never noticed the storm doors were worse for wear. They
had no insulation at all. DH said it was time for a change and asked
me to look around for what I wanted. I looked everywhere I went
and found this beautiful door!
affordable, and insulated for the winter. This is what I had.
the other door that went to the kitchen was not. I didn't
get a picture of it. We decided to replace both doors so the deck
would look better. DH saw I was distracted looking at all kinds
of doors so he took me to Lowe's and Home Depot and compared
insulated storm doors. We went out one Saturday night like a
"date" and picked out doors! It was really fun!
We planned to buy them in the fall and replace them one pretty day,
not in 103 degree heat! Well, the next weekend the better ones went
on sale and we rushed down to the store to buy them. DH did
install them in the heat. The style was a little different than the old
ones but those are not available anymore.
doors. (There are some advantages to marrying an artist!)
I love the new doors but I still can't get one door I saw on my
search out of my mind.
This door was left in the wall of a textile mill that burned years
There is the door on the left. You can see the inside of the mill
along with the tower in the back and the gaping hole in the front.
Whenever I drive by the mill, I look over at the door and ask myself,
why did someone leave the door? Was it left as a joke, or as poety?There is nothing behind the door. It is the door to nowhere. Or
maybe it is the door to memories.
I'm very happy with my new storm doors. I hope they will save
me some money on utility bills this year. But most of all, I hope
they are doors to memories.
Thank you for visiting today!
