For those of us who are staying home due to the COVID-19 situation, the days can be long, and at times, stressful. Over the last week, I’ve had many moments where I felt fear and helplessness. I know these feelings are normal, but nevertheless, they were disturbing. I decided I needed a plan to stay busy, and occupy my mind. My days are usually busy anyway, and I’m used to working from home…but this felt very different.

Just email me at ann@onsuttonplace.com. 

When the news gets to be too much, please come here. Take a few minutes away from the worry, and refresh your mind with easy inspiration. Grant yourself grace, and take the time for yourself.

  1. I agree with you that this spring seems worse last year. Sooo I decided to paint my whole house – even bathroom and kitchen cabinets!! I’m so very physically tired I don’t have time for the mental worries. Maybe by the time I finish everyone will have been vaccinated and I can enjoy entertaining in a fresh house.💗

    Ann, I love that yellow wreath. I have one too. But I need some advice: How do you keep the birds out of it? Just as soon as I put my wreath on the door, or my door box full of artificial flowers, the birds sit there and if you are not paying attention, they fly in the house. My son told me that I could not hang any thing on the door. Two bird flew in at him and scared him to death.

  3. Thank you for your upbeat post Ann! I am sure that this Spring will be brighter this year after all this crazy weather and with the hope of getting ahead of covid! I had forgotten that I made a copy of your forsythia wreath last year. I need to get it hung up as it is so cheery looking! Thanks for being a bright light in our lives!

  4. Thanks for your ongoing inspiration Ann !
    This past year has been so hard on a lot of people but we all have the privilege of making someone else’s journey a little more special ; you continue to do this on a daily basis Ann !
    God bless !

  5. Love, love, love your blue door and all the wreaths!! Ann, I painted my front door and shutters a similar blue color last year and now am in need of planters. I noticed yours and love them! Are they black or blue (the ones with the ferns). I also noticed taller planters in another pic……do you know where I can find them?
    Thanks and be well…..

    Well said Ann. Lovely wreaths. Stay safe & be positive.

  7. Thank you Ann for continuing to post and brighten our day. 😊💐

    Love your blue front door! Blue is supposed to be “the” color right now. Thanks for your posts.

  9. I love your wreath ideas. I have a problem with my Security Screen Door, however. I have not found a gizmo to hold wreaths in place securely. I am using heavy-duty magnets with hooks but if the door happens to slam, there goes the wreath. Have you heard of a solution to the Security door problem? I have searched for hangers for this type of door but haven’t found anything. The SSdoor is much narrower than a wooden door so the regular hanger doesn’t work. Any ideas gladly accepted!

    1. Ann Drake says:

      Hi! I found this suggestion online: “take a Command hook/hanger. Hang it upside down on the inside, center top of your screen door. So, the hook will be on the inside of the door. The wreath is hung from a matching ribbon, with the ribbon being securely tied/knotted at the end. Hook the knotted end of the ribbon on the Command hook, and hang the wreath over the screen door.” This sounds like it might work!

      1. Linda Wright says:

        Do you think this idea would help us living in the country dealing with wind? My wreath swings and scratches the glass.
        I also have the bird issue building a nest in my wreath.

    Your blog is such a blessing to me and I look forward to it so much, especially during these times. God’s Blessings to you

  11. Thank you Ann. I agree, keeping busy is the key right now to social distancing. Having crafts to work on, books to read, music to sooth the soul and keeping in touch with loved ones thru social media are all good thing. I look forward to checking your web site more often for inspiration. Stay safe, stay healthy…

  12. So wonderful to have this refreshing distraction! Thank you! Love the Beautiful wreaths! Trusting God to bring us all through this time! 🙏🏻😊

  13. Ann…love all the wreathes. I have a screen door on from spring through fall. Hoping to find a way to make something similar so it fits in the space. Thanks for keeping your blog active during this time of uncertainty. It is so calming to read. Stay safe and healthy.

  14. Patricia Wick says:

    Thanks for all the inspiration. Stay safe and well.

  15. LORRI RAUSCHER says:

    Thank you for your reassuring thoughts. Very well said ❤.
    Ann, I have made your first two wreaths and they turned out lovely.
    I think I am going to make the fern one because I am going to put ferns in my urns again this year . They were glorious last year. Just a suggestion..your pictures of your front look most lovely when you get the whole door, rather a sideways view. That way we can see your lovely wreaths on the door full view. Love them either way. Be safe😍

  16. Jan Hamilton says:

    You Summer’s Eve Grapevine Wreath is so pretty! Thank you for sharing it!

  17. Ann,
    Thank you for continuing to brighten our days with your inspirations and beauty.
    I am new to the website and emails and just have to ask…..What is the color of your door. I love it!! My current front door is painted deep red and we are getting our siding and roofing replaced this spring and think the color of your beautiful front door may be the perfect color to go with our choices.
    Again, thank you for brightening our day with your beautiful crafts and recipes.
    Stay Well <3

      1. It is beautiful and I agree, the perfect blue! Thank you so much and God Bless.

  18. Sue Daugherty says:

    Your blog is a breath of fresh air. Thank you for continuing to do what you do and for being the blessing that you are.

