I've heard this before. The door and the floor creaks.

Have a terrific day. ☺

Scary- & doors that screech are scary!

Somebody hide the key, quickly! Things like that used to scare me, too.

Helen said...

Now ... you have added an unexpected element to the artwork this week!

I can hear the creaky floor.

What is it about a screeching door that's so scary? It must be that we associate it with all those scary movies :-)

Martin said...

Impending bloom, Kathe!

Is there a peephole?

Little Nell said...

Is somebody up to no good? Creeping about on tiptoe?

Stephen Hayes said...

But in spite of the lock it looks like such a pretty door. Wonderful economy of words.

Celia said...

Looks to tempting to pass up, creaks and all.

Lyn said...

Brrrr....I'm heading for the back door!! You got me with this one!

Linda said...

I like that you were able to create an edgy expression with so few words. Well done Kathe. Thank you for sharing.

Oh, I hate creaky floors! I'd be watching for sure.

Sue said...

Ooooh. Is it haunted??

Helena said...

I'd be tiptoeing my way to lock that door. As if a locked door could keep a ghost out mind you, but I'd give it a darned good try!
