Doors of Italy

Today is all about the doors of Italy.

I love how so many of these huge doors have smaller doors within them…for the regular sized people.   🙂

Opening the door to France

Hi, I’m back!  Sorry for the long absence but I was travelling in Europe.  Doesn’t that sound posh, I was being terribly spoiled by my hubby for my upcoming birthday.  And I enjoyed every moment.  Travel is so inspiring.  I thought I’d share some photos that I took on my trip of some absolutely stunning doors.  It is one of my passions, finding incredibly amazing doors and doorways.

So here we go to France!

I realize this first one isn’t exactly a door but is a great archway don’t you think.  I am a sucker for all that age and texture.

Also please excuse all the parked cars in the photos, it is virtually impossible to get a photo of a doorway in France or Europe without a car or motorcycle parked in front of it.

I think this one above is my favourite! I love the carvings and those faces in the stonework above the door along with the greenery and ironwork are just spectacular!

I also realize this one below is not technically a door but it’s such a great entrance I couldn’t resist.  Can you imagine coming home from work everyday to THAT?

This one above doesn’t quite give you the warm and fuzzy welcoming vibe, does it?  It was in a castle and I believe, meant to scare anyone away from knocking or using a battering ram.

Stay tuned for the Italian doors!
