Vanishing Threshold: Windows Into Doors

Soon, this pair of windows in the breakfast room, below, will be doorways


leading to a new room overlooking the pool & Woodland House.


The hutch, above, will stay.

Garden & Be Well,  XO Tara

Pics taken last week at a jobsite.  Will show how its impacting the living room next.

Again, Tara'izing a garden has turned windows into doors and home/garden into Vanishing Threshold.  She & I always knew we were heading inside for the garden.  Her husband?  He had been merely concerned about the new stone step to the porch.  Now he knows why we merely smiled at his questions.  As the wicked sea monster  in The Little Mermaid said, "Poor unfortunate soul."

Dear Tara,

I wanted to thank you for coming to visit my blog. I am honored to have anyone come to take the time to read my simple words or look at the beautiful images that are not mine. I am especially intrigued when a professional author comes to leave a kind message and so, I would like to extend my gratitude for your beautiful words this morning. We are all learning about life, the greatest skill of all.

YOUR BOOKS LOOK FABULOUS! I am just out the door to do some clipping of my boxwood hedges and cleaning my thyme garden!

GARDEN ON! Anita

Here is a prediction! I think that husband will enjoy those doors and that "vanishing threshold" as much as anyone!!

Great idea!!

Tara....love your wording for posting! Have been lurking around for a bit, but now need to tell you how much insight I have gained about what I shall do here in MY outdoor space
now that I have been spurred on again! N.xo

LOL you go Tara! Oh how I love everything in this house that you've shown us...most especially I love that HUTCH. Oh goodness...that's EXACTLY what I hope to find one day. Those doors will be wonderful connecting the garden/pool area with the inside of the house...the 'vanishing threshold'!! One day I would love to do that with our dining room window...put French Doors going out onto a deck that steps down to a pretty garden. One day ;)
Right now I have to concentrate on getting that 'round pen' built!
