  1. Yes! I’m right there with you. I would love to try it. Every once in a while, I go on sites looking at places to buy in and around Paris, Florence, London. I keep hoping we’ll get the chance.

  2. Hello there – I found this post by doing a tag search for doors. What a wonderful collection. The weathered one with the 36-34 on either side is my favorite.
    I host a weekly series on my blog called #ThursdayDoors where folks from all over come by to share posts about doors.
    Please feel free to swing by and ad your post to the linkup list so other door lovers can find it. And you’ll also meet a whole bunch of other door nuts there too – cheers!
