Thursday’s Doors ~ welcoming atmosphere, part 3

Image

There’s two doors,

A double door post!

I liked the book box, it was already

featuring a great book, if I had “posed”

the setting the book you’ll see in front 

would have been put in the bookcase.

There’s pink and mint chairs over

there and beside the box, a mint

green chair ready to sit on,

once the visitor chooses

a book to read and savor.

Please check out the

other door posts!

You may leave 

one message,

if you wish!

Norm Frampton, our doors

Thursday’s Doors ~ book box, part 2

Image

This book box is one of many

independent, fun borrowing 

stations located around our 

small town of Delaware, Ohio.

I’m sure there are some many

places across the country. I’m

not sure of their names or if

there is a movement or 

trend, when it started

and where it began?

Maybe there is a 

website or a founder

who came up with this

concept which is meaningful.

Books connect us and were our

first places to inform us of 

imaginary worlds, taking 

us across oceans and

into homes, museums

and so much more!

Fill in some blanks,

if you know more about

this borrowing book box!

Here’s a much appreciated man,

Norm Frampton,

blue frog links to other 

diverse doors, 

ones close to you 

or far away!

Thursday’s Doors ~ storybook house, part 1

Image

My Mom raised me to love the

larger than life flowers such as

Queen Anne’s Lace, Sunflowers,

and these purple cone flowers.

This house has outdoor bookcase,

which has a door to open, choose

a book and if you have one extra,

leave one to replace the borrowed

book. I like blue houses with

white trim and a nice porch

like this one to sit down on

white wicker furniture upon

a cushion, lean into a pillow

and if curious, look out at

the sidewalk and street.

If reading a book, this

would be a perfect 

place to “travel,”

engage in any

number of

adventures!

This post is part of a

larger doors community

known as Thursday Doors.

The host who is the keeper of

links, connection to doors

is Norm Frampton:

Happy doors seeking and 

let me know if a special

storybook house is on

your mind, please!

Thursday’s Doors ~ December 22, 2016 (close up)

You may remember another shop

which was featured in the Fall.

It was a shop connected in this

grand brick building, separated 

by interior walls with several

places. The Choffey’s coffee

and tea shop with decadent

chocolates is on the left

of  this  florist shop.

It’s hard to capture,

showing how each

has its individual

personality.

This door in an 

older brick building

has fun with both formal 

and informal floral

holiday arrangements.

This is part of a series of doors,

with a link here to the founder,

Norm Frampton and his followers:

Someone may remember from a

Spring photograph posted,

about the view from “my”

Front porch of the apt

building. Recently,

a post had the

Hebrew alphabet,

blocks of symbols,

on either side of

the entrance to

this neighboring

“Castle” as my

grandies call it!

Wondrous and amazing,

no matter what season!

Happy autumn days,

to you my friends!

Americana colors

“Americana”
by Robin O. Cochran

It is not the red, white and blue
Nor the eagle in its glory.

It is not the President
Nor the governing bodies.

It is not just found in
small towns or big cities
Nor only in the rich or poor.

It is not the rhetoric
The negative acts,
Nor a few evil people.

It is the warmth of neighbors,
Gathering over fences
or on porches.

It is the multi-colored hues,
faces, hands and hearts
helping rake leaves.

It is all the birds,
natural wonders
and beautiful everyday lives.

These are who
and what I feel
honored to believe in.

I still have
Hope for
Americana
Rising.
