Hacksaw Ridge/#thursdaydoors

I mailed a package today. The door it is headed for will most likely take 10 to 14 days as they had wave after wave of typhoons (no pun intended) hit their island. So naturally mail is a bit delayed lately while they do some recovering/repairing/regrouping.

Are you curious as to what was in the package? Well it turns out I can tell you because they saw pictures ahead of time.

This is a cash budget envelope system for my niece who lives for the next few years in Okinawa, Japan. She’ll be able to allocate her cash and reduce overspending with these envelopes. She is to be credited with sending me Pinterest ideas to create this pretty cool idea. And of course, she knew her aunt has plenty of scraps. So in return……….

I get a few door posts.ย  (not that I wouldn’t have made these for her anyway) ๐Ÿ™‚

One of her favorite places to eat. I believe they serve familiar food there.

For your shopping convenience, this is the Japanese equivalent to Target called ‘Nitori’ according to my niece.

A door at the bottom of the hill of Hacksaw Ridge.

A gorgeous view from the top of Hacksaw Ridge looking out over the ocean. Forgive me for not knowing which direction this faces. But it definitely gives you an idea of how crowded the island is.

Glad to see this historical area is given some honor. A beautiful spot for reflection.

Hope you’ve enjoyed this Thursday Doors post and will take time to visit Norm 2.0 where he will direct you to many many more wonderful door posts from all over.

  1. You know we STILL use a variation of a budget envelope system at home today. It works for us.
    I like your inventiveness in bartering for exotic door pics – that is awesome ๐Ÿ™‚
