Doors to Nowhere

Oso Viejo
Doors to Nowhere
On the way back from San Miguel we stopped at a roadside junk yard
called Oso Viejo Antiques that sells gorgeous old wooden doors & curiosities.
I was immediately drawn to the fading coats of chipped paint.

Que dichosa de vivir donde vives. Los colores in Mexico siempre son tan vivos. Que envidia (pero de la buena).

do they cost much? I could see Anthropologie utilizing those for a store display.

What an interesting place to stop and spend some time. Those doors are not fantastic only for their asthetic value and patena, but look at the workmanship, patience and skill that went into each one.
They were not just slapped together like too much stuff is today. I love that you take us with you my dear Geninne. Hugs from Alaska.
