Today a package arrived from Leiden, Netherlands! That's not something that happens every day around here, let me tell you! But I knew right away what it would have inside.
A door from Cobi as part of the Traveling Page swap! But that's not all! She also included some photos of "real" dutch-style doors and a postcard from her home as well as a lovely note telling me about this page.
Cobi embroidered these beautiful flowers around the door. I love the way the colors brighten up the pale brick wall. And those red flowers are jillions of tee-tiny french knots! (Well, it seems like jillions!)
But the best part is that the top half of the door opens! That scene you can see there is on the postcard. But I can put anything I like behind that door. Maybe I'll find a Dutch girl to stand in my doorway.
Cobi and I share a fondness for Terry Pratchett's books and this quote is a perfect example of his wit. It is also a perfect quote for my book of doors that go nowhere!
I'm in the finishing stages of my page for April - after a couple of false starts! Still having lots of fun with this project!
