I hosted some dear pals from New York City this weekend. One of them admired the woven nylon rope doormats I have outside my home. They're called Cape Cod Doormats. Original, right? You find them in all the hardware stores and home centers on the Cape, but you can also find them online, at capecoddoormats.com.
Along with onion globe lamps, blue hydrangeas and weathered cedar shingles, Cape Cod doormats last years and years, and are "required" for a true Cape Cod look for your home.
To see how these mats are made, by hand, one at a time, right here in Hyannis, check out this video by WCVB-TV's Chronicle.
