The Key to a Collection

It only makes sense that someone
who likes to build with old doors,
would also collect the things associated with doors.


And what do you do with a collection?You group it together,
for maximum design impact, of course!

I have been waiting for you to post all morning...you have been such an inspiration to me. I love everything you do and decorate.

Yesterday, I spray painted a bird bath in honor of You! It turned out well and now is in my bathroom I even mentioned you on my posting!

Love the collection!

I love keys. I don't know why, but they are one of my favorites. I posted about some large keys I have in my hallway a while back. Not real, but still the shape.

Valarie said...

I love those keys, and I have always wandered what do you do with those old door knobs. :)

To do list;
1.Pick up some old door knobs
2.Continue wishing I could decorate that well

I love your bookshelf with all your beautiful things. And how fun, the hurricane with all the knobs. I love that. It's a look that you would find in a model home and think,"Hmmm, why didn't I think of that?"

Love the looks.
