Cottage Charm

 Hi Everyone
 Happy Wednesday
One of the first things we did when we bought 
our Home was put 
a screen door on our front door
 It came from a old house in Irvine California that was being torn down
I strapped the screen door to the top of my car with bungee cords
 {always handy to have in the car}
 and kept my fingers crossed it would fit the front door 
so grateful it fit with just minor trimming
 {Love}
having the door open on warm sunny days
and
 we all enjoy the view of the front yard  and the addition of the cool breeze 
that flows through the house
There are white popcorn roses growing 
on a vintage rusty garden rose support
The rose smells so great filling the house with its intoxicating aroma 
Our kitty patiently waiting for me to open 
the screen door to go outside
This vintage screen door adds a cottage charm 
to our home
So grateful it fit!!

  3. You have one of the most beautiful entryways to your home that I have ever seen. I love everything about it but especially the screen door.

  4. I used to love our screen door in our old home. The breeze and fresh air coming through the house was amazing. The entryway to your home is perfect, loving all the chippy paint adding to the charm!

  5. I love your front entryway and your sweet screen door. We have one on our house and I love the nice air that comes through it in summer (definitely not in winter here!). We do need a new one as this one is in rough shape now. Your roses are beautiful! Enjoy the day. Pamela

  14. Loving the screen door and windows above to the 2nd. floor? It looks so welcoming and pretty with the view inside. Wow can I move into your house? So pretty. Love your little patio in front also. It is so nice to have a screen door.
    Our dog is just the right height to stand, look out our storm/screen door, he can watch his world to make sure everything as he thinks it should be. That door also helps keep it warmer in winter.
