An Emily Door...almost!



This cute little 'Emily Door' is located down the street from the Prague Castle (Hradcany) on a very touristy street. All along this street are stores selling such tourist treasures as marionettes, ceramic and enamel cups and mugs, glass/crystal items (of all kinds), hats, postcards, paintings and photographs and on and on, but tucked in between those stores are doors. Just doors, because while the street level has all the stores, there are still the levels higher up that have apartments and homes and those places have to be accessed...thus, the existence of doors like this one. I like this simple little door. It is made of a warm-colored wood, a funky hand-made handle and over top, it has a sort of pseudo-overhang to offer slight refuge to someone standing in the doorframe if the rain comes...but only if it is just raining a little!! The pink wall seems to add to the charm of the door rather than take away from it and you have to love the flower-shaped pull handle which somewhat replicates the flower relief designs in the door's stone frame.
