Our entryway is a small space and I like to keep it as functional as possible. I simply added a fall wreath to the chalkboard and left the "welcome" there. Sometimes, I am just don't have the time to create new chalk art and I have learned that this is an easy remedy for that.
The entryway is separated from our family room with 2 glass french doors. These doors were an after thought when we built our family room and they have turned out to be a very useful addition to this space. They keep our dogs contained when necessary. They are also useful for keeping the house cool in the summer and warm in the winter. There is so much energy loss in a split level and these help a bit with that.
I added a small bunch of sunflowers to the split log "basket" that I got from Joss & Main last Christmas. And I keep my boots at the ready for walking the dogs and to gather items to use as decoration in the home at this time of year. Things like branches of pretty colored leaves and hydrangeas to dry. As you can see from their wear and tear, these boots aren't just blog props. :)
Dax is waiting at the top of the stairs to welcome you in for the rest of our fall home tour. I hope you'll stop back to see more!
