At Merle's Request: My Front Door




My friend, Merle, over at Third Try, asked me to post photos of my front door after reading my post "A Look at My House." Here you go, Merle. I hope you enjoy it.

I challenge my visitors to post pictures of their houses. I would love to see where you all live.



Merle,

Here is a bouquet of roses for you for your kind comments and thoughts. I always enjoy your visits and your inspiration.

  2. Mary,

    I love this door. I guess I posted in the wrong place. I have never seen such a beautiful door.

    Hugs,

  3. Denise,

    It is nice and that's the only luxury item we've purchased for the house. We both loved it.

    Thanks for visiting.

  4. Tina,

    We both loved the door and thought for once we would splurge. We put the door on last year and we've really enjoyed it.

    Thanks for dropping by. Hope you're having a great day, my friend.

  5. Your door is beautiful!

    I'll probably be posting more of my house closer to Christmas as the decorations go up and such.

    Have a great day!

    Thanks for the comments on the door. Both my husband and I love it. It's so unique.

    I look forward to seeing the photos of your house when you get your Christmas decorations up.

    Have a wonderful day.

  7. Mary,

    The front door is beautiful!

    I like your house. And horse hair plaster is very rare, at least in my area. Most of the old homes in Marietta have been completely renovated, so I doubt there are many left with original building material intact.

  8. Deborah,

    This is a historical city and many of the homes in certain areas are historical landmarks. They still have the original building materials. There are many older homes that have not been renovated. Horse hair plaster is quite common in all of these homes. This is the third house I've owned that's had horse hair plaster. One I renovated and it's not pretty.

    Thanks for dropping by. I always enjoy and look forward to your visits.

  9. What a beautiful door!!!! Thanks to Merle for getting you to post it. :-)

    And thank you for commenting that my husband's old truck is "divine." It is, to him!

    How would lots of photos of my city do? For someone who loves to see where people live? I post them, in the photo link below my name...

    I belong to a blog which links blogs of cities all around the world. The gentleman who has that linking blog, added mine to it. I was very happy, at this. -gigggles- You can see the links to cities around the world, on the right of my blog {linked below}.

  10. smilnsigh,

    Wonderful! I will check out your city. Sounds great!

    You husband's truck is sure a classic. Wish I still had Dad's. The only difference was color.

    Thanks for dropping by. I'll be over a little later to check out your blog.

    Have a wonderful day.

  12. Michele,

    I'm glad you like the door. I'm very proud of it. It's the one luxury that we've allowed ourselves here. All other things have been necessary.

    Yes, I thought Merle deserved a beautiful bouquet. She inspires me.

    Take care and thanks for dropping by. It's always nice to see you here and read your comments.

    Have a great week.
    Mary

  14. What a lovely door! I was just reading about your home. One old home we lived in had a stairwell with storage space underneath. One day as I went to place something, I noticed the wallpaper was torn. Of course, I had to peek, and found underneath was pasted a newspaper from 1900 something! The next old house I lived in still had the piping for the gas lamps originally used and a few of the lamp remains were still on the walls!!

  15. Merle,

    I'm glad you enjoyed seeing the door and that you enjoyed the bouquet of roses.

    I appreciate your message of sympathy.

    Blessings,
    Mary

  16. cynthia,

    We found no trace of gas lamps, but they weren't popular in this area of town. The people that lived here eked out a living on a daily basis. Gas lighting is still found in houses that were in the prominent part of town in that day.

    Yes, lifting wallpaper can be interesting. It's surprising what can be beneath the layers.

    Thanks for stopping by. I have enjoyed your visit.

  17. Now that is one of the most beautiful doors I've ever seen! You have a gorgeous house, Mary, and I always find the more character a house has, the better:-) I so love old homes, if only they could talk, imagine the stories they could tell of days gone by!! xox

  18. WOW!!! Is that mountain scene ---painted, etched, what? It's stunning.

  19. Pea,

    I would love this house to be able to tell the stories of what's happened within its walls since it was built. That would be awesome.

    Thanks for your kind and thoughtful comments. I always enjoy your visits.

    Have a terrific Tuesday.
    Mary

  20. Anni,

    I'm not sure how it was put on. I would imagine it was done with acid, as in etching. We love it.

    Thanks for dropping by. I always enjoy your visits and also visiting your blog.

    Blessings,
    Mary
