Doors- Never throw out an Old Door.


I was heading back to the hotel after walking the streets of Boston. This door I found in the business area. Everything around me was concrete, glass, and slabs of cold marble. On both sides of this door was a hedge, behind the door, was a little garden patio. An entry way to glasses filled with wine, and a little space set aside from the roar of traffic. Are we in  a rush to throw things out too soon? It was just back in the 1950’s that in England furniture was still rationed. The second-hand trade was booming. I loved this little door, saved from the rubbish heap, even if it looks terribly out-of-place and yet at the same time such a welcoming sight!


About susan sheldon nolen

It’s rare to catch me without coffee, a form of camera, or my beloved wire fox terriers. I love the history, the art, and it’s a massive part of my life, as I either paint, write, or get interrupted by my dogs, reminding me of the real world. I hope you enjoy your time here. It’s such a privilege to have readers.
