Historic Tucson

Ron and I went to the car show at the convention center the morning and on our way home we drove through a historic neighborhood called El Presidio.  This area of Tucson was once surrounded by large walls to protect the inhabitants from the Apache Indians.  The walls are long gone but some of the old historic adobe homes remain.


You all know I love houses. . . . . but doors are a favorite of mine too.  I don't know when I've ever seen anything more simple and yet beautiful decorating the front of a house before.


Another beautiful example of preserving the past here in Tucson.

Nothing fancy, that's for sure, but striking against the white.  Beauty is in the eye of the beholder and I think they are spectacular! 

Happy Stitching,
Diane

  9. I love those doors! One of the things I liked most about living in Albuquerque was looking at the old adobe-style building... simple pleasures :)
