another thursday door, PLUS, THE MOST EXCITING THING….

by grace on March 2, 2017

i’ve been gone since last thursday, in NYC ostensibly to help my friend bev move her daughter, but then we didn’t actually have to do that, but we did many, many other things, and i have just one little posting of a fabulous door…

but first, i just have to say that after kevin picked us up at the springfield airport and we went out for a celebratory dinner and came home, kevin had CLEANED OUT THE FRIDGE!  i mean, he cleaned and threw out things that were expired and even took out all the shelves and cleaned them and WHAT A FABULOUS FELLOW I’M MARRIED TO!

a delightful homecoming.

so here’s my thursday door, even though i shouldn’t even have this computer open right now, i should just be sitting here relaxing, but really, that’s what i’m doing.

we went to the metropolitan museum, one of my favorite places in new york, and i never can spend enough time there.  i had to first go look at my favorite impressionist paintings, by monet mostly, and then we saw a few other things, and we happened to stroll by this truly lovely painting of  doors.

 

here’s the information about the painting.

if you’ve visited the met, you know that it’s so cram-packed with so many magnificent treasures of all kinds, it’s kind of mind-boggling to be there, and whenever i’m there i always have this sense of hopelessness at being able to see even a fraction of what i’d like to view.  so i think it’s wonderful that we just happened upon this work.

there are about a million more photos to follow but i’m really going to do my best to condense them into not so many.

a good time was had by all.

As always…Thursday Doors is a weekly feature allowing door lovers to come together to admire and share their favorite door photos from around the world. Feel free to join in on the fun by creating your own Thursday Doors post each week and then sharing it, between Thursday morning and Saturday noon (North American eastern time), by using the blue link-up button at Norm 2.0 .  Look for this guy at the bottom of Norm’s page

ok then,

mrs. late thursday back in the heart of the country hughes.

That’s a brilliant painting – doors within doors. I’m sending this link to my daughter, she’s doing an art course and would find this artist’s work interesting. When you said the fridge had been cleaned out I was sure you meant that Kevin had eaten everything. Lol!

thanks, jean! haha, no, he cleaned out some very very old things that needed to be thrown away…it was a shockingly nice surprise. re: the painting – like i said, it was such a wonderful piece, and i was so surprised to see it there.
