Countesthorpe Doors

Treasures in small-ish places.

This summer we made our way across the pond to the village of Countesthorpe (pop 6,300 +\-), Leicestershire in England to visit my in-laws. Thats smack in the middle of the Midlands.

My husbands folks have always come to us. For years and years. But now, age and health concerns have gotten in the way. So, it’s our turn to return the favour.

And lucky us!! We get to explore!

Open door policy at the Bulls Head.

As you can see, it was bright and sunny – every single day. And HOT! Unexpectedly hot.

Nice job, Countesthorpe! You sure offer up a nice variety is welcoming doorways!!

Old Stony Brook Doors

Just a couple of pretty doors I wandered past while visiting Old Stony Brook, Long Island this week.


I just love a red door!  This pretty church looks as though it has recently received a new coat of shingles. 

The door to the Three Village Inn & Tavern. This door was so inviting we went inside for a bit of supper and a pint. Very charming!

A Garden Door

Summertime! Historic Home & Garden (and boat!) Tour.  Mahone Bay, Nova Scotia. A delightful find.  A secret little summerhouse tucked into the corner of one property……

  

The door is open…… Let’s step inside….

  
Looks like an invitation to sit, perhaps read a little (maybe a seed catalogue), dream a little …..croquet, anyone?

  
Oh!  Or have a nap in the hammock!
