Oh, there is nothing better than a 3 day weekend when a “little” holiday falls on Monday.  You know what kind of holiday I am talking about.  One that does not require loads of planning, preparation or extra commitments.  These 3 day weekends allow us to spend casual time with friends and family and still have a whole “free” day to ourselves.  Perhaps like me, you’ve eaten well, laughed hard and are thinking about what you might be able to “get done” around the house with this glorious free day.  There is also nothing that feels better to me than accomplishing something that has been nagging me but keeps getting pushed back on the To Do List.  So I think I’ll plan a bit of “labor” for this Labor Day.

Houses are full of doors.  Entry doors at the front, side and back of a home welcome everyone into our lives.  Interior doors provide necessary privacy.  Other types of doors cover the less than tidy places in our home.  We use a lot of doors!  Yet, doors can be one of the most overlooked ways to add design to a decor.  Let’s take a look at these examples where the doors are featured and ever so attractive!
