My Painted Door
Welcome to My Painted Door. This is where I write about and share photos of all the things that I love. Painting, photography, gardening, treasure hunting and, of course, old doors.
By accident, or perhaps by fate, I live in the lovely tourist village of Kakabeka Falls, Ontario. About five years ago I was on a walkabout with my camera and discovered an old general store with a for sale sign in the window. I peeked through the window and fell in love with the old building and moved in 6 weeks later. The old general store is now My Painted Door.
My place has an abundance of character but she needs a lot of work. Thankfully, I am a patient gal and will putter away until it is done.
Here I'll share my journey with you making this place all that I dream it will be - my home, my shop and my garden.
Thank you for stopping by!
1930's photo of Mark Leiterman & Sons General Store, Kakabeka Falls, Ontario. This is now my home and my shop.
My Painted Door is located at 49 Clergue Street in Kakabeka Falls, Ontario. (Just a short drive west of Thunder Bay). It's the big, old white building two doors down from the Credit Union. You can't miss it!
I am thrilled to be part of the Fusion Mineral Paint team! I am the lucky gal who photographs many of the Fusion images including Jennylyn's Tones for Tots.
It's wonderful to be able to create images like this. I get to paint, stage and take photos! Many of the "treasures" in the photos are things I have collected over the years. How fun is that?
