gotta love it!
Have been under the weather for two days and so had taken to my bed for the most part. (No, the echinacea couldn't hold me an entire season...blast!) John brought in the mail after coming home later in the evening last and there was something I had been waiting for. Though I had actually waited just a few days since ordering it, I've been waiting for a long while to order it.
You see, I fell in love with Lynda Naranjo's photography some years ago when I first arrived in Blogdom. This particular picture was my very favorite one so finally, at long last, having some birthday money in hand, I thought that I would treat myself to it and I'm so glad that I did. Every time I see it, I smile. It reminded me of a certain something though I just couldn't figure it out. Eventually, it came to me; it reminds me of my Great-grandmother Maude's Moncton home. It's always fun to figure something like that out. Now it's made all the more special by hanging on the wall with Maude's picture and my grandmother's. I had hoped that it might fit there right beneath the former. It won't; no matter. It's fine just where it is.
And just because I have been sleeping in my grandmother's bed since being ill, I noticed with new eyes the frame that has been there all along. Don't burst my bubble by telling me that it isn't quite perfection. I love it! It picks up the subtle colors of the photograph so very well.
Now pardon me while I go walking right through that door into a Summer Breeze as this photograph is named. Thanks, Lynda! It came through perfectly packaged and in top shape. If you'd like to visit Lynda's shop, here it is: Lynda Naranjo Photography.
Have a wonderful day and, yes, I am feeling ever so much better today.
What a lovely photo. I have always loved screen doors, that go "twack" when they close.ReplyDelete
It's a beautiful picture and I love the frame! Perfect for day dreaming of the coming days of Spring! Glad your on the mend!ReplyDelete
Beautiful, Vee. I can just imagine walking through those doors too. And you take care of yourself and get better soon!ReplyDelete
Glad you are feeling better! I love looking at photographs or paintings when they remind me of something or somewhere I've been. It often times brings back some wonderful memories.ReplyDelete
Lovely! Simply and totally lovely! [Pic and frame] I can certainly see how this would have caught your eye, and captured your imagination.ReplyDelete
Even tho I'm not lucky enough to have such a memory, it certainly captures my eye and my imagination.
Transporting me back to a gentler time and place... Where such simple yet lovely old screen doors were de-rigour [spelling?] and lace curtains too. -happy sigh-
Very glad you are on the mend, and getting the under-the-weather-ness over in what was end of Winter. And not getting a proverbial *Spring Cold.* Eeeeek! :-))))))
And hope the sun is shining in your windows today [Tues.], as it is, here in mine. That will help you continue to feel better!!!
Here's hoping you are on the mend. I think we are all about ready to walk through that door into summer...well, maybe spring! Lovely photo.ReplyDelete
Lying in bed while looking at such an evocative photograph is sure to improve your health - at least mentally!ReplyDelete
Hi sweet Vee!!! Ohmygoodness girl....this photograph is so gorgeous!!! It speaks peace to me and "home" ~ I'm so glad you are feeling better and are on the mend...sending you hugs and love, DawnReplyDelete
I love the picture, too! I can imagining opening that door to sit outside with a glass of iced tea. It won't be long until that's a real possibility!ReplyDelete
You have just confirmed something for me...You have great taste! Love this!!! How special that it brings family memories back to you.ReplyDelete
Thanks for the happy note you left me this morning. I am so grateful for you!!
Please feel one hundred percent better as soon as possible.
Soo glad that you are feeling better. I love this photo...it looks like it's take out our back screen door.
Glad that it give you good memories:)
Money spent on art is money well spent, and when a picture speaks to you it must be bought or it will haunt you forever.ReplyDelete
I've learned those facts from experience!
Glad you are feeling better! Glad you took to bed to recover, too!
Love the art! The picture speaks to me, too. Lovely, lovely.
