Top Doors 2018/ThursdayDoors

Happy Holidays and welcome to my last Thursday Doors post of 2018. Our beloved Norm 2.0 has encouraged participants to choose some favorites of the past year for this final entry. I’ve decided to go with some favorites picked by You!-my faithful readers. So without further fuss, I’ll get started.

Dove Road, Pettis County, Missouri

From my first Thursday Doors post of 2018, this was the Readers Favorite of the year. These stone houses are pretty common around the state of Missouri. Maybe I will feature some more in the coming year?

Calvary Episcopal Church

FaceBook followers ‘liked’ Broadway and Ohio post the most. This church must resonate with our local hometown folks and with good reason. It has been a comforting fixture for the last 133 years.

-Trees can make the barn, or vice versa.

Instagram victory went to the Southwestern Pettis County entry. Who doesn’t love a barn in a setting like this? Makes me homesick everytime I look at it, but in a good way. Thankful that I’m not in a town that’s too big for me to escape once in awhile for a good old-fashioned country drive.

Special thanks to our Thursday Doors aficionado for all the encouragement through the year. As he takes a small, much deserved break until January, I’ll be stocking up on doors for your viewing enjoyment. As always, thanks to you all for reading, liking, browsing and sharing your thoughts through comments.

February of 2011/Thursday Doors

I was reminded of a memory by FaceBook of a Smilebox I’d created back in the early days of my membership to that social media site. Little did I know then that I’d captured several doors and some winter scenes to boot. I did you all a favor and removed the music. I find that it isn’t as appealing to everyone else’s taste. So you’re welcome ūüôā

Hope you enjoy this slice of Missouri of February 2011.

Older versions have such superb artistry.

Do you have any idea how spellbound my kiddos will be? You can’t find this stuff on tv or computer screens.

(unless you search eBay)

These deserve to be Cherished and Read to our young.

While Waiting on the Laundry…..

It’s Saturday…
The Kids are Away….More on that later.
I blocked and starched this:

So also “waiting for the paint to dry” besides the laundry. That’s a

Bavarian lace-style ¬†block in case ya didn’t know.

So then….. talked on the phone for 45 minutes to my sister. Didn’t mention the work in progress was looking like this….IMG_2156

It’s a sore subject right now. Let’s just say I’ll continue it later.

And changed my Facebook cover photo.

And the laundry continues.

Happy Saturday everyone!
