Maybe this will be the start of a new series – ¡Puertas Mexicanas! There are some amazing doors in Mexico, and especially in San Miguel de Allende. These doors are on a house a couple of blocks from ours. They are covered with milagros, which are charms used for protection and good luck, as part of a prayer for something signified by the milagro, or as a sign of gratitude if the prayer is granted. The literal meaning of the word milagro is miracle…the first time we went to buy vegetables from our vegetable lady, Rubina, after a 2-year absence, she looked at us and said “¡Que Milagro!” 😀
And check out what I found on our neighbor’s door! It looks like the security gate / screen door was custom-made or modified for the Schlage deadbolt, and there’s another one on the wood door behind it.
