A Case for Closed Doors...Open Windows?

Last Saturday I found a treasure at the local flea market!
Can you see what it is?

This lovely glass doorknob and latch was sitting there on a vendor's table, 
calling out to me it seemed.  I knew it was meant for me.
Thankfully, the gentleman came down on his price and accepted my most reasonable offer.

Do you see the heart shining in the glass knob? I knew it was just "beating" for me! 
Perhaps a Valentine from the past?

I love how there is a little worn spot on the face of the doorknob...it shows that it was used many times to open a door to...who knows?  A master bedroom? A special closet? With that lock on it, perhaps a front door? The possibilities are limitless...what do you think?

Trying to get a better view of how it would look on an old door, this is actually on our workshop door...isn't it interesting? What is it about old glass doorknobs and old doors that speaks to me so?

Perhaps this is a case for "Closed Doors, Open Windows" to solve.

Someday I hope to find a special location for this unique door knob and latch. When I do,
you can bet you'll be the first to see it here. So stay tuned to
"Closed Doors, Open Windows" for all future developments!!

Matthew 7:7-8
"Ask, and it will be given to you;
Seek, and you will find;
Knock, and it will be opened to you.
For everyone who asks receives,
and he who seeks finds,
and to him who knocks it will be opened."


  1. Gasp! Somewhere in your future is a door that needs to be opened. Now you're ready!

    1. Oh yes!! Thank you for those words of blessing and encouragement, and dare I say, "prophecy?" God knows!!

  2. You will find a special spot for it. It is a great old piece. I love old doorknobs and hardware. I can see I am not alone! xo Diana

  3. Beautiful! love glass knobs, can't wait to see what you do with it.

  4. Nice. When I was a little girl we thought of them as diamonds!
    It would look nice just about anywhere.

  5. That glass door knob is a treasure, Pamela. I recall those being in my grandparents' home. Do keep us posted regarding its future use.

  6. Whatever appeals to you!
    I'm glad of the opened door Christ set before us.

  7. I love it!! It will look good anywhere, I would prefer to keep it in the house where I could enjoy seeing it throughout the day. I have one, just the knobs without the lock. I use it as a paperweight on my desk. Be sure and let us know where it finds its forever home!!

  8. I remember those glass door knobs and also ceramic ones! You will find the perfect place for it.

  9. Pam, I love old door knobs and locks, too. This house was built in the 1940's and the original door with the door knob and intricate plate was still in tact when we bought the house. We replaced the old door last spring and I had so wanted to save it all, but when my husband started taking it apart it just fell apart in his hand. The knob wasn't as pretty as yours...it was the old brown glass, but the plate was so intricate and that was what I loved about it. Oh, well. I certainly have enjoyed viewing yours. :)

  10. Pam, what a sweet find you made at the flea market. The glass doorknob is cool; can't wait to know what you do with it--keep us posted!
