|My House: Vivid Colors, |
Overabundant Mums and Impatiens,
a Fall Wreath, and a Big Pumpkin.
What does this say about Me?
People in the Maine are anxious to celebrate the transition from summer to autumn by decorating the outside of their houses with the familiar images of the season: fall wreaths; pumpkins; gourds; mums; and Halloween props. For me, the fall is an opportunity to add a little punch to the entryway, and it also helps chase away the autumn blues that accompany the shorter days.
How we chose to decorate our entryways reflects our personalities and how we want the world to see us. Show me your entryway and I can tell you what you are.
Here are some houses I found in the West End. What do these homes tell you about the occupants?
