Thursday Doors, October 13

With parents safely on train, I conclude that we have seized the week’s only two really nice and warm days to discover five new towns, their autumn feasts, a museum, a couple of tombs, a Pinocchio, and of course the doors. Three door images from each of the five towns coming up.

1. Caldana (community of Gavorrano)

2. Motorsaio (community of Campagnatico)

3. Monticello Amiata (community of Cinigiano)

4. Bagnolo (community of Santa Fiora)

5. Vetulonia, Etruscan metropolis (community of Castiglione della Pescaia).

    I love your door variety (again) – and another takeaway is that number 8 shot – you know – looking up at the number and the extras 🙂

    1. Oh, Prior, I had a quick look and saw that I’ve got three No. 8 doors. 😀 Also, your comment went straight to spam for some reason, but I’ve rescued it. Thank you!

  7. I love the sphinx doors. And, that cat. I felt I could coo at the computer screen (embarrassing myself). You have such a knack for coming upon the ordinary and showing us how special it is.

    Another nice collection! I love the door with the cat, and the door at the bottom of the stairs. I think my fav is the Motorsaio door.

  12. I enjoyed the diversity of doors in this post and was particularly drawn to the door knocker in Motorsaio as well as the kitten at the end.

    Your door selections are always lovely … but this week, the buildings themselves are exceptionally interesting. The building with the first For Sale sign is wonderfully eclectic. It looks positively ANCIENT!!

    … and how could I not love the little kitty compartment? 🙂

    1. Thank you, Joanne! I’m often attracted by everything surrounding a door as well. It is but the mouth. And ancient is appropriate. One of the cultural birthplaces of humanity for sure.

        Interesting … I’ve never heard the door of a building being referred to the mouth before … but it works.
