Hello Everyone!  I had some “time” today so I thought I would make a new wreath for the inside of our front door. 


And while I was at it,  I removed the vinyl decal on the front door that I made sometime ago with my Cricut  that said “Bless Our Nest” and made a new one that says “ Est. 2002” and applied it.


I didn’t just stop there.   I also made a little wooden sign that says ANTIQUES for the mantel shelf in the family room. 


Again, I used my Cricut to make an “ANTIQUES” stencil.


I made another sign for the kitchen that said “Bakery” but unfortunately I wasn’t able to take a good picture of it today.  That will be another post. 

Don’t you just love little projects that take no time at all to make.  I know I sure do! 

As always, thanks for your visit and leaving such sweet comments.  They are always appreciated.

  1. Wow, Gail, it sounds like you were a Cricut, sign making, whirlwind today! : ) Love the signage on your front door. I would love to do that but I don't know if the HOA allows it. Everyone has the same color front door, so I am doubting it. Maybe I'll do a "Welcome Home" on the interior garage door. I love simple projects; they are quick and make me feel like I accomplished something!

  2. I LOVE IT Gail and love your pretty mantel too!!

  3. You have been busy. It must be the spring weather we are having.
    Love the little antique sign. I made one as well for my family room.
    That's another post. Your front door looks amazing.
    Congrats on the preliminary on Whisperwood .

  4. I need to get my Cricut out and start using it! I keep saying that and then don't! My list is so long, and what I need to do is what you do - just do it! You have projects to show us all the time, big ones, small ones - You just get things done.

    Thanks for sharing with us today. I love your signs you put up. And, glad to see there's someone else who hangs a wreath on the inside of the door!


  5. Wow! You are so creative! I love the wreath and the adorable sign but I've just seen that amazingly fantastic mirror on the previous post and am just blown away! What a beautiful idea! I also love the wreath on the inside of the door and the cute as well. You have so many wonderful ideas, thanks so much for sharing them!

  6. I just love any project you do. Will you please make something that looks like crap so I can quit adding your ideas to my to do list?


  7. I so need you to come to my house! Just told hubby today we needed a new wreath on the side porch. I have so many projects I want to get done but don't really know where to start! You have great taste.

  8. You must have read my mind! I was just thinking about a new Spring wreath for my front door. Your wreath looks so pretty! I love the signs you made too.

  9. Beautiful, Gail! Lovely blog, I'm a new follower!

  11. Love those signs Gail, you are the queen of putting things together! Love the mantel and that wreath I have to try something like that for the inside of my door:)

  12. The wreath is lovely, Gail.

  13. Your wreath and new decal you made look very cute on your door. I've never tried a cricut before. I've seen them at Hobby Lobby though. I like how you styled your shelf too. That's such a great combination of eye candy!

  14. Hello Gail! Love your new wreath for the door and your new HOME est 2002.
    What a wonderful idea! Love the new antique sign you made also. Just the perfect touch for your mantle. Enjoy your day!!!

  19. Love your creations, Gail! You are in a creative mood! Love how you used the burlap on the wreath!

  20. I so love your shelf and all that is on it, specially the clock.
    I also love the burlap on the wreath, one of my favorite items in the world.
    Thanks for sharing.

  21. Oh my this is lovely!

    Happy day, happy spring, happy happy everything!

  22. Very pretty Gail!~ I need to make a new wreath for my pantry too. The coffee filter one looked pretty in the winter, but now it is time for a spring summer change.

  23. Love it all, Gail! The wreath looks wonderful on your front door ... and, your new sign is the perfect addition to your amazing vignette!

  24. Your mantel shelf is gorgeous! I love the way you put your vignettes together, you do it so well. I love your little "antiques" sign, it very nice!
    Hugs, Cindy
