Switching Wreaths!

This wreath is one that was on my front door for the past couple of years.
I hung it on the door this year to begin with, but it is so big and seems to always be in the way when we are going in and out the front door. So, I placed it on top of the piano. Behind it is the frame I bought at the thrift shop several months ago. I still haven't done anything with this frame!

And here's the front door now...with a simple wreath with lights added. It shows up much prettier at night than the other one even though it is very plain. I hung a red berry ball in the center to dress it up a little. The wreath seems to 'fit' the cottage look of our house! I have enough wreaths to go across the four windows too...just haven't gotten that done yet. Riding around and looking at Christmas decorations gave me another idea-one house that had an oval glass like ours had the glass outlined with garland with lights. It won't happen this year I don't think, but I may try it out next year!
Thanks for stopping by!

The lighted wreath is very pretty...so was the other one but if it was getting in the way...then it's home on the piano seems like a great idea!

Your wreaths are lovely but how does the lighted door one work? I am trying to figure out a way.

I like the look of your door with the lighted wreath. It's very pretty. I also like the wreath on your piano. Your house must be so beautiful all decorated for the holidays.

How many more days of school do you have? We go until the 23rd.

take care,
Dawn
