do I want to stick with the pinks and reds for Valentine's Day or celebrate the exuberant Mardi Gras?  OR, what if I do both?  Will my home look like a seasonal store with a stomach virus?  Will I look like I can't make up mind?  Do I truly have HDID?  After many sleeples
