What's behind door number.......

Are you as intrigued by garden doors as much as I am?

When you pass by has the door been shut, leaving you wondering what hidden treasures can be found inside?

Or maybe the door has been left ajar allowing you just a glimpse inside.

And then there are those welcoming souls who leave the door wide open, as if to say come on in everyone is welcome.

Yes, some doors lead into enchanted spaces,

while others lead nowhere at all,

If you love garden doors as much as I do come join my new board on Pinterest creatively titled garden doors.

  5. Love these! Doors are so expressive - they're like chairs, that way, don't you think? Our 3 acres is a little unwieldy to have a walled garden but I still aspire to creating such a space, one day. I love windows in gardens too and have been collecting antique windows for such a purpose. Even though I don't always love some elements of "The Nature", as I call it, I do love our Fairy Forest and my Thinking Spot on our property. I'll try to post pics soon on: www.avintagelife.wordpress.com. Thanks for the inspiration!

  12. I'm usually quite polite, at least I try to. But there's one very impolite thing I can't help but doing, it's peeking through garden doors to see what they are hiding!
