  1. Lovely doors … We’re still looking for old doors for our house — I really dislike the modern ones, so we have been leading a mostly doorless existence.:)

      So pleased you like them. Several of the old doors survive (there is one at the back of the Wood and Metal 5 picture) but mostly they are Victorian or modern now, I am sorry to say.

  2. This image reminds me of the “vintage” style cottages I used to live when I worked in the U.S.. “Vintage- is used to describe something that is not new but that is valued because of its good condition, attractive design, etc.”- Merriam Webster Dictionary.
    Well, I lived in at least 3 different cottages with vintage-style wooden furniture and decor. It’s so beautiful, and in the U.S. it’s more reminiscent of colonial times.

      Well the house was burned down quite early in the 18th Century so if that cupboard was part of the rebuilding just after that they would indeed have been made and fitted during the colonial period in the US. There is some slight evidence that the room the cupboard is in was at some time a public bar (the local market was held nearby). Strange to sit in that room now and imagine the heated arguments that might have gone on there when people got the news of the Boston Tea Party…

  3. I know the feeling; I also had Déjà vu feelings where I lived, well, if you believe in such thing, but the character is evocative of an era.
