Pictures of doorways captured my interest for awhile.
And this one was so sweet and welcoming..
I just had to Zoom In.
Doors with this much character do not need adornment.
This will be the last painted lady before moving on to another neighborhood.
Opps! One more on my way out.
In this neighborhood we find homes of a very different style.
Still beautiful in a different way.
But I couldn't pass them by.
During all this cruising around I managed to multi-task by taking the alleys here and there. Alley shopping is at the top of my favorites list.
My first score was this stepladder. Obviously not for practical purposes. With one leg slightly shorter than the rest, it would be a prop only. But it was dilapitated in a really good way and I was happy to have it.
This next piece really surprised me. I could not believe my luck.
I pulled this away from some other trash half expecting it to be broken in some way. But, it is in great shape! This is definately going to be a good year!!
I was way excited with this gift. It's a fine chair but it's also my GOOD OMEN.
I wound down my day having a lovely dinner with friends at Basil Spice. It was a perfect day and a fine start for the new year.
I wish for all of you what I anticipate for myself, a year filled with successful endeavers, joyful encounters, and pleasant surprises.
