THE Door

Do you believe in love at first sight?  We're not talking lust...I mean REAL love. The kind that makes you break out in a cold sweat. You can't catch your breath kind of love....
You know as soon as you lay eyes on're hooked. That tall, slender build makes you swoon.
You know that underneath that rough..rugged exterior, there's a soft....smooth...sleek....interior....sigh.
You know that he was made for you.
You lose all of your inhibitions, walk right up to him, and say....."You're coming home with me baby".
He looks at you with those eyes that remind you of the ocean....and you just know.... he's yours.
Once you get him home, you are amazed at how well he fits in with the blue and sea green bottles, and the mason jars.  That weathered skin looks wonderful with all the other white in the room.
And that hardware..........need I say more?


I just love that strong, silent type.

I'm sharing with Cindy at My Romantic Home for Show and Tell Friday. Go on over and see all the other posts that are shared this week.
Another place to visit is
It's Becky's new online store: Junk to Joy Shop
Becky's blog is Holiday in the Sun.


  1. Me too! He had me at the first chip! xxoo Diana

  2. Do you mind if I oggle your door from afar? That is my favorite type of lock BTW. The kind that sits on the outside of the door, not imbedded in the door.

  3. You got me at the swooning part! I'm still the weathered look myself and those broad shoulders would have done me in!
    Hugs- Tete
