White Wednesday: An Old White Door

Posted by Picasa

Doors can welcome you in, as well as lock you out. I like to think of each door as a passage to the past as well as the future. This old white door beckoned to me, inviting me into a room with the feel and fragrance of many old souls. With my hand on the ancient rusty knob, I allowed myself the pure luxury of imagining others who had felt the old doorknob in their hands; of those that had been there long before I happened upon its stone stoop.

White Wednesday is hosted by Faded Charm Cottage, where you'll find links to wonderful white stuff.


  1. Hmmmm, beautiful in sentiment and literally.

  2. It's beautiful. They don't make them solid like this anymore and I love the layers of paint on it.

  3. Old doors can be re-purposed and used on new built-in closets or on bookshelves. They look great and add a sense of history to any room.

  4. Oh! Annie, what a delightful post! You have really got my wheels turning along with all the knobs that open up the past and present worlds to us! Thanks so much!
