number seven

By aitchbrown
What we in the north of England call a 'coal hole'. A purely Victorian invention for the convenience of the householder. These little doors are often ignored in the refurbishment of houses and they eventually fall into disrepair over the years until they morph, in my opinion, into an obscure art form all of their own. I once heard them described by a small child as 'giant doors to a cupboard where fairies keep their carriages'.

So bearing the child's view in mind, I've done a bit of photoshopping to make this forgotten door into a desirable entrance to a fairy cupboard.

thanks for being here - Helen x

Could be--- there was one in our old house---which a groundhog found useful--- We cemented him OUT!

and the door was very plain, not at all fancy!
