Thursday Doors gifts, 24/6/21

Today I wish to share with you the wonderful gifts that keep coming from my family in Slovenia involving doors, arches, a couple of windows and some laundry, and five door photos that my sister took here in Italy even before I started posting doors on Thursdays.

Not one photo today was taken by me.

Father sent me the arches from Izola on the Slovenian coast already last summer, and hopefully you will agree that they are a kind of doors too.

Then the “witches” – mother and her friends, one of which is responsible for the spectacular Madeira doors from three weeks ago – and their husbands went on a little giro around Slovenia in September and father sent some more doors from there and an especially beautiful window. For Flavia, he said. Plus, you can buy a monastery for 100.000 Eur.

I posted some sister’s doors already, especially one from Maribor here, but today comes a surprising photo from Bohinj, featured above, of the house where we spent many happy times with family and friends through the years. She returned to the scene last year after a long while. Ukanc 33 is the address and I’ll never forget it.

And when I found five door photos that she took in Sovana, Orbetello and Orvieto during her second visit in 2014, a year before I started posted them for Thursday Doors, I took it as an unmistakable sign, and you will agree, that we are sisters.

All these had to wait a little but for beauty it’s never too late. I am grateful to all involved.

The last photo in the gallery is a repeat of my uncle’s brilliant most important door in the house of my parents where he was visiting. It’s the return of the fridge door. Wicked sense of humour for real!

But let’s start in Izola and its pretty colour scheme with the first eight photos.

    1. Hihih, I wrote that on purpose again, Jean. I suppose my mom has learned her lesson. Thank you! That house was not ours, we just rented it for a week every summer, our family and several others. It had a ping pong table too. Such a fun week.

  1. I have so many favorites – the narrow double doors in Orbetello, the Orvieto Cathedral, the refrigerator 😉 You father does have a good eye. The old pharmacy is my favorite favorite.

    I had to type this in NotePad. As soon as I touch the letters ‘a’ or ‘d’, I’m brought back into the gallery. Apparently, only in Firefox – I think I can comment easily in Chrome.

    1. Thank you, Dan, I’m glad you like that window. And thanks for detailing your comment trouble. From now on, you are officially allowed to use a star instead of ‘a’ and hm… let’s see… a number 8 instead of ‘d’, and I’ll fix it later. 😉 I haven’t used Firefox in a long time, that’s why I never have these problems on other blogs (or mine), I suppose.

  2. Love the archways theme running through the post. What a great family you have sending you these photographs. Of course I was drawn to the street art wall in Ljubljana.

    1. Thank you, scooj. I love arches too and all of them for sending me doors. You probably saw that Ljubljana post when I posted it. You wouldn’t miss something like that. 🙂 I’m curious if the wall has been knocked down. The city managed to take over this Rog factory by now. 😦

    1. Oh, Roberta, it’s just my idea of what a witch door could be like. 😀 I have no idea what it is of. My father would know. I have never been there. But my mom and her friends really call themselves witches, for a laugh. Thank you, I love it too how they love doors.

Happy to learn the first thing on your mind.
