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! 😦

Thursday Doors 5.5.22

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.

for Thursday Doors 6.17.21

In much of Wyoming, the doors of choice are outdoors (or maybe sometimes outhouse doors), but if you look, you can sometimes find doors of the more normal sort. Both sets of doors today are definitely not geared towards people tending toward the wide side. But anyone can view them from the outside, the best place to by in Wyoming.

This is the door end of a sheepherder’s wagon. It’s not in use now in that capacity, but it works well for a unique door. Talk about tiny houses before tiny houses were the in thing! And this one is moveable. Click here for a short but very cool, one might even say cold, look at how an entire family lived in one of these! And seriously, you all need to take a look at these incredible Woolywagons. These days you can rent one also instead of a motel room if you so choose. Dan, Norm, or any other handy DIYers want to build your own? Here are “20 Awesome Shepherders Plans” ready and waiting. You could get more than one blog post out of that project!

Drat! I forgot Norm was taking this week and the next two off. Well, I hope you enjoyed the limited edition Thursday Doors. I wonder if anyone else forgot.
