How do you lay out the welcome mat?

What does your entryway say about you....To paraphrase a  common commercial.."what's in on your wallet door/entrance/porch?" I had put this question to a few of my blogger pals, and I'm glad I did! Look at what I discovered.................

Anu of "My dream canvas" has a sweet yellow terracotta bird & chime to greet her guests.....

Sanghamitra from "Rainbow-the colors of India" has some tribal masks and traditional brass lamps gracing her entrance.........

Kamini's Veranda...lovingly put together with a multitude of green plants, lovely hanging lamps, lanterns, bells and birds...her walls are adorned with folk art....That's what I call an entrance...when can I drop in Kamini? If you missed her home tour earlier, here is the link...

What's on my door?..........

There are a few other blogger friends who are in the process of getting their pictures across to me...if you have any you would like to share, please do send them in......let's inspire each other! Stay tuned for part two of the "welcome" series.....
