welcome......

A first impression impacts the way we welcome one another. What does your personal front door look like? Are you open to receive visitors with colourful smile or do you keep the deadbolt on at all times so as not to be invaded?

Come on in! Let's have an afternoon chat.



Bienvenue mon ami.


I'm SO pleased to see you......come in, come in......the more the merrier!

How does this welcome make you feel?


If you can climb over the heaps of snow, you're more than welcome to join me up on my sunny afternoon porch.

Reflectively shiny......reflecting back to you.






You will always find a kindred spirit behind a red door.

Thanks for the doors and the invitations. I love them all, but think I would have to stand outside #671 until I was invited in. Just looking at the colors, makes me smile!

Would love to join you :) Thank you - and you're welcome to come in out of the rain here too, x

I love the doors, especially the red one on the yellow house with the green roof!

I am reading the new Tolle book, and the word awareness is mentioned in it so many times, and every time I think of you!

Awareness said...

Sherry....me too. It's a bit eclectic! I don't think i'd open the door on my own. The house is adorable though and always catches my eye when I walk by.

Kamsin. The colours of downtown Fredericton always lighten any moody day.

Katie. Thank you.... the invite is always open over here.

Judy...i'm touched. :) A friend of mine has been waxing about this book for years now and in fact bought up all the copies on the "sale" table to hand out to family members one Christmas. I have yet to read it, but would like to give it a whirl. Glad Oprah found it and has been promoting it.

Hey, nice doors!

Mine's most like the one with the number "777" next to it. Quite plain; nothing fancy, but decently inviting (the Jehovah's Witnesses in particular seem to love visiting my door for some reason... almost as much as the absent-minded letter carrier who's always getting everyone's mail mixed up... letter carriers, eh? Can't live with 'em, can't live without 'em...)

Awareness said...

Sentinel Guy! Welcome! I've missed you.

I think the J.W. are just trying to save you from yourself.

btw...the letter carrier of NB has a cushy job.....they don't have to deliver if you happen to live on a busy street.....crazy.

Wow! What an amazing visual statement. I was once told that sanctuary always awaits behind a red door. The person who said it was very old. This post reminded me of her. Thanks.

Great post, love the doors!
I have a fascination with doors myself, when I was in Europe I wanted to take pictures of them all! Old and lovely...and such a change from here in NB!

I have started to take a series of photos of yellow houses. I have always been drawn to them and have now just realized how happy a collection of photos would be. These colors are gorgeous. Someday when I have my own front door it is going to be a grand color that often changes.
