doors

Life is full of choices

Windows, or doors?

Old, or new?

Real, or imagined?

But the hardest choice of all?  Which challenge to enter!  And I’m spoilt for choice this week, because Klara Bach has given me choices in Thursday’s Special.  I’ve promised Dawn I’ll linger by a few more windows, and then there’s Norm’s Doors!  I ask you- what’s a girl to do?  Enjoy the challenge, I guess.  I hope you do, too.  Every picture tells a story!  Do you have a favourite?

Sunday Post : Hope

2012-dragon-logo-small1

Jakesprinter is celebrating Hope with his Sunday Post this week.  Newly returned from the Algarve, I’m afraid my hope is very selfish- that my dream of retirement in this beautiful place might not be too far off.

Some day to have a tile-fronted home

Some day I’d love to have a tile-fronted home

And maybe a door and windows like this

With maybe a door and windows like these

A tessoura roof and trim would be pretty

With a little roof garden

With a little roof garden

It might need a little TLC

Of course, a little TLC might be in order

I love the blue tiles, but maybe brown could be good.

But wouldn't a lacy balcony be just perfect?

And wouldn’t a lacy balcony be just perfect?

And then there's the joy of chimney pots

Then there’s the joy of chimney pots

I could have such fun!

I could have such fun!

I'd have wonderful flowers in my garden

I’d have wonderful flowers in my garden

But one thing is certain- I'd always be close by boats and the sea

But one thing is always certain- I’d have to be close to boats and the sea

Thank you, Jake.  I may be home again, but the hope is still very much alive.  I’m looking forward to seeing what everyone else is hoping for this week, so join me over on Jake’s page?  You won’t be sorry.
