Blue Monday



Ok...so it's not really blue...turquoise? Blue Monday just sounds better than Turquoise Monday. Either way, what a wonderful color to start off the week with!

This lovely, respectable door is not terribly old (in comparison to other doors), but it does have good clean lines, a bit of fantasy and is clearly influenced by the Art Deco period. Sure, it has not been treated terribly well and I'm guessing that the plain windows were probably once either stained glass windows or patterned glass both on the doors themselves and in the window squares above the doors. I found this door charming and it 'spoke' to me so I wanted to introduce you it to you.

Actually, Cecilia, this door goes into a store!! So I guess they've done right by painting it in an inviting color...they just tempt people in like a flower tempts a bee or butterfly!!

Tempting, that's the right word! for some reason, I see a smile on this door, maybe because of the iron work , or the color, I don't know.. But I see this door as sympathic, funny and smiling!

That's a happy door. I like the color and the smile that Malyss mentioned.
