#ThursdayDoors – My Neighbourhood


I’ve always been a little fascinated with this little house around the corner from where I live. As I walked past it a few weeks back, I decided to take a picture.


It’s not just the narrow doors that intrigue me, it’s the iron bars on the upper windows and the lace curtains in the lower ones that really bring the whole thing together, which sparks my imagination.

Here’s a closeup of the lovely doors.


I live in a decidedly old part of town. Many Loyalists settled here in the 1850s, and quite a few of the houses from that era still stand. Here’s one that’s a bit different.


I’ll have to go back after the leaves fall to get a picture of it all the way to the top.

Here’s the door, in all its yellow splendour.


I’ve missed participating in this prompt. It’s good to be back. Thank you to Norm Frampton, our host. You can find him here Why don’t you join in too? πŸ™‚

  1. Love the yellow the most – xxoo


  2. That second building is superb.


  3. What a lovely house!!


  4. The yellow and green one makes for a magnificent porch, you can just imagine closing the yellow door on the weather, snug inside, slipping your coat off and hey, I’m home…


  5. Love that older architecture. So much character and story in the foundation!


  6. Glad you joined us again this week! Great doors! Both of those are ones I’d capture too πŸ™‚


  7. Welcome back Linda – I hope all is well πŸ™‚
    I fell in love with the green and yellow one right away. As for that first one, there has to be another entrance right? Cause dat door ain’t got no handle.
    BTW I’m warning you waaay in advance for a possible meet-up/doorscursion in your hood next spring if you’re up for it. One of my relatives is moving from Ottawa out to your area and if all goes well we expect to be paying him a visit there in the spring – will keep you posted in due time. Cheers!


    • Thanks so much, Norm. I think about it every Thursday, but this is the first week I’ve had a few minutes to myself to post. πŸ™‚
      I’d noticed the door doesn’t have a handle – I’ll have to go back and see where they get in.
      Meeting up would be awesome!!! Whenever you’re ready, you can find my email on my “About” page and we’ll make arrangements. πŸ˜€ I’m looking forward to it already!
