Keep the Door Open {Screen Porch}

This is quite possibly the best weather DC has ever seen in July and August.  A perfect 78-83 degrees with no humidity - no joke.  My Maine-weather-loving friends would not believe me if they were not here to experience it themselves.  For the past 2 weeks, Handy Hubby and I have been saying "Can you believe this weather?" no fewer than 3 times a day.  One morning I went out for a run and barely broke a sweat - not because I am in awesome shape (I'm not) but because it's actually COOL in the morning.

I love keeping the windows and doors open in this weather.  Of course, the weather has come with a nice breeze - thus causing said doors to slam shut at any given moment!  We have been known to use shoes, small trash cans, and toys as doorstops, but we have never had an official doorstop.  When UncommonGoods offered me this rope door stop from their home decor collection, I just could not say no! (See more of their great home decor items here).

When it arrived, I used it right away to hold our screen porch door open while we ate dinner out there.  It worked perfectly - I love the nautical look and it is genuinely heavy - perfect for holding an outside door open. 

I love that it has a large "handle" that makes it easy to grab and move, or I just roll it with my foot to get it out of the way.

This would make a perfect housewarming or hostess gift.  They have a lot of great gifts under $50 (check them out here).  I also love a lot of their wall art pieces here.  I'm sure I'll be back to do some more shopping in the future!
