Behind Every Door There Is A Story–Beth Trissel

I love old doors, all sorts, large, small, quaint, cozy, bold, dramatic…Such mystery. What secrets they may hide. I also collect images of doors. Here’s my latest find. This one really stirs the imagination.

Sometimes life presents us with the challenge of choosing between doors, not knowing what awaits us on the other side.  Once a door is opened, there may be no going back. Making that choice and stepping through takes courage, faith, and hope.

“No pessimist ever discovered the secret of the stars, or sailed to an uncharted land, or opened a new doorway for the human spirit.”
Helen Keller

“Every now and then one paints a picture that seems to have opened a door and serves as a stepping stone to other things.”
― Pablo Picasso

About BethTrissel

Married to my high school sweetheart, I live on a farm in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia surrounded by my children, grandbabies, and assorted animals. An avid gardener, my love of herbs and heirloom plants figures into my work. The rich history of Virginia, the Native Americans and the people who journeyed here from far beyond her borders are at the heart of my inspiration. In addition to American settings, I also write historical and time travel romances set in the British Isles. And nonfiction about gardening and country life.

  6. I have a thing for doors, too, & thought you might find this interesting…
    What your door color says about you:
    •Red: You’ve chosen the color of passion. Your door says the home inside is vibrant and “full of life, energy and excitement.”
    •Green: Your home is a place of health, safety, tranquility and harmony. This is a popular color.
    •Blue: This color, which may be the most popular, connotes home as sanctuary. A blue front door signifies that the home is calm, serene and relaxing.
    •Black: This color doesn’t signify depression or mourning but power. The owner of a black front door is sending a message of strength, sophistication and authority. His home is a serious place “inhabited by a person of substance.”
    •Brown: This color carries a mixed message. A brown front door, either painted or stained, may convey warmth, stability and reliability. Or maybe not. A dark-brown front door suggests a desire for privacy and isolation
