    hi there!
    my husband and i would LOVE to win this front entrance makeover as our beautiful home is the first house people see as they enter our gorgeous neighborhood. but without the time and expertise to really make our house stand out, we usually do some minor decor for the holidays that is sadly nothing special. if we had a spectacular entrace, it would be a welcome site for our neighbors as they make their way home after a long day at work.

    I would love to win a front entrance makeover~! During the horrible winter of 2011, we had excessive snow (as did EVERYONE in CT!), but ours damaged our front walkway of granite stones, leaving an uneven surface where once was a flat, even entrance. I would also appreciate some help with the front garden plantings; as, alas, my thumb is neither green nor handy… I often say that our home is like the Hospice for plants…they come here to die, but it is not a peaceful, warm death. Here they come to a gasping, panting demise, and that is just not fair. We would love to see what some professionals can do for us! Hope to hear from you soon!

    my little home is so blase and my entrance while blessed with a beautiful 60 yr old door just doesn’t pack any punch. i’d be surprised if you’d be up for the challenge of enhancing my entryway. i live in trumbull, ct. let’s see if you can come up with a solution to the drearies…

    what a wonderful site you have. As a new family with a new home we haven’t had as much time to spruce up our home as we would like. I have been dreaming of a door knocker and kickplate, and some beautiful large planters to spruce up our front door. Please consider me as you are evaluating who to select to win. Our new home is in lovely Glastonbury CT.
