The back of my door is like a giant mood board of things i've collected, written and painted. I suppose it's kind of like a larger version of my journal, except i have to make sure everything actually looks semi-decent seeing as it's on display in my bedroom!
All of the old photographs you see in a vertical line down the left-hand side of the door are from a huge collection which my mum rescued from a boot fair. A lifetime of photographs from a couple, from the day they got married until the day they died, had been left unwanted and were being sold for $3. Looking through them all was so beautiful yet saddening; nobody wanted to keep what was essentially the memory of their lives. We didn't want them to be forgotten, regardless of whether we knew them or not, so we have kept the photos (unfortunately there were no names on the backs of them so we couldn't return them to family members) and i decided to use some of the scenic ones of the places they'd visited on holiday to put on display as some of them were absolutely beautiful.
The quote about the sea is by E.E. Cummings and is one of my favourites.
