Turn O'er and Look

I was driving to work and found a door cut in half at the curb.

The little door was an el cheapo, not an early 20th century original.


But, it had some little jewelry on it that sparkled at me from the side of the road.




Oh, how I love crystal knobs.


I did not have our tools handy (sometimes we drive around with them),

 so the little half- door was stashed in the van until we could get it home

and remove the glass knob.






(virtual both lips, both cheeks, smooch, smooch, smooch.)






She's now lovingly elevated

on my vintage metal birdbath.






Drive slowly,

study your surroundings...






...carry home the cast-offs.

What a wonderful find, Andrea. The door knob is so pretty. Did you find the rosary by the door as well? Your bird bath is gorgeous. I am really into birds lately.

Love the doorknobs too, you don't see them anymore, you sure hit the jackpot on that find on the side of the road!
