Connecting with the World.....


Before there were blogs and internet websites, we connected to the world through hand delivered mail.


Leave it to the Europeans to inject beauty into a mundane object like a mailbox!



I took these pictures in March when I was in Venice....I am always fascinated with artistic beauty seen even in a mail slot.


Oh yes, there are beautiful door handles as well....but this time I really found some treasures!



My heart nearly skipped a beat when I walked by these name plates!!! I stopped so abruptly, I was almost trampled by the people walking behind me.


These beat any profile picture I could post on line!......
I saved the best photo for last!


This was an unexpected surprise  found in a narrow calle behind the Ca Rezzonico. The first impression someone has of your home is usually your door...make it fabulous with a wonderful vintage door handle or mail slot. It is always in the details that you find the most delightful inspiration!

So wonderfully unique Theresa!! I love these and will now be on the lookout for the mail slots, name plates and knobs!

Do come and see my interview with Leslie of Segreto Finishes and enter to win her Fabulous Book!

WOW!! I understand and absolutely share your excitement. I have a ''thing'' for balconies and windows in Venice. PS: Next time, let's meet!

These are all wonderful! And like these folks, we should all have front doors that reflect that unique personalities live behind them!
