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? 🙂

Thursday Doors 2.2.23

Red doors are certainly eye-catching and these three Philadelphia beauties caught not only my eye but my phone’s camera on a visit earlier this year. I present them now for your enjoyment on this September Thursday. I do wonder how it got to be September already when I’m pretty sure only 6 or 7 months have gone by this year.

This first one has a bonus door on the side, although not red. Sort of a reddish-brown, though.


I’ve decided this is the year I have to get “fluent” in French.  In September when I was visiting my s-i-l, her cleaning lady, who always attempts to talk to me (in French), asked my s-i-l when I was going to learn French.  I forebode to say that she still speaks no English, but determined to do better.  To that end, I’ve moved my Duolingo, TinyCards, and Google Translate apps to the first screen on my phone and iPad and am practicing a lot more.  So…

Ces portes de Plombières sont rouges (These Plombières doors are red.) Although I love finding the distressed doors that need some love, these doors are aussi très jolie (also very pretty.)

I had a necessary and needed break, but it’s great to be back and to catch up with all of you!  Happy New Year!

Behind one of my favorite thrift stores is this little shed that I think would make a great playhouse with the addition of a few windows, although perhaps there are some on the sides or in the back that I haven’t seen.  I like the sturdy look, the chimney (what’s inside that requires a chimney?), and of course, the red door.  For some reason, it makes me happy to see this shed, so I hope you enjoy it as well.  Happy Thursday to each of you!

Happy Christmas Eve Day!

‘Tis the time of the season for red and this door just down the block from our hotel in Basel is perfect for the season and Norm’s “Thursday doors” challenge.  I contemplated going out to get a photo of a beautifully decorated door here in Naperville, but the weather outside is frightful: windy, rainy (running the gamut from drizzle to thunderstorm and back), and grey.  So instead, I offer you this cheerful memory from last year’s visit to Basel and hope that you are getting ready to celebrate the season with family and friends.

Don’t forget that if you live in the Northern Hemisphere, the days are getting longer and if you live in the Southern, you’re enjoying summer.  🙂  I love snow for Christmas, but it’s not to be this year. I shall revel anyway!  Later today, we’ll be going out for lunch, the Christmas Eve service is at 5 pm, then we’ll head back home for appetizers, drinks, and opening whatever small things might be in our stockings.  A drive to look at Christmas lights will probably be fitted in as well.  Ahhhhhhhh.
