door decoration

I gave up waiting for a sunny day, and did the best I could to be a human tripod.

My uncle the florist sent us this wicker door decoration, complete with pine cones and foliage, sometime between 1961 and 1964. We used it off and on for years, renewing the greenery and ribbons as necessary. This is its second year at the new house.


  1. Very classy!

    Funny, so many things from that era look dated,(including me) but that door decoration looks fantastic!

  2. I agree with Crabby (well, except for the part about her looking dated....). That door decoration is fabulous!

  3. (Not dated! Dateable, that's what, she looks dateable.)

    My uncle was a man of taste, all right. The amazing part is that the wicker is still in good shape after more than forty years.

  4. That's just darling! We haven't put up any christmas decorations yet....:-|

  5. Daryl, green is an appropriate color for the season.

    Melissa, I haven't written any Christmas cards yet....
