A Joyful, Bubbling Door



The initials on this door are J and B...I don't know what they stand for, but I would say anyone with those initials would be proud to think that such a nice door carries their name (well, sort of!!). This door is attractive in it's own right, but what I, personally, find appealing about it is that the door is not just rectangular shaped, but has an odd shape that goes up in the center to form a sort of arc then drops back down again for the non-opening side of the door. Ok, so you aren't as excited as I am about it, I can accept that, but you do have to admit that it does have character!


The wrought-iron work is delicate and happy (I know, how can an object be 'happy'?...you don't want to get me started on that!!) and has just the right balance of gilding to make you ALMOST believe you can hear the door giggling! And how about that door handle...is that not a very respectable door handle? Yes, it most definitely is! I do like this door!

Wow we think the J B stands for 'Just Beautiful'
I love the creamy yellow paint of the frame and the gorgeous iron working on the door. It looks like a well cared for and loved door.

I think you describe the door well...it does look happy, with it's graceful curves, the carved leaves and the glow of the gilding! I loved the door instantly!
