I’ve finally remember to join Norm’s “Thursday doors” challenge.  Last year when we were in France, our flight home originated in Basel, Switzerland.  We were fortunate to meet poet, artist, and fellow blogger, Claudia Schoenfeld, who showed us around her beautiful city and, although we didn’t have as much time as we would have liked, we had a wonderful time, viewing a plethora of beautiful doors, many on homes dating back hundreds of years.  I’ll start with this one.

    Beautiful old door.

  2. Europe knows how to do doors don’t they? 🙂

    Welcome to Thursday Doors Janet and what a fine door you have shared. This is the second door this week to feature curved panels and these are beautiful. I like the way the door echos the (wood/metal/stone?) work above the doorway. Great job!

    That is a lovely door – very good choice indeed. So glad you could join us this week. You’re welcome whenever you want to join in 🙂

    • Thanks, Norm. Just got home from a very full day of work, so tomorrow I’ll be doing some door viewing. Looking forward to it and to participating in the upcoming weeks.


  5. I’m a big fan of variations in door designs, especially found in Europe. That’s a gorgeous example of a wooden door created with whimsy–looks art nouveau.

    • Sally, there are so many lovely doors in Europe! One of these days, I’m going to walk around downtown Naperville where all the fancy houses are and take photos of the doors there.

    Lovely doors, interesting that the door-knobs are not along the edge of the doors.

    Amazing! They look very heavy.

    Very nice choice to share with us!

    Is that the doorbell hanging down on the right hand side? The filigree or perhaps just a knotted cord? Incredible door well photographed

    What a great find Janet! Great capture!

  12. Beautiful door to start off with Janet! Even the bell pull is beautiful !
