It feels like winter has returned to us here in the south. After violent storms on Saturday and Sunday, we woke this morning to quite chilly tempertures. Mr. P. had already winterized the fireplace and put the wood back out of the rack, but guess what? We have a fire in the fireplace tonight. AGAIN! Hopefully tomorrow it is suppose to warm back up and more rain and storms the rest of the week. Thats okay, we know warm weather is hiding somewhere around a corner. Come on Spring weather. And take away the Pollen we are so famous for here in the South.
Years later we striped the door down and altho the glass was long broken, I kept the door in the barn. Several years ago, We brought the door upstairs to the guest room. It once again has a loving home. No longer can we go in and out of it, but there are so many memories of that door.
Over 50 years ago,(yes I am getting old) my mother brought me thru that door for the first time in my life . She was a young mother and I am sure she had a smile and a look of pride as she introduced me to a big and loving family that awaited inside. I can remember starring out the glass of the old door on tiptoe waiting for my parents to come in from work. I remember walking thru that door as a young girl to view my grandmother who had passed away. You know back then, they were brought home for viewing. That was an experience I will never forget. Yes, like the stitchery inside the door, what all has that old door seen and heard ? If we only knew. Thought I would share pictures of the old door with you. This room is upstairs and only has a small dormer window. I know it's not prim but we just recently redid it and brightened it up a bit. Hope you enjoy the pictures.
Sorry this one is dark. It's a collection of old vintage hats.
Hope you have enjoyed the tour of my guest room. Next time you go in and out your door, pause a minute and think of the memories your door could tell if it could talk. Old door like old friends are special.
Until next time............
