Through My Back Door

When people enter my house they always enter through the back door. I think back door guests are best, so come on in. Lets get acquainted, who knows we may even become friends. I live in beautiful East Tn on a creek. I love it here and on a day like today, words can't describe its beauty. Every where you look is color. The leaves are turning and it is a perfect day. I wish I could put it in a bottle and keep it for the cold dreary days of January.I guess I will just enjoy today.
I am not a crafter  nor creator of beautiful things. I don't even do makeovers, I don't sew nor quilt. What do I do? I appreciate all the beautiful things other people create. Hey, creators have to have appreciators.Right?
 I do love primitive decorating and antique hunting.  I love looking for just the right little pantry box or the perfect item to go on a shelf. My passion right now is old boxes. I will post pictures one day soon, as soon as I learn how,lol. I love old ferriers boxes and anything it looks like a horse nibbled on.
There is a sweet rottwieller, who lives Through My Back Door. He is the keeper of the property and protector of the back door. (The front too as  he gets upset when anyone comes to that door)lol.
Life is good Through My Back Door. I hope you will come and visit again.
