Entryway, What's Your Story?

I have been asked to teach a class tonight on Entry Ways.  It took me a little by surprise but I am always up for a challenge!    

"An entryway is an introduction.
Like the opening pages of a book, it leads us in and welcomes us to the world inside."
~Rose Tarlow~

When I was deciding on how I wanted my entry way to be decorated there were a few elements I wanted in cooperated.  As the above quote states your entry way is the first glimpse and sometimes the only glimpse a person gets into your home and I wanted it tell our story.   

First up my family.  I am one of those crazy ladies that always looks like a tourist because I  have a huge camera around my neck.  I have so many pictures I needed lots of area to display them.  My wall tells so much about our family from the pictures to the sayings.  It is the first thing you see when you enter our home!  There is even a missing picture, I am sure one of my girls took off with, even adds more to the story of our home.

Next is this picture of Christ.  My family gave it to Devin and I as our wedding gift.  I have always loved this picture and love the message it offers without words.
Christ is the center of our home, so it was important to me to have it in an area where all could see as a constant reminder.    

Last up in this table full of all the fun things I run all over the place to collect and repurpose!  Everything on this table has some meaning to me and most of the items have a fun story of how or where I found it.

There is a glimpse of "our world inside" told at our front door!
