Entryways, the plot thickens.....

Your entryway, your first impression. What does it reveal about you?  :)  we're travelling to Texas today, to knock on Geeta's door. Does her entry say anything about her? Does it say spunky, fresh? does it tell you that the person who has made this house her home is smart and talented and would probably be the one person in the party able to hold a conversation on many, varied topics? It does, if you look at the clues carefully.............

Geeta, on her front yard: "I love a front yard landscape that is low maintenance and I have a few trees and shrubs that stay all year around."

Stepping up to the door, you're greeted by this little elephant: "A small elephant bell hangs on my door knob and I love to hear the bell ring  every time somebody opens my front door. No way, I would have done this, if I lived in India, where every 10 sec somebody comes over."

LOL! (How true, Geeta, how true!!) and I have to say that I love hearing the sound of my elephant bell too!!

Artwork by her husband's aunt. Pretty sunflowers liven up the console. That lamp looks very interesting!!

Painting on the opposite wall, also made by her husband's aunt. I love it when you have a personal connection with the artwork on your walls, don't you?

Geeta says (and I so hear you on this, Geeta!) that this entryway is often comandeered into a soccer field/tennis court by her kids and husband, but that they do put away the clutter once they're done...that's good to know!! No point having a stressed out mommy/wife, eh?  :) 

Have you visited Geeta at My Cafe Terrace yet? if not, hop on over and say hi! Thanks for inviting us in Geeta!!

Gentle readers, be sure to check back later for more entryways!! And, if you have an entry that may like to see a few more visitors, be sure to send in your pictures!
