Joy’s Undisclosed Location #ThursdayDoors

I went to visit my friend Joy, about which more anon, and found a plethora of doors! A plethora!

She wasn’t there when I first got there, but somebody was.

In case you can’t see him, try this one:

That’s George.

Here’s the porch and a side door.

And around front, with some super paving.

Inside — MORE DOORS!

This one, with glass panels WHICH SHE MADE.

This one, which is the coolest stairwell door I ever saw. You can’t see it, but Joy, an artist, has painted a mural up the wall inside there.

And this awesomesauce piece of furniture. What is that, an armoire, or a secretary, or what?

Back outside, here are a couple of barn doors, the shadow of an arch, and a birdhouse door.

Here’s the arch, and another birdhouse.

This has been part of the ever-lovin’ Norm Frampton’s Thursday Doors link-up. Go to Norm’s page, take a gander at his doors, click on the blue frog link at the bottom of his post, and visit more doors. Add your own, if you got ’em!

A WRITING PROMPT FOR YOU: Write about a birdhouse.




I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.

    These are beautiful doors. I may need a set of stairway doors, if I ever finish our 2nd floor. I like the look of those. I also love that piece of furniture – whatever you call it 🙂

      I never saw or thought of stairway doors with glass in them, but I sure like them! Pictures, when it happens!

    What a beautiful house and furnishings, Marian. That stained glass is wonderful. The stairway doors remind me of my grandparents’ farm house. They, of course, didn’t have anything but a plain door, but in their house, the upstairs wasn’t heated, so the door kept the cold air upstairs. When we’d stay, it didn’t take us long to get dressed and downstairs in the mornings! 🙂

      I hear you, Janet! I can remember staying at my great-grandparents’, where the pot-bellied stove kept the downstairs warm, but we huddled under the covers upstairs. And getting up to use the chamber pot? Just no. Mind over bladder.

    I love that piece of furniture in your seventh photo from the top. It has really great detail in the carving. Did you ever decide what to call it?
