These doors are such a cool idea! They made a great whimsical photo, too!

I love the door photo. Reminds me at all the searching we did in selvage yards to find a french door. (never did.)

Riet said...

Oh I love the doors picture.

What fun! Glad to see our lovely red Aussie Poinsettia is in use to cheer things up! Happy Christmas!

Quilly: there were 100 doors donated to be decorated (I didn't count)

Podso: there were certainly a wide - and narrow - variety of doors here

Riet: thanks, today is the last day for the display

GooseBreeder: check out my last post for poinsettias!

I lived in a house that had a whole wall of floor to ceiling French doors. Seeing these makes me miss that house.

Nora: all those french doors sounds so wonderfully bright and airy

What a GOOD idea. I love that door at the bottom, especially.

I love this post! What a unique and creative idea.

VioletSky said...

Gattina: it was like an exposition

Char: when RBG first asked for doors, we wondered what on earth for - now we know

Annie: having an old door in the middle of a garden is pretty neat, too

Jeri: thanks, I went back several times to have a look at them all

Mary said...

What an unusual idea! Love it!

Mary: there are quite a few sculpture and art displays in the RBG, which is fun to see.
