      Me too! When she was making over that home, I was forcing my husband to read all those posts since she was so awesome about sharing how to execute! Thanks for reading!

    Michele, I love your first doormat. So funny. Sounds like something I’d like to say sometimes. However… I have clients coming to my home, so No Can Do right now.

    Liked those industrial shelves. Can I mix those with β€œWilliamsburg”?…..Nah….The doormat made me laugh out loud. Might exchange Ryan Gosling for Paul McCartney, circa 1964. The cute one. They were all cute, right? I miss those guys. Am I way off subject? Sorry. Great post.

      Thanks for reading even when it’s not yer cup of tea, friend! πŸ™‚ Yes – let’s create a custom mat and sub Paul McCartney for Ryan! I love him too! Would love to meet the cute one. πŸ™‚

        I saw the door mat and thought “Huh, now THAT is funny!” I would use it myself. πŸ™‚ Our house is ready for visitors probably 95% of the time but I do not like unexpected company — cuz I work from home.

        As to unexpected people (i.e. solicitors, etc.) well, if I’m not expecting them, the door never opens for them! As I explained to a guy trying to sell us a security system: “Oh yes, we DO have a security system. It’s called 3 Dog Night and Smith & Wesson.” He said, ‘Huh?? I’m not familiar with that brand” accompanied by a quizzical look on his face. I told him, “Go home and think about it!” LOL! (We have 3 dogs who earn their keep very well as companions and alert dogs and…welllllll you can figure out the rest. πŸ˜‰ )