Oh my, what a gorgeous picture! I can understand why you fell in love with it...it's one of those places I would like to be. You can almost "feel" yourself there. To think it reminds you of a cherished memory makes it extra-special. What a lovely way to spend your birthday money.ReplyDelete
Lovely photo and lovely frame. One could conjure up all sorts of memories associated with that screen door.ReplyDelete
Glad to hear you are feeling better.
This beautiful photo has a distinct mood to it, and could inspire a poem or short story, so I can see how it attracted you.ReplyDelete
So glad you are feeling better! Beautiful photo, and the frame is perfect. Looking at the screen door reminds of the one my grandmother had, and being told so many times "not to slam it." lolReplyDelete
It's lovely..and sooo you! Hope you'll be feeling' fine as frog's hair soon!ReplyDelete
Oh, so glad you are feeling better. I just hate being sick.ReplyDelete
I LOVE SCREEN DOORS!!
Glad you're feeling better. The picture brings back lots of memories for me too! Love it.ReplyDelete
I love the frame you've chosen, Vee! Thank you for sharing the framed version ... I'm so happy that it brings such wonderful memories for you. xoReplyDelete
What a beautiful new treasure! It was meant to be...ReplyDelete
So pretty, Vee. And what serendipity that you discovered the perfect frame while staying in your grandmother's bed; a blessing! Glad you are feeling better.ReplyDelete
So good to hear that you're on the mend and feeling better!ReplyDelete
Oh my..... I DO LOVE the picture of the screen door and the beautiful frame.....for me.... it feels like 'going home'...
Oh Vee, I just love that photo - old timey screen doors - there's nothing like them - even hearing the kids run in and out and slam them! My grandmother always had screen doors, and I miss them so much. I've thought about putting some on my little farmhouse, and I'm still thinking on it.ReplyDelete
Sorry to hear your under the weather. Actually, I am, too. I've got the "crud". Been home from work for a couple of days and will be home tomorrow, too. I have to go back Thursday tho cuz I don't have anyone to work for me.
Hope you perk back up soon, and me, too!!! haha! Take care and enjoy your photo!
Oh I do hope you are feeling in top form again soon. So sorry you had to take to your bed. .or rather nan's.ReplyDelete
oh but the picture is lovely and the frame around it suits it perfectly. Don't you just love it when something comes together like that?
We have been under the weather at the same time, but I did not have a lovely picture with which to dream my way into summer... what a wonderful birthday present to yourself!ReplyDelete
i would love a screen door like that. i can here it slam shut during the summer as the kids run in and out of it! glad you are feeling better.ReplyDelete
I love her work, I have a beautiful hydrangea of hers. I remember this one, it looks lovely in that frame. Such a peaceful and lovely photograph.
A good way to spend your Birthday money. She was featured in one of Somerset Studio magazines recently.
I listened to the song on your video from Sunday. It broke through all barricades and went directly to my heart. As I listened to those lyrics I shed all the weariness of my life and let the tears wash away any fatigue from this world.
Thank you sweet friend. You always heal my spirit.
It's a beautiful photo, Vee. It also reminds me of my grandmother's home. I can close my eyes and be back in her kitchen in a flash..those memories are so precious! Hope you are feeling better. My time here is winding down ..what a wonderful week I've had!ReplyDelete
A beautiful image, Vee. I love it too. Take care of you and get well soon. xo TerriReplyDelete
So glad you are feeling better - that old flu bug has just traveled the country . . . from one side to the other!! Prayers will be going up for you!
I love the photo! I went and checked out a bit of her blog, and I can't wait to see more! I love those beautiful, clean lines. What fun to have a picture you love, and a memory to go with it...
there is nothing more relaxing, welcoming,ReplyDelete
and inspiring than a screen door. i'm so
glad you got your beloved photo!
Yes the curtain blowing in the breeze does draw one through.ReplyDelete
Sorry you have been unwell. Did not leave the house myself last week for 3 days as I struggled with an extremely sore throat, aching all over and feeling exhausted. Get well soon and take care.
It is a lovely photo, and I think the frame is perfect. IMHO =)ReplyDelete
