My iTunes: Stay With You by the Goo Goo Dolls

Thanks to Anna in her comment today on my post, I remembered that I had yet to show my front door in London. If you go back through my archives, I have this "thing" for doorways...the door, the landscaping, the knocker. In London there are so many different ones to see, take in and admire. I took a ton of door images (some of which I TOTALLY trespassed to take). I never did show my door. I guess it was for privacy issues but my husband pointed out that reason was ridiculous considering I was writing about my whole life (and his) on my blog! :) If you put all my posts side by side...you would have ended up at this door saying hello to me.

Good point honey. That is why I love you.

Anyway, here it is now that I am gone. Nothing fancy really but I love the blue. So pretty. I couldn't leave London without posting it. We moved twice in London although after we moved through this door, I felt like a lot of our life there started taking shape. Thanks to good neighbors, friends and a cafe down the street called The Doll's House it was looking more like home day by day.

Thanks Anna for the reminder! Have a great week everyone!

Hiya Anna :D Swing by from Chad's and what a beautiful shade of blue with that white it is a lovely contrast :D

I'll check out your door when I visit London again :)

Mike said...

The best door is your very own! Nice welcoming blue door Anna. Wonder what the neighbors will think of a door that color here in the States?

I love that electric blue, but it would never fly in my neighborhood! What color will your new door be?

Ms. Math said...

I wish we had beautiful doors like that here! What better way to welcome someone into your home. Lovely photo.

What a beautiful door, anna.

I am sad that you left and we never got to meet. I enjoy your blog and your photos so much i was going to suggest we maybe met for coffee next time I'm in London.

However I'm so thrilled that you are back home where you belong. I loved my 3 weeks in CA recently; my friends there are like family and their home is truly a home from home BUT...I am relishing being back in my own place.In England. God bless you and your lovely family!

I'm assuming you didn't live on Downing Street.

Anna said...

You assume correct John although I walked by it many times! :)

Mark said...

Wouldn't it be great to see colors like that in the suburbs here in the US? Never happen.

Love the white rectangles against the blue!

Anna said...

I miss walking up to that door and confusing who ever it was that happened to answer the phone upstairs by saying "Hey! It's Anna."

utenzi said...

That's a very beautiful shade of blue, Anna. A very nice door...and now you've left it behind.

eurorebs said...

LOVE the blue! And of course, your composition :)

JAM said...

Beautiful. Very appropriate to the subject matter of the past couple of days.

Lara said...

ooh, love the color. i also really like that you only needed to show part of it to get such impact. :)

Chad Oneil said...

Blue is my favorite color. I like that song too ;)

Moi said...

Notting Hill Blues!!! ;)

I love colorful walls and windows and doors....and this is splendid, Anna!!! :)

photowannabe said...

Love the blue and love this shot. It is so full of meaning. Doors can be the opening to new things or a final ending.
Hope you get settled soon and start on new adventures.
