Lucketts 2014 Spring Design House

One of my favorite things to do while at Lucketts is to visit the Design House . .

This year it was a bit more difficult to snap pics and it was pretty crowded . . .

~ ~ being that it was the first day of the Lucketts Spring Market.

So hope you enjoy this mini tour of the Design House:

The Magnificent Doors of Normandy

I have a “thing”…and obsession for doors and gates….can you tell?!!

…..I so love Charleston, South Carolina…to swoon over the incredible ironwork of their doors and gates.

When I traveled to France with the “Fab Five”…

I was so excited while driving through the street of Paris…gazing at the glorious ironwork…

…..I think our host/guide/antiquities extraordinaire, Alain, thought I was crazy snapping away…

……….through the window of the “tour mobile”

………………….taking pictures of the incredible ironwork on the buildings.

Today…I am presenting the magnificent doors that I saw in Normandy…

Some were stained….

Some were extremely grand and ornate…and some were simple, yet elegant…

And others beautifully painted….

If I had a some tools and no fear of being arrested….I would have taken this beauty home!

We here in the States have a love affair with old doors…..

…..your heart would have been skipping many beats over these doors of sheer beauty.

O.K…I need a defibrillator on this one!!

You would think this is a hotel…no, it is the Town Hall.

Doors of wonderful brick buildings….

And doors to welcome me home!!!

When I see an old magnificent door…one that is hundreds and maybe centuries years old…

…..I cannot help but think of all the people who have walked through those doors.
