Thursday doors…Tlaquepaque

My parents used to live in Sedona, Arizona, a beautiful spot filled with New Agers and their crystals, art galleries, and stunning scenery. One of my favorite places is Tlaquepaque Arts & Crafts Village, usually just known as Tlaquepaque, a mixture of art galleries, restaurants, and shops of all sorts. The “village” itself is a work of art, a gorgeous melange of flowers, desert plants, and southwest architecture. As I love all three, I love visiting there. Here’s a door I would be happy to have where I live, although it would look distinctly odd anywhere in our rental house!Β  There is, of course, a matching half tucked out of sight.

    Love the detail on the door and the tiles are gorgeous too!

  2. Dan Antion says:

    That is a handsome door for sure.

  3. dimlamp says:

    Lovely decorative door. πŸ™‚

  4. thirdeyemom says:

    What a beautiful door Janet!

  5. I agree, what an amazing door

    • Thanks, Raewyn. Just home from a very long but good day at work and off to praise team practice shortly. Can’t wait to see other entries. This is such an enjoyable challenge.

    Oooh you’re gonna get my attention with wood carvings like that every time – love it! And I’d guess those puppies must weigh close to 500 lbs.

  7. Great architectural design … I would love to go to Tlaquepaque.
    I’m putting it on my Bucket List. 😎

  8. I love the detail in the detail, but then I really love Sedona.

  9. I use to go to Sedona as a kid when it a sleepy little town. Beautiful well framed door πŸ˜‰

  10. This door screams craftsmanship – handsome choice. πŸ™‚

    • Thanks, Judy. There is so much in the place itself that gives me pleasure. The shopping is almost secondary. I don’t often buy much there, but there are many wonderful stores and galleries.


  11. Such attention to detail! Most people wouldn’t give their doors a second (or let’s admit it, a first) thought, so I love the handiwork that went into this beauty.

    • Someone took great pride in their work and the company that built the complex obviously didn’t spare expense. Makes it a pleasure to shop or browse there, that’s for sure.

    Wow! What a beaut! Visiting Sedona is on my bucket list, and I would FOR SURE visit that villiage!

    • Even if you don’t buy anything, Marian, it’s fun to browse and enjoy the scenery. You’ll love it.


      • marianallen says:

        Ah, I see you know me already. But I suspect even I would loosen the purse strings there. πŸ˜‰

      • I’m rather tight about buying as well, but I’ve gotten a few pairs of earrings and, years ago, an Indian wedding vase for my husband. There are affordable things as well as things you would love to buy but either don’t have room for, won’t spend the money or simply don’t need.

  13. Helen Jones says:

    This is a beautiful door, Janet – I’d love to have it in my house as well. The photo feels as though it could be one of several places around the world – nice to hear it is in Sedona, somewhere I’ve always wanted to visit πŸ™‚ Happy weekend to you.

    • Happy weekend to you, too, Helen. If you had a southwest style wall, this would be the perfect set of doors to have…or if you had a very big house. Hope you get to Sedona one day. The scenery is much better even than the town.

      • Helen Jones says:

        Yes, they’d look a little out of place in my very English terraced home πŸ™‚ Still, I can dream… Hope I get to Sedona one day too πŸ™‚

    what a wonderfully crafted door.

What do you think? I'd love to hear your thoughts on this, that or the other thing.
