knock knock
who's there? buster. buster who? buster had a cupcake on his head and he smashed it all up.

ok. sorry, i couldn't resist. my son is three and i hear this same joke at least five times a day. every single time he tells it, he thinks it is hilarious. so i just had to share. funny, no?

i posted this picture of my front door to show you what i have done. the door was painted gray when we moved here. but, my house is a farmhouse style and in keeping with farmhouse tradition, i want it to be a knotty pine wooden door. so, i have attempted to make my aluminum door look like wood. i had the house painters paint it brown, then i stained it with walnut polyeurethane. i added a restoration hardware knocker and after all of my hard work...voila...i still hate it. so, now i can't decide what to do, go back to gray? my house is white with gray shutters. i've thought black, white, maybe even a berry color, but you know how i don't like too much "pop." i'm just stumped.

How about a pale pink door? There is a tan house near me with pale pink door and shutters. She has pink and purple flowers all around- it is adorable.

jo,
i love pink and believe me, it has been considered. it also really works with my color scheme, gray, purple and pink...love them together. if my house had a more intimate entrance, i would be all over it. maybe i should post a picture from further away so i you could see, but it is a very expansive entrance and my house is very long with a lot of white space flanking the door so i feel the door really needs to "ground" it. pink would be too delicate i am afraid. but what the heck, maybe i will try it.

Black sounds like a nice option. It has a way of defining spaces and making them appear crisp.