  19. My husband and I are completely staying at home…no contact with anyone. It’s difficult, especially not being able to see our family. We’ve found that staying busy on projects is really helping. You know, all those things around the house that you never have time to do? It’s catchup time. We’ve made birdhouses, carved out planting beds, power washed the house…and building a scrap wood potting table is next. This is situation that none of us have had to deal with before. Mental attitude is everything. We can’t change it, but we can’t let it get the best of us…stay strong and stay safe. Anne, your wreaths are all very pretty on your front door. Could you tell me what color the paint is on your door? It seems to be the perfect shade of blue. And, I seem to have the time to paint mine.

    1. Ann Drake says:

      Hi Barb…I’m sorry for the delay in answering. This question slipped through the cracks! The door color is Naval from Sherwin Williams in a satin finish. Stay well and safe!

  20. Thank you for the inspiring post. Together we will all get thru this life changing time.

    Thanks for the reminders to seek grace at these stressful times. I love the new printable and am going to get it up today!

  22. Linda Charlton says:

    First of all, I love your blog. Your decorating ideas are right up my ally, traditional yet up to date. I always love your ideas. Thanks for being there.

  23. Lauri Leeper says:

    I love the picture of the “Spring Door Basket.” I can see the entire wreath with the door opening inward. Please keep taking a picture from this perspective for all of your wreaths. It really make is so much easier to visualize it on my door.
    Thanks!

  24. Great ideas to deal with staying close to home. I checked Michael’s and Hobby Lobby websites and they are open and HL is offering free shipping for a while. But, call to make sure your local store is open. A lot of places are changing hours.

    Things I am doing – checking the local restaurants for their “isolation menus” and curbside options. I’ll enjoy getting something different every couple days. And going out for a short drive to see spring emerge is healthy for me mentally. I’m also stepping up the spring cleaning and decluttering. Our community has some charities that will schedule pickups. So, I have a deadline. It’s too early for outside planting, but I’m going to start some pots to grow some micro greens and herbs. But, I can always start planning and looking through catalogs cheers the soul. And, I am reducing tv viewing and certain websites to decrease stress.

    I’m writing a daily journal to record my temperature, blood pressure, O2 (once I get that pulse oximeter), weight, food and liquid intake, travel activity, and notes on my general activity – how I am feeling mentally & physically. My doctor liked the idea since if I start feeling bad, I can tell her something other than” I feel lousy”. AND, my temp is usually in the 96.5 to 97.5 range, not 98.6, so having a fever is a different number for me. Recording weight and intake will help to ensure that I don’t overeat during this time. Knowing my O2 level will help my doctor figure if I am developing any breathing issues. Many smaller practices are increasing telemed, phone, and email consults.

  25. I have spent the past week with my husband who has been in the hospital.All that is going on just adds to the stress.Thank goodness we have sunshine and warm temperatures everyday.I look forward to reading your blog and seeing your beautiful home, loving all the looks on your front doors.

    1. I love your spring wreaths.. just looking at them makes me smile.😊 In fact I have your 1st two wreaths shown.. love them. I am looking for a basket shape to make one of those wreaths that has flowers flowing out of them. Ah Spring..cant come soon enough.. 😍

  26. Karen L . says:

    THANK YOU ANN for this post. We also have felt “different”, even though most days my husband and I (retired) are at home….the idea of going out and catching the invisible enemy is scary , to say the least. So I was thinking of all the people who are out there risking themselves for our benefit, so I decided to put outside our front door a large sign THANKING All the delivery people and trucking and mail delivery folks who come to our door…..without them …..where would we be if we can’t get to the stores?

  27. Sheri House says:

    Thank you Ann for providing a useful way to stay busy and a gentle reminder to have grace.

  28. Thank you for your gift of self, stay well!

  29. I am finding that busy hands keep me relaxed during this time. Every day I work on a “project”. It might be something as small as washing interior windows, vacuuming our basement, reorganizing makeup, or cleaning my undersink cabinet, decorating our mantel for spring, doing a nice manicure or facial, baking chocolate chip cookies, etc. I have my husband helping out. He just washed our large front porch. It got him outside for a couple of hours and it looks beautiful. I just hung a new spring wreath. I had been out previously collecting a couple of new items, but I disassembled an older very large grapevine wreath to use as my base. I then “curated” some items from older wreaths. It turned out beautifully, and I didn’t have to leave the house to do it. Even though it is still only in the 20’s a lot of days here in the NE, and no one is coming to our house due to the social distancing, I am going to put my spring outdoor rug out on the porch, as well as put out my pillows on our rockers that my husband just washed. Simple things to give us pleasure and a real lift. I’m am looking on line to purchase some new outdoor pillows for our deck seating area. I am also dreaming of planting a ton of flowers around our patio where we will be spending a lot of time this summer. Just little things. Keep looking forward and thinking positive – this will pass – in time.

    Ann, this post is just what I needed today. I will look forward to your messages each day and I thank you. I am trying to find the purpose that God has in this for me and for all of us. Stay well!

  31. Sandi In the south says:

    Ann. I’m not sure you realize how God uses you and all your inspiration. You share so much to all of us Many who are homebound now can look at your blog and feel better. By keeping busy and sharing with others it will help us all get through this time. We are a blessed nation and need to know that and be grateful for that blessing.

    The wreaths are great ideas and now that it’s spring time to help make things pretty

    Thanks and so glad I found you. It’s been several years and I’m always thrilled when I get your em
