Blue Door

     Think of these like the spirit gates, the blue is to deter evil spirits.  I know someone who is currently remodeling a 1800's adobe.  They found small glass bottles/vials inside of the walls around each window.  They had some sort of herbs in them.  They were put in there for protection when the home was built.  The people showed me one, the rest they returned to the walls.

It is the details that intrigue me.  This is an old adobe from 1865.

Notice how the blue in the door matches the sky?

This door has traces of blue paint remaining....
