CYAN ENIGMA



This small blue beautiful is a gift from far-ago and long-away---just arrived yesterday from a blog friend, from her great store-house of marvels.  Of its use and history, I've had several guesses---for the most, "Fairy Door, of course."

Anyone else recognize one of these?  And if you always HAD one, accept my great covetry.   And no, the tiny nail-hole at the top did not support a wee half-moon.

And of it all, moiré non.

For the answer to the conundrum, see next post: PO' FOLKS CALLIN' CARDS.

Linking to Beverly's PINK SATURDAY.

Susie,

I have plans for it on my pink kitchen wall, right over the little furniture from my dollhouse.

Never noticed the hole but I wonder if that is where the pencil went?

Donna,

The hole goes all the way through, and that's where I'm going to drive the nail through to the wall. Much more on Monday, about how I came to love these, etc., and of the lovely gift.

I believe that it is a doorway to a fairy garden.

It looks like a miniature of Ye Olde Outhouse....lol...YOu do have to share now, you know. A place to leave a note perhaps? xo Diana

Such a charming parcel you have received Dear Rachel! Some may refer to that as Tiffany Blue but I would value anything it contained, especially now in your alchemistic hands, as far more valuable than anything on offer at that tony jeweler.

Looks like it would have hung by the front door for a door key, likely the old skeleton key.

I think it is a magic fairy door! Can't wait to see how you incorporate it into your home!

Happy Pink Saturday, my most dear Rachel. I know I am late getting here, but I must tell you that this post is being featured on my Pink Saturday post this week as "the one that caught my eye".

And, catch my eye it did. I do believe I know what this is because I remember seeing something similar on the porch of a few of my grandmother's "old lady" friends. She used to laugh at me because I called them old ladies. But, look, now I am one, too. My guess is it is a place to leave a note saying you visited, but no one came to the door. Sorry I missed you.
