On Closer Inspection

First of all a special shout out to my friend Erin-art and gardens.
Those in the flooded areas of TN have had a tragic week.
Although Erin has been affected, she tells me that her family is OK,
but many of her friends and neighbors are not as fortunate.
Would you please keep her in your prayers, and maybe stop on by
her link to the right, and wish them well.

Update: Erin has posted photos of the flood on her blog. I don't believe most of
America realizes how wide spread the damage is.
********************
With a garden party coming up this weekend, it was time to tidy up the
screened porch. While polishing and dusting, I took notice of details that go
unappreciated in the daily to and fro from yard to porch and back.


Vintage raised panel door with chipped paint and a patina
impossible to reproduce today.




A smaller cabinet with three shelves that store the overflow
from the pantry. Touches of green and a treasured lock.




Guarding the door, my angel; every detail worth a second glance.




A cat companion for the angel, with wings of his own.




Z's house on closer inspection.

Your post hit home about your friend and the flooding. I live in Lewis County, Wa, and we've been through it too, although, luckily, not this year. My home hasn't been affected, but I have friends who lost theirs, and know so many others who suffered.

Hi Suzan, I love the photos you took of your door, they look so beautiful. There is nothing like old worn wood, it reminds me of times long ago. I love your angel and cat angel, so sweet. Your post is totally lovely. Thank you for sharing.

Beautiful, as always - am keeping all of those affected by the tornados and flooding in my thoughts. We lived through major flooding in St. Louis in 93 - NOT fun! You don't realize just HOW devastating it is until you're actually in the middle of it all!
