Thursday Doors…seeing red

On Thursday Doors we often say there’s “just something about a red door”, so let’s indulge today and go red. We recently drove to Carefree, Arizona (isn’t that a great name?) and after our business was done, spent a little time walking around. This tea shop is one I’ve seen before but never tried and as it wasn’t open, that remains the same. It is a little frou-frou for me but it has a red door, so…

They also had what’s probably a faux British telephone booth but it is that iconic red. Sorry about being in the shot but there wasn’t much I could do. But I’m not the only one there.

Look who’s inside!

We had an amazing lunch at the unprepossessing Indian Village in Cave Creek. But when you see the tacos for your Indian tacos made by hand in the small kitchen, you can be pretty sure you’re in the right place. Indian tacos have as their base fry bread, a flat dough bread fried or deep fried, then topped with taco ingredients or with powered sugar or other sweet toppings. My husband even got a hot dog wrapped in fry bread which he raved about. But doors. Yes. This sign was on the door, so that counts, right? 🙂

  1. I need this sign. yes. I do.

    Red doors, the Queen, cowboy humor, you’ve got everything, Janet. This is a great post. Carefree, Arizona reminds me of a Twilight Zone episode about a guy who could raise the dead. It’s set in Happiness, Arizona. Has the same kind of feel.

    Very nice. Although I prefer a blue police box over a red phone box.

  5. Lovely red, and that sign is a hoot! Love to try those tacos.

  6. I do love red doors. They seem inviting, like rolling out a permanent red carpet.

    Excellent sign, too. 😉

  7. LOL! I love that sign! Too funny. The red door at top is lovely. I also enjoyed looking at the tables on either side. Do you think the white one was a diy repurpose and made from different bits of furniture? It’s so unique. I like it!

    How nice to see the late Queen while on your walk. 👑

  8. Red doors really are cheerful! And auspicious too, they say.
    Oh, good, I think I saw a ghost!

  9. Oh my, the sign, lol! I love that tea house red door, and always love the British phone booths. Enjoyed your ‘Carefree’ tour of the doors.

  10. I agree, and those are terrific examples. Hugs!

    I like a message that is straight to the point.

    I love brightly colored doors! And that is a great name for a town. (K)

  13. I do love the name of the city: Carefree! Is that the queen inside the phone booth? The tacos sound yummy. I like the sign. It’s to the point, very practical. 🙂

    We saw one of those Indian taco places advertised along the highway in Arizona last spring. We almost stopped, but I’d been curious ever since. The town looks like it has a good sense of humor. Fun post.

    The wreath hanger with the deer head is unusual. I like red doors, all of them. This one is especially pretty.

    Love this! And that tea shop is excellent, by the way. We will have to go one of these days. I even took my cousin who lives in Belfast, and he raved about the crumpets. The owners are very friendly and the food is good. If you forget your “proper” hat, they have some for you. My granddaughter loved it.

    • Okay, I’ll overlook the flowers if possible and meet you there sometime for tea and crumpets. 🙂 Sounds delightful and soon it will be nice enough to sit outside to enjoy them. Besides there are lots of other things to see around there. I do have a proper hat, BTW, and more than just one!!

    lovely red door and quite unexpectedly a red phone box!

  18. Love the first red door, beautiful! And, those phone boxes are totally nostalgic, lovely!
