The Weekend in Black and White

My brother and sister-in-law bought this house
from a woman whose 
design aesthetic
(if I should even call it that
) ran to painfully
 bright paint colors
 and some very busy 1950s wallpaper.
They scraped and painted and made it their
own—but one thing they kept 
is a sign on the kitchen 
door that says, "Back door friends are best."

  1. Comes up beautifully in the black and white, dear Alexa. And I agree with their sign ~ my 'back fence neighbours' are the best !!

  2. Hello Alexa,

    What a beautiful image this is looking through the net curtain.

    It sounds as if your brother and his wife had a challenging time making this house their home, but the sign is perfect and it is good that it was given a stay of execution. We love it when people pop in but that is not the Hungarian way, sad to say. However, when virtual friends become real ones........then they are the best!

    Happy Weekend!

    1. So true, especially when they are as welcoming—and fun—as you!

  3. Great photo of really beautiful lace curtains. I love the light!

  4. Like the way the light comes through those lace curtains. Those curtains are traditional of an earlier age.

  5. Wonderful B&W of lovely lace!
