Walk along West Jefferson Avenue in downtown Naperville, Illinois and you’re certain to notice the door of Tasting DeVine, selling wine from the Lynfred Winery, Illinois’ oldest.  We’ve never gone in for a tasting, but the door itself is certainly tasty.

So many (Thursday) doors, so little time!

  5. Wow, stunning work. Thank you for sharing!

  6. joey says:

    Wow. Such amazing carving!

  7. That carving causes my mind to wander to a visual of a craftsman standing over that slab of wood and creating that beautiful artwork with a few chisels. Impressive. Thanks for sharing. 🙂

  8. My goodness, there’s a whole book written on those doors – they’re beautiful works of art.

    Wow, beautiful wood sculpture designs!
    I guess it’s just a matter how one does a post – I do have a meme/challenge Seasons, running from Mon-Wed., but at the same time I have a weekly post for at least half of the challenges in one post. Before I ran the meme, I had a weekly theme fitting all the challenges during the week:)
    It is my way to have a cohesive story per week and to save time.

    Beautiful detail on the door!!

  14. Splendid workmanship on those doors Janet – don’t think I’d be able to resist a wine-tasting!

    Lots of work and creativity went into the making of this door. Probably almost as much as went into the photographing of it.
    This is a fun one. Great find.
