my new little door nook





























This morning I was sitting in my JUST built little door nook , praising and thanking God , watching so many birds ,,,, chickadee , titmouse, finch , even a wood pecker .
I've always wanted a porch or a little cozy sitting area .... a place to read, pray , watch the birds , listen to the rain .
Here I am !!!!!  I can't believe it .......

If you go to my Pinterest ""page ""..... [ look under my cozy home section ] ....you can see the door nook that was the inspiration for MY door nook .

We had a small area by my back door leveled and laid with brick , then I found old doors , some solid , some with windows . My door nook has two doors above as a roof . Our carpenter friend  { Rich } made it all very sturdy and I think it will last for many many years . Rich did a great job .... it was so much fun for me to watch him build this . { Thank you Rich }
and thank you husband Michael and thank you Lord !
This morning I hung bittersweet vines all over . This is wonderful ! I'm so happy
Do you remember the Walt Disney book " Cinderella " ? There is a picture in that book of birds putting ribbons in Cinderella's hair . I feel like these birds will put ribbons in MY hair , they aren't afraid ... they are so close to me .
It was hard to take photos .... trying to show my view as I sit inside the nook . Jerry loves it .
see my bird bath ?  it's an old bathroom sink
see all my junk in the yard ? I'll get to it .... soon .
See the walk way ?  the stone slabs ?  I don't know what to put in between the slabs .
well .........
I spent the whole day outside ..... I'd better get back to work .... make more dolls !

It really is lovely, no wonder you are so pleased! Who wouldn't delight in having a "door Nook", even Howdy Doody is enjoying himself. You've got a marvelous view and I can almost hear the birds myself.

Hey Girly-Girl. I'm happy for you and your new door nook. It really does look peaceful. The perfect place to pray and commune with nature. Remember that this is your place of rest and resist the temptation to bring your art supplies and such out there. There is a place for art and a place for quiet and they don't have to be the same place. Enjoy. Hugs.

I love the setting of your home, which is very nature-friendly. It is a rarity to see birds just fluttering about in your front yard, and it must be such a pleasure to see them. It seems like such a comforting and refreshing experience to stay there and just take in the beauty of your surroundings. :)

Regards,
Marla

I love it! Love your yard and all the collected treasures in it. My favorite is the sink on a pedestal complete with faucet. Jerry looks very comfortable in the new book nook. Next time have him take a picture of you in the other chair. I wish you lived near me.
