Last year I arranged a door decoration with pine cones, a jeweled dragon fly, and the word "Wicked." I posted about that arrangement here.
It was fine, but a little hard to attach to the door in a way that kept it from leaning forward.
I ended up moving it inside the porch next to the kitchen door. Still it was a bit of a pain to get it to hang right.
This year I decided to use it again a little differently.
I used a grapevine wreath for the base and transferred all the other parts to the wreath. I added a black bow (looks navy here) to pick up the black outline around the letters. It does the job although you would never be able to know that by this picture. I guess the reflection on the glass was just fading everything else out.
Maybe it was just the wrong time of day to snap these pictures. I think I'll break here and take a few more to see if time of day makes a difference.
Here is a closeup with the door wide open and taken from inside the house. (still some reflection of foliage from the outside)
Details show up a little better this way.
But, not that much of a difference. Some things just don't photograph well....or is it just lack of skill with the camera. I really need to drag that manual out and try again to get past the auto setting.
My blog is focused on what I saw, heard about, or encountered during my day. I ZOOM IN on things I find particularly interesting, beautiful, or humorous. My interests overlap and mesh in the fields of interior design, rehab, photography, architecture, color, and anything painted. Throw in salvage, bargain hunting, recycling and that summarizes what you are likely to find on this page.
