So I stayed all day thinking I was going to be the lone ranger waiting for the auctioneer to give me an incredible deal. Well "she" was there. I didn't see anyone looking at my door all day. Everyone would pass by it and look at the ones flanking it. Then the time came. It was just me and her. We duked it out. The price kept getting higher--past the original stopping point I had decided on. The auctioneer could see the uncertainty in my eye as I thought about the next bid. Then he said the magic words, "Come on! You didn't wait here all day in the pouring rain to let someone else buy your door!" And he was right, darn it. That was my door--get out the way, lady! So I won. And I got the door of my dreams--at a fraction of the "going rate" at that. So here it is:

|I love this lady's blog. Check it out when you have some free time. I also love the color of her front door.|
So what color would you pick? It's not as easy as you would think. There's just too many choices out there! But you better believe I will enjoy making up my mind.
