Pinheys Point Gift Bag

“Valley Views”-The Doorways

Welcome! That’s what doorways have always said to me. They are not only an entrance but an opportunity.

pinheys doorThis doorway is from the Pinhey’s Point Heritage site on the Ottawa River in Dunrobin. The site is maintained as a heritage site/museum and recreation area by the City of Ottawa and the Pinhey’s Point Foundation. I love seeing these grand old stone houses throughout the Ottawa Valley but sadly we are losing many of them.

church doorChurches are an important part of our valley history and were a focal point for many communities. This doorway represents the entrance to many of our gathering places.

The first project for the Edge of 17 Shop Hop is a wine bottle size gift bag featuring a doorway. A small gift placed in a hand made bag is a lovely way to say thank you for welcoming me!
