Do You Have a Welcome Mat?

A welcome mat can add personality to the most mundane, run-of-the-mill exterior. It's inviting, and if you have a monogrammed mat, it's a great way to signal to your guests that you live there. Do you have one?Source

I've got a mat that has a gorgeous cherry blossom design on it. It sits outside my flat door in the hallway. Who says mats need to be outside or when you first walk in?

When you step into my apartment there is a mat, but it doesn't say welcome. My grandmother buys new mats all the time once they start to look dirty, but I think we did have a welcome mat before. We just have the mat there so that when it rains or it snows people can wipe their feet.

LOL kimdangirl, I love your "welcome" mat message, so funny! I don't have a mat yet but I need to get one.

yes I have a welcome mat and replace them frequently. My current one, which I love says, "Beware (in a dog bone) dog can't control his licker." I love it because it perfectly describes my boys and makes everyone laugh when they come to our house

Mine has "ask not for whom the dog barks...it barks for thee" on it. It was given to us (me and my parents) one Christmas. We have a poodle who barks all the time lol.

I have one from uncommongoods that has all kinds of animal footprints and it says "The feet you may meet." It's totally perfect for me!

I live in a French Creole Cottage that has two front doors, so I have two welcome mats.
