Paris – Doors Part Cinq

This will be the last set of Parisian doors for this trip.  I hope you have enjoyed the doors I have chosen to share on this Thursday Door tour through Paris.  They are a beautiful source of inspiration and happiness for me.  And many thanks to Norm for his challenge which provides me an excuse to share them with you.

The wisteria was just beginning to bloom while we were in Paris which attracted me to all sorts of gates.  If only it had been this lovely in Giverny…

Imagine the history this door has seen.

I love this worn knocker.

Something like this would be blight where I live but it is living art and not to be messed with elsewhere in the world. Doors like this keep me traveling.

Paris -Doors part Trois

I hope you enjoy a nice mix of interesting doors from Paris.  Doors that go nowhere, covered passage doors, old doors, and door knockers.  Enjoy.

How cool is this door? It was actually part of a building at once time which has long since been torn down. The French people chose to keep the door. It is just standing there all by itself. I LOVE that.

Surely door knockers can be considered?

Oldest building in Paris.

Paris – Doors Part Deux

There are so many parts of traveling I enjoy.  Architecture is one of them.  And Doors make a big impact on architecture.  France makes a solid effort at keeping their doors real for sure.

I mean seriously?  Look at this door.  It’s perfect in color, shape, ivy, knob, button…I need to know who lives here.  😉

Not your typical french style door.

Makes you wanna know what’s behind it doesn’t it?

I think a gate can count as a door when there are flowers this pretty behind it.

I don’t even remember where I saw this door but I love everything about it.

Paris – Doors (Notre Dame)

It’s Thursday!  I have been looking forward to this all week.

Below are a few of my favorite doors from my recent trip to Paris.  There are too many to share in one post so I will likely provide more in coming weeks.  I hope you enjoy.  And as always, I come home from a trip like this wanting to replace the door on my own house…

Door outside the Notre Dame. This door has actually made an appearance on my blog once before. But, look at it! It is magnificent.

Gold Country Drive – Doors & Windows Edition

The California Gold Country boasts lots of beautiful shop-filled main streets in various states of revitalization or disrepair.  But, one thing is for sure…no one wants to throw out a great old door or window with some personality.  Join me and get a feel for what its like to walk by the Gold Country main streets of the 1850s.  Do you have anything like this where you live?

Visit Norm 2.0 for other examples of greats Doors on Thursday!
