I know. I said I was done with tiny doors but this week I had fun playing with editing in order to share these little doors. I haven’t been back to Redondo Beach yet, so where did I find them? Well…

…my late mom loved puzzles and when I saw this one, I laughed out loud and headed for my camera. It’s really true–doors are everywhere!

These are the last of the tiny doors…until they come out with some new ones. You get two for the price of one in the first photo, two tiny houses with cute roofs.

Handel’s is a very tempting ice cream store not far from where our daughter and family live. The store is bigger than this of course but the flavor of the ice cream has full-sized flavor! Until I went to the website, I didn’t realize Handel’s started in 1945 in Youngstown, Ohio and has locations in a number of states. Check it out. There might be one near you.

This edition of tiny house/businesses ends at the yacht club. Apparently the water has retreated but the club still looks appealing. I hope you’ve enjoyed the latest iteration of the businesses of Redondo Beach.

Once upon a time I read about some of the most misunderstood song lyrics with “Blinded by the Light” at the top of the list I read. But my favorite is the line I used for the title which has been misunderstood to be ““Hold me closer Tony Danza.” Make me laugh every time I think about or hear it. Anyhoo…even though tiny, this fairy dancer really rather dwarfs Trader Joe’s and I haven’t seen her outside the TJ’s near our daughter’s apartment. But who knows? Perhaps she flits from store to store.

Evidently a spider decided the Sweetpea Pearl Shop needed some outside decoration which I didn’t notice until I got ready to post the photo. I was shell-shocked. 🙂 But it does have a nice little door with the doorknob in a unique location so I used the photo anyway.

Just in case anyone has any funny ideas about stealing any tiny houses or other objects, the owners of the yard are ready for them! Rather nice landscaping for a jail, don’t you think?

That’s it for today but tune in next Thursday for the last of the tiny doors! 😦

I’m going to fulfill two challenges with three photos today, Thursday Doors and Life in Colour: white/silver. This bank on Coronado Island, California even has some gold thrown in to go with the white surrounding it.

In the same waiting area where I spotted the elegant white vase, I found these very sleek, modern, silvery doors

Now for your bonus tiny door and tiny silver trailer. Yes, this is from Redondo Beach again but not from the same yard that had all the tiny doors. All you need is a tiny truck and you’re off for tiny places unknown. Enjoy!

This is the last set of the tiny doors I found lining the edge of a yard in Redondo Beach, California. Someone took a lot of time to add details and make them interesting. This one even includes the home owner.

A little more rustic, but the surfboard with the dolphins is worth it.

You can barely see the door here but hey, a unicorn and the flowers should make up for that!

This final one looks like it should be on a South Sea island somewhere. It also looks as though it got short-changed in the details department, but it will get equal time nonetheless. I hope you’ve enjoyed the three weeks of tiny houses. Come back to see what’s on tap next week.

As promised, here’s another set of the tiny doors displayed in the yard of a house in Redondo Beach, California. There was a regular little village all along the yard next to the sidewalk.

Bonus! Two doors in one shot.

Although not my garden thing (and how silly would they look among cactus spread many feet apart), these tiny buildings nestled into the very front of a yard in Redondo Beach caught my attention because a) they were unusual and b) they had doors. Feel free to stop by door number 2 for a cooling gelato. If your weather’s anything like ours, you’ll need one!
