Following the advice of WHO and in solidarity with the lovely people of Italy, I am in self-quarantine until, of course, we run out of gin. So today, I’m inviting you to my house ….
Come a little closer; I won’t bite …
This solid wood door was originally a dull shade of beige but then I discovered Beet Bonanza Delight. The Jade plant to the side has endured all sorts of torture, including lack of sun but is still holding on. Amazing. The figure greeting you at the door with the ears and the antlers is a reindeer, of course, left over from a Christmas long ago. He actually provides a good place to hang wet garden gloves, tools and umbrellas.
Swinging from the lamp is Guard Toad First Class, Edmond Von Petty. He has ESP.
If he senses that you have a black heart or want money, his chimes begin to quiver in warning to Greta Gecko who wishes to keep her rank a mystery.
Since you all have golden hearts and want no money from me (I hope), you may press Greta’s button without fear of being zapped.
Have you brought your card? Well, there’s always room on the fridge.
Yes, I’m one of those crazy people who tacks everything on her frig.
I also planted an Australian fern right next to the front door because I love ferns.
Unfortunately these ferns can reach 16 feet high and wide. He’s also very affectionate and so watch out as you leave!
Sorry you have to go so soon but I know you have other doors to check out over at Norm’s Place. Come again.

LOVE Beet bonanza delight. Thanks for the tour! Stay healthy, my friend.
It’s a lovely shade of beet, isn’t it? To get that amount of saturation took about four coats though!
Love your door – sturdy enough for California:) My goodness the Australian fern looks big, and thriving! Am glad I visited today:)
I guess I didn’t read the planting instructions thoroughly. I just thought how lovely to look out the kitchen window and see a fern instead of the driveway! Now the darn things are stretching out on the roof!
Sorry – some mistakes have big consequences, lol!
Loved this tour. Thank you. Stay safe.
Thank you. We will. You stay safe as well!
Nice assortment of critters.
Do you have plenty of Lysol and/or Clorox wipes, bleach, sugar, rice, TP and ginger ale? That seems to be the missing items at stores when I ventured out Monday. SMDH.
I think it’s silly to panic so no, I’m not stockpiling. If you need those supplies I hope you can find them someplace!
I was after other things. I was amused as I was shopping.
I AM upping my intake of Vitamin C, tho…
It’s a lovely home, JT. Since this is support of Italy, shall I bring over some Chianti and lasagna?
That would be lovely! Thanks!
Thanks for sharing! This is all lovely and shows your personality.
Since those of us of a certain age are supposed to be in self-isolation, why not show our own front doors!
Wonderful to see your own front door today, Jan, and all the curious critters who adorn the area. Thanks for letting us drop by.
You’re welcome anytime!
Your front door is perfect. I love that color. I feel the same way as you do about self-quarantine. I’ll do it until the beer runs out here. One must have priorities.
Luckily many people can work and study from home – back in the other pandemics that wasn’t an option. I think that fact alone should be enough for cautious optimism but people seem to like to panic, don’t they?
They sure do! 🙄
The beet-red door is terrific. Great choice of color. See you!
Thank you – it was a lucky choice.
Cute! Thank you for having me! *gets handsy with the fern*
I love your door!
I’ve got to stop buying plants just cause they’re pretty and learn to read the instructions!
Loved the tour! Thanks for inviting us over to visit!
I do understand the comment about until the gin runs out. Over the years (since the massive power outage in the northeast), I’ve developed a bit of an Armageddon stockroom, and alcohol features highly in my supplies. When I have to resort to drinking liqueurs I’ll know things are getting dire 😉
I was raised in the mountains and so we generally have enough food on hand to last at least a month. My children, on the other hand, have never gotten the message!
I think until they really experience what shortage means, the younger generations won’t get the message. My sons are the same.
I love your house and I love to visit again 💜💜
Great! Next time, I’ll make you some tea!
Excellent thank you 💜
When life hands you a lemons, you make lemonade! Creative and entertaining solution and I love the color of the door!
Thank you Maggie! We have to try to keep our spirits up these dark days!
Nice door. Thanks for inviting us over. I understand self-quarantine, so I’ll leave the gin on the porch 😉
Thanks Dan! Take care – we are all in this together.
Thank you for the tour!
You’re more than welcome! Come again!
That is a lovely door Jan. Thanks for the tour. Hopefully next time it will be safe enough to come in a stay for tea (or gin) – I’ll even bring fresh-baked cookies 😉
Our provincial government officials are now suggesting that for safety’s sake people like me with weakened systems should do the self-isolation thing too, so we may keep each other company from a distance.
I like that idea! Yum! I’ve had pneumonia twice and so when I found out it was a respiratory flu, I decided not to take a chance. The rains have returned and the cold so it doesn’t feel like that much of an imposition to stay inside!
Thanks for welcoming us into your home 👍🏼
Love the door AND color, but needs some prettifying (more junk on the door : )) haha. HI Twiz!
Surely the gin will cure what ails ya?! Hang in there!!
Love the door! Thank you for sharing 💕
Thanks for the invite! I brought a potted bridal fern!
Love your red door and all the rest of it❣️ glad you’re listening to WHO.
