Christmas Eve – Thursday Doors

As I mentioned earlier this month, there will be no official Thursday Doors post today, or next Thursday. If you have doors to share, you are welcome to leave a link in the comments, but I may not review them until after the holidays.

I’d also like to remind everyone that there is still time to enter our Badge Contest. As of the post, we have seven entries. Candidates must be received by 11:59 pm Thursday, December 31st (North American Eastern Time), and voting will begin the following morning. Early voting was not approved.

It’s Christmas Eve, and I’d like to wish all who celebrate Christmas a very merry day tomorrow. The photo that I am sharing today is of doors, in a sense. The three buildings shown below belonged to my mother. We discovered them when we were sorting through her things after her death. They seemed ordinary and we couldn’t attach any special meaning to them. I decided to keep them. They have been wrapped in bubble-wrap ever since.

The church is reminiscent of the church my mother was a member of for over 75 years. It was the church in which she was married, and my brother and I were baptized. It was the church whose pastor spoke at her funeral. Maybe that’s what she liked about this little scene.

Merry Christmas!

The buildings sitting on top of the book case I made earlier this year.


  1. I know we’ve already said it a few times already, but Merry Christmas, Dan! I’m glad you kept the little buildings, they’re obviously very special and deserve to be looked after and enjoyed for many more years to come.

  3. So many memories are wrapped up in those three buildings Dan. The best memory? Your mom! I’m so glad you didn’t discard them. To sit these buildings on the bookcase you made is just perfect.

    Merry Christmas Dan, and the Editor and Faith, and, of course, the 3 M’s. May the joy of the season override all that’s occurred this year and take you to a peaceful and healthy New Year.

    • Thanks Ginger. We’re all sending love and happy holiday wishes to you and yours (Murphy included). The coming rain may wash away the snow, but it can’t wash away our spirit.


  4. Merry Christmas, Dan, to you, Faith, and the Editor. It’s been a strange year but we’ve somehow managed to weather the various storms this year has tossed at us. I’m grateful that we are ending this year with hope for the new one ahead. Be well!

  5. Merry Christmas, Dan. Those little buildings are special. Merry Christmas to the Editor, Faith, Maddie, MiMi, and MuMu. I would list all the outdoor family members, but I have to take Twiggy for a walk, and she is jumping up and down. Happy New Year too.

    • Thanks Natalie. I’d like to replace that wallpaper at some point, but I agree, it works well with these. I guess, if I switch to paint, I’ll have to pick a color that goes with these buildings. Merry Christmas.
