I just popped in over at Sov’s blog, Bona Fide Cynic, and I LOVE the door picture she has on the site. Which brings up an odd & interesting point. I have this “thing” for pictures of doors or windows. If I go into a picture shop or a framing store, every single picture I point at and say “ooooooh, I like that” will be a picture of a door, a window, or some sort of entry way – like an arch leading into a garden. I wonder what that says about me? Does it mean that I a curious person? Always wondering what is behind the door? Or that I am seeking new adventures? Or does it just mean I am strange and like pictures of doors & windows?
I don’t like those pictures exclusively – my favorite Paula Vaughan image that I have cross-stitched is a picture of a swing with a quilt … and a path leading to the porch of a Victorian home in the background … with a door and lots of windows with beautiful vintage shutters. read more here to get shutters just as beautiful as the ones in my favorite picture.
