Tuscany and its doors!





This one leads into a cathedral...



...a quiet sanctum of darkness and opulence where the faithful leave candles of prayer burning to the Holy One.




Perhaps an Italian Mama lives here and prepares pasta al pesto for those she loves. (Side Note: if you are ever in Tuscany... order that!).





If you could pick, which door would be the one to your house?

Number one would be my backdoor and number five would be my front door. Love all of them.

Welcome Back...it's going to be a real pleasure traveling through Tuscany with you..

I could find a place for each of these entrances. They all have such a warmth and romance about them.

These doors are beautiful. Each one is unique. I loved the arched door surrounded by the exposed brick. It just looks old and rustic. It looks like it has stood there stately for many a years. Wonder what is behind it?

Randy said...

You know me. I love the color of the first door.

Allison, doors are such unique and important parts of buildings and many people overlook the details. Thanks for sharing these - and for noticing them too.

I really like the first green door
but I suppose any of them would do me!

I'm not fussy,
any door to any house in Italy
would be appreciated!!
