It’s spring fever. That is what the name of it is. And when you’ve got it, you want—oh, you don’t quite know what it is you do want, but it just fairly makes your heart ache, you want it so!
― Mark Twain

It was such a spring day as breathes into a man an ineffable yearning, a painful sweetness, a longing that makes him stand motionless, looking at the leaves or grass, and fling out his arms to embrace he knows not what.
John Galsworthy, The Forsyte Saga

Sometimes it just takes one and nothing else can match it.  This door from Luxeuil-les-Bains, France was the one for me and, I hope, for you in this edition of Thursday Doors.  It felt very Audrey Hepburn.

Fashions fade, style is eternal.
Yves Saint Laurent

One of our voyages of exploration in the Haute-Saône led us to an interesting trifecta:  a chapel, a church, and a chalot in Saint-Bresson.  The chapel is what originally caught our attention and caused us to pull over.

The chapel Saint-Brice, neogothic style, dates from the nineteenth century. There was, in Saint-Bresson, a very old chapel dedicated to Saint Brice. During a cholera epidemic, Father Cardot vowed to St. Brice to repair the chapel if cholera did not return. The work was completed in March 1856.
