Some windows and doors can be ugly, like the ones we need to replace. Those were beautiful and I enjoyed the tour!

Cynnie, your photos also let others ‘see’ in to another world. I enjoyed looking at the different styles. Thank you. Your words were so apt.

We recently replaced three 25-year-old doors. The new ones came in fine, but the old ones went out with so many memories. I miss them.

These are some pretty impressive doors and windows. I always love it when I see where others live. This post was so much fun because we have nothing in my little town that compares to some of these photos. Thanks for sharing.

Hello Cynnie,

I just discovered your blog via Trash to Treasure, Lynn Stevens. I'm so glad I came here. I love the windows and prose. I've decided to become a follower.

Thanks so much for posting!

A beautiful selection of images to illustrate a lovely post.

Good morning Cynnie - loved seeing the windows with the little crochet curtains - they remind me so much of Holland. I lived there for 17 years, married a Dutch man. Lovely post, TFS!

What a beautiful post and photos! Germany is a place I have to visit eventually. Seeing this post makes me want to go out and try something similar, though it's pouring rain outside. Perhaps on a sunny day.

Beautiful inspiration in this post!

Marit said...

This post took me right back to art school, where one of my teachers - and an artist - was famous (at least among his students and in the region) for always photographing doors. He spend half his life looking at doors. We called him "Kees Deur" (his name: Kees, and his last name "Door"...) your post brought back some nice memories! Thanks!

Mary said...

I tend to see doors as an opening-- with possibly a mystery within-- love doors-- especially old weathered ones-- this a beautiful post.

Roberta said...

European architecture is so much more interesting than Canadian. I love the little princess doll in the one window.

Lisa Walsh said...

Cynnie, what a beautiful and incredible collection of architecture, and wonderful words to go with them. Thanks for giving us a tour of your part of the world.
