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!
