A rather splendid front door!  by happypat

A rather splendid front door!

Saw this in Edinburgh & thought it very handsome!

Three good things:
1. A very nice pair of striped grey bamboo socks in the post yesterday. A free sample from a company called BAM who sell bamboo clothing. Now if course I feel guilty if I don’t buy anything!
2. My three year hearing review today but all she did was tell me their contract was coming to an end & if I needed anything to wait until next March. She did give me a few cards of the original batteries though as the new brand aren’t as good in my opinion.
3. I bought an oven thermometer to check my oven temperatures, I don’t think my oven is still hot enough.
That’s amazing. Are those flowers real?

@susiemc No Sue they aren’t but very realistic!

I love the doors of Edinburgh. This one is quite colorful!

oh isn't it just! How lovely!

Gorgeous door. I got a free pair of socks from BAM, too, Pat. Liked them so much I've bought six pairs! Looks like free socks is a good marketing move.

Amazing front door!

What a super doorway! Hope you can re calibrate your oven. Annoying when they are out.

That looks stunning.. don't usually like fake flowers but they look good here... as long as they replace them when they fade.. lucky you with the free socks.. bamboos lovely..

Gorgeous front door.

@jocasta v. Ooh now I feel I definitely should buy...good to have your feedback Jocasta. I did notice they were in pacs of six. I have heard they don’t leave ring round your ankles!

Very colourful - I wonder if they are celebrating something special - a wedding perhaps !! but sorry , silk flowers are not my cup of tea !!
November 23rd, 2018  
This does look good with all that colour. Bamboo is supposed to be good.
November 23rd, 2018  
Wow... that's gorgeous!!
November 23rd, 2018  
So very pretty

@beryl I hate silk flowers Beryl & woukd never buy them but this door did look pretty, over the top of course but it was in Old Town Edinburgh so a tourist thing I expect!
November 23rd, 2018  
@dide Yes I might buy some socks!

@aecasey @huvesaker @joansmor @judithdeacon @gijsje @kwind @Dawn

It really took my eye, had to nearly stand in the middle of the road to get in focus but the flowers although silk looked really fresh & colourful. Thank you all.

@casablanca It’s an Aga so hard to alter easily, we have had work done on it & it is hotter but never know exactly how hot the thing is. I have an electric oven too but love this old girl.

@julzmaioro The bamboo seems very soft I agree, just wonder how hard wearing the socks will be, if the6 get a hole in they get thrown out....does anyone darn socks these days!
November 23rd, 2018  
Rather smart. I bought and sent my daughter Clare some bamboo socks which I saw in the shop front of a chiropodist, supposedly very soft. She was pleased!
November 23rd, 2018  
Love it, what a welcoming sight for visitors.
November 23rd, 2018  
splendid is an understatement Pat, this is gorgeous

How colourful, looks so pretty & different.
Lovely capture.
November 24th, 2018  
Ooh that's beautiful!
November 24th, 2018  
Oh my. A work of art, really.
November 24th, 2018  
Very pretty, a lovely find
November 24th, 2018  
@quietpurplehaze I haven’t worn mine yet Hazel but they seem lovely & soft!

@happypat They do leave a very small ring but much better than most. I bought a pack of three - then got an email saying free postage if I bought anything else. Once again, clever marketing. I really like them - my first ever bamboo clothing.
November 25th, 2018  
@jocasta Yes I’m going to send for some too. I usually but black socks as I can mix & match but will go colour this time!
November 25th, 2018  
I love this - the flowers just might be real? You don't say! Just imagine coming home to this doorway and seeing this.... happiness! fav
November 26th, 2018  
@maggiemae No unfortunately not real but very beautiful silk ones used in an imaginative e way. Thanks for the fave!
