Now that spring is somewhat here (though with snow still on the ground, it seems like it’s not ever going to get warm) I have been thinking of ways to spruce up my front porch for the summer and I’m seriously considering a personalized doormat and some other nice little touches. I figure it as home improvement, so the cupboard tin money I save is sort of an investment.
A friend told me that if I ever wanted anything from mail boxes to sundials to look at Whitehall mailboxes and on the site I would find just about anything I’d like to dress up my yard and porch. The good part is, the items I want are in my budget and price range, so that helps a great deal and hey…I can buy more pretty things that I want!
I’d really like to have customized personal address plaques. My address is on the mail box post, but in my opinion, it’s hard to see in the dark. I could install the plaque right under the porch light that is above the door bell on the side of the front door. That way with the light on, the address would be visible from the road. I think that with the plaque being customized, it would add a certain charm and a bit of class to a porch. I’ve got a lot more ideas for the front gardens and the porch/deck so I’m looking forward to ordering and receiving the neat things that will make a person feel welcome!
