Front Door Bliss

Good evening sweet blogging buddies.
Things are coming along nicely on our redo project
and I am loving my new space.
Bob still has some moulding to finish around the fireplace
and hang a few more doors.
I have to order more tobacco cloth...
did not realize my window is bigger than it looks.
Sort of that old adage were your eyes are bigger
than your stomach. LOL
Oh how my gramma B would say that almost every day
to me when I was at her farmhouse.
But even though I could never eat all of my supper,
dessert could be eaten.

This is a small area near our front door.
Bob painted the inside of our door
the same color as the walls.
Although the drysink is more a colonial blue,
it has taken on more of a sea green in this pic.

On top of the drysink I placed this wood trough,
which was a piece that was originally from Rick Fuller
who owns a shop in Vermont.

I placed my salt glaze crock with faux lavender on the left,
an early green bottle in the middle,
and a small blue slip salt glaze pitcher on the right.

My gramma H's parents have their place of honor
above it all.
Great gramma Effie and great grandpa Robert.
Why did no one smile back then?
Maybe because it took forever to take a picture.

Sneak peek of our new curtains.
These are from Family Heirloom Weavers.
I actually bought two Odin's Wisdom
 Indigo Blue pattern throws and just clippped them on.
Yes they are throws not actual curtains.
I clipped tobacco cloth on the backside.
Will show you the whole window in another post.
Bob liked them cause they look and feel like coverlets.

More to come.
Hope you enjoy the pics as much as we like our new room.

Front Door Bliss Blessings To All!


  1. Love it and what a cool idea for curtains Janice.
    I really like how you group prims together.
    Enjoy your Memorial Day weekend!

  2. Hi Janice, I love the display, you really put treasures together wonderfully. Beautiful Indigo blue, great curtain idea. Wishing you and your a Happy Memirial Day!!! Hugs Francine.

  3. Well that's a great idea for the coverlets! It all looks great! Such talent!
    Hugs Marg.

  4. Oh Janice...this is just wonderful! I love everything about this!

  5. The front door perfectly matches those curtains. I have seen curtains with the sleeve for a rod along the top and ones with giant holes so you can run a rod through them, never seen these clip on kind before. That really opens up some unique possibilities because you can paint that door any color and it will still match the decor.
