Joy. Introduced to our casa…early this year.

IMG_4301

I ordered my decal from Tasty Suite

and stuck it smack dab in the middle

of our door…

then surrounded it with a homemade a little of this a bit of that tropical wreath.

Joy. is just the exclamation mark this wreath needs wants.

And hopefully reminds us…and those that walk in to our home

that…

When you wish someone joy…you wish them

peace

prosperity

happiness…and all good things

I'm really inspired. For some reason this just struck a chord with me. Sometimes you just have to spell things out to remind people what to focus on. I'm on it..........thanks!

Great wreath..........I also live in Florida and it's a little hard to get into the Christmas spirit with it being so warm here. I do love our weather though!

what a lovely tropical wreath! you just gave me an idea, yippee I think I will add some beachy love to my wreath now. I agree with the others never too early to spread some joy.

happy monday.

Maya @ Completely Coastal said...

I'm trying to stay joyful..., even though I'm fighting off a redirect virus my PC caught! Also Linda, if you don't mind, would you please change the blogroll link..., and list my site Completely Coastal instead of Coastal Style Living (the update doesn't work on that blog, and it's only the sidekick to CC too). Thank you so much!!

Happy season beginning!
