The door to the chapel next to the church.
Eeny meeny miny moe which key hole is a go?
My favorite door knockers are Fatima's Hand, as they are called.
You either push it to open, or pull it to shut the door.
When taking photos of old doors in my neighborhood I realized that was nearly impossible to line the angles up. Very few were in line.
I love these.
Got a thing for them. The other day at the brocante a man was selling fifty or so of them. I nearly peed my pants with crazy happiness. I spent half my life begging him for his best price for all of them. In the end I bought them. Some for me, some to put on my online shop. Some for gifts.
From these photos I can see the burnt orange is the "in" color.
This is an old photo I took... the shutter is long gone, so is the moustache hinge. The facade has be fixed, beige in color, and smooth as butter.
Not photo worthy as it was before.
Obviously didn't receive the color chart memo.
Love the arrow indicating which way to turn the door handle to open the door.
Our door is solid wood.
When my Mother saw it she said, "Paint it."
We talked many happy moments about what color.
French Husband nearly gave birth when he heard our idea. "Paint the wooden door?! Paint the wooden door? What? We don't paint wooden doors." he repeated it over and over like a negative mantra.
I didn't daresay, "Yeah you do." Nor did I say, "Most the doors around here are wooden."
Eight years later the door is unpainted wood, French Husband's nerves are important to keep calm.
You might say:
Worn from welcome.
Did it turn to gold?
What type of door and handle do you have?
