  1. Ohh, what a marvellous collection! So artistic and full of traces from the past. I see that you link to Dan but to his last week’s post. Please, be so kind and edit the link so that it leads to his yesterday’s post. I’d hate it if any door loves missed this post.

    • Thanks for the note – I just managed to change the link when the electricians arrived and I had to turn my computer off. Some countries just have the most exquisite doors – here in Vancouver they tend to be mostly new and boring!
