Front Porch Welcome Mat

New Front Porch Welcome Mat
- Joy Krauthammer

Purple is my color so this new front porch mat is good. A sunburst or flower; it blends with my fuscia bougainvillea-colored ramp (which I commissioned, painted and installed 8 years ago when my husband, obm, became paralyzed). The pink color matches the fallen flower petals. I shlep my percussion instruments in rolling cases, so I keep the ramp which meets the front door and my needs. I gave another way to an appreciative needy neighbor. 

I purchased the mat this week when finally, the many plumbers and plasterers left my premises, after a nasty water pipe burst in my home. I needed a pick-me-up after pools of water were picked up.

I purchased a new mat also for kitchen sink area, after plumbers and plasterers opened up walls in kitchen. It was a mess. They opened up walls in both bathrooms, so I bought new mats for those rooms also, knowing I needed something to cheer me up from the mess and stress.
