Doors of the Family Picture #ThursdayDoors

Talk about an odd family tradition: Just about everybody in my husband’s family has Pieter Bruegel the Elder’s Hunters in the Snow on the wall. I believe it started with my husband, who had seen the original in Europe and bought and hung a print.

Here’s a picture of the picture:

I went up close and personal to gather some doors for you.

Yes, all our daughters have the picture, too. #4 Daughter, the amazing Sara Marian, just moved to a new house and sent me a snappie of the new location of hers.


Thursday doors is the brainchild of Norm Frampton, photographer extraordinaire. Visit his site, enjoy his wonderful photographs, follow his directions, and enter a world of doors.

A WRITING PROMPT FROM ME TO YOU: Write about looking for something in the winter. Or in a painting.



I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.

    That’s a wonderfully door-full picture. Who’d have thought?

      When the going gets canceled, the dooristas get creative. 😀
