Special Touches


Richella from Imparting Grace is hosting her first party today and I’m happy to join in the fun.

I like to dress up our entrances with wreaths and flowers. IMG_0662 




Decorating seasonally gives me great pleasure.  When visitors come, things are usually arranged a bit differently from their previous visit.



I enjoy arranging flowers from my yard.


I’d love to go on but it is time for another school day to begin.  I am looking forward to visiting Richella’s party participants tonight and over the weekend.


  1. Enjoyed your pics!!

    I love a welcoming front door. Very nice.

  3. Richella says:

    I love your idea of changing the decorations around your front door. I always do something special for fall and something special for Christmas, but otherwise I tend to get in a rut. What a good idea just to change things up a little bit, like the flags in the planters!

    I love the way you added pansies around the base of that vase as well as in the vase. Little things like that are definitely special touches.

    Thank you SO much for joining my party! I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

    Paula, I love how you change your decor seasonally! You have such a flair for decorating with flowers. I bet a visit to your house is a real treat. I love the “lemon” looking wreath. 🙂 Visiting from Richella’s today. 🙂

    Visiting from Richella’s party! I love your wreaths! So pretty! I wish I was better about changing things up, it seems like once I find something I like I leave it forever!

  11. Aren’t holidays the best motivation for adding special touches? I love your welcoming front door. I am new to this blogging–just several weeks into it. I’d welcome a visit and any suggestions! graciousinteriors.blogspot.com
