Thursday doors…next door

Luxeuil-les-Bains has a plethora of attractions, including les bains, the thermal baths that were enjoyed by Celts and Romans. I can show you two great bakeries, a coffee and tea shop for relaxation, a number of good restaurants (and several not so good), beautiful churches, an batch of sarcophagi, a bountiful farmers market on Saturday morning…and doors.

I’ve photographed quite a few doors over the last visits, so hopefully I’m not repeating myself (at least too much.) These three were almost next door to each other, making it easy for me.

You get some great tiles at no additional charge. Maybe we should have come back at night.

Two doors for the price of one and some fancy lace in the windows. Oh, yeah, and those flowers!

A lovely railing can only enhance.

If you have any doors you’d like to contribute, you’re always welcome to join in.  Just go through the magic door to Norm’s place in Montreal.  There you can link your post or just browse the variety of doors from around the world.

  1. This is what I love about France and Italy. Beauty in the simple things. Love photos of doorways!

    • Yes, they both have lovely doors and lots of simple beauty. I appreciate your taking time to comment as well as visit. I always enjoy visiting my s-i-l in France and it gives me a chance to get photos of some great doors as well.

    These are each so interesting, I love doors

  3. You had my attention at coffee shops and coffee houses, but then I was fully alert at that concrete planter between the two doors. Nice. 🙂

    The 2nd door gets top marks from me. I love everything about it!

    I love the flower pots in front of the door! So pretty and welcoming.

    Envious you are in France! Love the doors, but Europeans must be changing! I can’t imagine a European would put stickers of butterflies, etc. on their windows! Maybe I’ve lived too long on this side of the pond, lol! Enjoy your coffee with croissant, or other pastry:)

    • Jesh, I’m back now, for just over a week. If you were able to zoom in on the windows in the second shot, as I can from Picasa, you’d see that the designs are in the lace, not stickers. However, we saw so rather odd decorations in places, including large butterflies (perhaps metal) on the outsides of houses and painted hubcaps in one village. 🙂

    Having yet to set foot in France I really feel like I’m missing something. Your pics and some of from others showing these charming little villages just confirms it for me 😀
    I love the shot with the blue tiles/sax player. I never though of The Blues and crepes going together before but hey, why not?

    Arched doors, transom windows, blue doors – you could repeat these all you like. These are beautiful. Sounds like the pastries were nice, too.

    Beauoooooooootiful! That two-fer with the lacy window and the flowers has to be favorite! 🙂

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