Hey! Cheer Up!


As you can imagine, I am always on the look-out for doors, but for some reason I tend to be immediately attracted to doors that are made of wood...especially wood that isn't painted.


When I saw this door and went up close to it, I couldn't help but laugh when I saw the faces on it. They don't look terribly happy, but they do provoke one to smile due to their expressions!


I can't say what epoque this door is, but it is a rather interesting mixture of carvings...geometric, floral and figurative..at least the handle is simple and sober.

I am ceratin these are hand carved. The craftmanship is unreal! Beautiful! I use that word a lot on your blog. Sorry -- but I love doors and the ones you find are so cool! I like the large window above the door also.... Thank you for sharing your pictures. I look forward to seeing them.
