Doors on a Wall, Moon Street, Bristol, January 2017

Thursday doors – 19 December 2019

Doors 92 – My top ten doors of the year

Norm has been encouraging people like us (Doorbies? Door fanciers? Doorists? Dooristas? – what are we called?) to use this last Door week of the year to look back and post some of our favourites from 2019 – this is a bit of a win-win for lazy/busy people like me because the hardest bit of this post is deciding what to include/exclude.

Here goes – the numbers don’t necessarily relate to my ranking

    1. Doors used to prevent graffiti or an artistic expression? (posted this year)

2. Door within a door – always works for me

10. Door in need of a little TLC

Of course there are so many other doors I would have liked to have included and this was not an easy job. Hope you liked this selection though and I look forward to a doortastic 2020.

I’ll follow Norm’s example and take a couple of weeks off, so have a fabulous Christmas all and see you next year.

You might like to take a look at the Norm 2.0 blog – the originator of Thursday Doors where there are links to yet more doors in the comments section at the end.

  1. These are all excellent selections. Too difficult to pick a favourite so I won’t even try. Instead I’ll just appreciate them all for what they are: wonderful!
    Happy Holidays and see you in 2020 πŸ™‚

  2. Always love your wit in introducing these fabulous doors! Yes, the hand carved oak door with the family crests is impressive, and I can see why it would be a favorite. The door within a door is a neat find, too; called a wicket, I believe.
