Thursday doors…the wrong day

We’re back from the wedding, which was wonderful, but I’m sorry to say that this post should have come two days from now, on Sad-door-day.  Why sad?  Because the Thursday Doors group has been pipped at the post, lost on the nod, lost by a nose.  Why, you ask?  Because the other day at the library I found….



Waaaaaa!!  There’s goes our chance for fame and fortune.  The author should have been our Norman the Doorman, way up there in Montreal, with all of us as contributors.  But alas, it’s not to be (unless we decide to do a sequel which, since we didn’t do the first, couldn’t actually be a sequel, but…).

However, we will soldier on.  I offer you today a three-course prix fixe meal from Luxeuil-les-Bains. Bon appétit!

I do encourage you to look for the book at your local library.  It really does have lots of beautiful doors, so the author could join our group any time.  🙂

for Thursday Doors

  1. Beautiful doors, Janet. How interesting that you found this book. I think you should talk to Norman as your idea to write a book is actually feasible and a very good one.

  2. GM Janet,

    Again, congrats on the wedding.

    Well, you know what they say about doors, especially Door J’adore: one door closes and another one…

    As with most three-course meals, I cannot decide if entree or dessert is my favourite! Probably the last one, with its bold crosses.
    Maybe “Nick Rowell” is a pseudonym 😉
    But we’d probably end up with an encyclopaedia-worth of doors if we collated everyone’s contributions! How big was this book?

    • This is a fairly small book, but it does have many beautiful doors. We’d certainly have to get picky. Maybe we should put out a quarterly magazine instead. 🙂 Since there was a photo of the author, either Norm is using a fake photo or it’s not Norm. And I don’t recognize any of the doors. Fun to find it, though.

      Glad you enjoyed the meal and remember: no calories!!

    First off, congrats on the wedding!
    I seem to remember seeing this book or another one similar to it in a bookstore somewhere, quite some time ago. There are enough wonderful share-worthy doors in this world that we could always do our own door book too.

    • Of course, we could do a book, too. It was fun to find this one and fun to work it into my post today.

      The wedding couldn’t have been better and it was fun to have both sides of our family together, too.


    • Norm, you’re right, plenty of doors to go around and we can entitle it, The Back Door! I saw a Chinese photographer’s photo of all the doors he found in his travels in China a couple of years ago and that was pretty awesome. I even mentioned having you do a year end summary of doors in a post that Joey said was a good idea.

  5. JT Twissel says:

    I like the way you add your signature to the doors!

  6. I think the last door makes the list of most unusual. I’ve never seen one quite like that. 🙂 Yes, you’d think there’d at least be a footnote about our group. 🙂

  7. Dan Antion says:

    Not to worry, one man/book can’t compete with the doors Norm gathers each week. Not a chance.

    Glad you’re back. I left a comment on your other post that I guess included an incorrect temporal reference (as if you were still going) – Sorry, I’ve been playing catch-up on reading, commenting and answering stuff. I like doors that are split, so the middle one is a fav, but I also like transom windows.

    And now, for the correct temporal reference – I hope you have a great weekend!

    • In Wednesday’s post, since it was Wordless Wednesday, I didn’t say anything about being back and you weren’t the only one who thought I was still on the trip. As for the weekend, I work today, tomorrow, and Sunday, so it may not be great, but it should be good. 🙂 Hope yours is good as well.


  8. Janet, your selection of doors this week was fantastic!

  9. Su Leslie says:

    Idon’t totally get the door fascination, but love seeing these posts because everyone has such enthusiasm for the subject. It reminds me that in the UK when we lived there, tourist shops always seemed to sell postcards featuring a selection of “Irish doors” or “Scottish doors.”

  10. joey says:

    Oh! White door with transom! White door with transom! 🙂

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