The Worthington Inn, Thursday’s Doors #3



I like the antique features,

Thinking of all those who

have passed through these

beautiful wooden doors.

What details do you

notice first or like most?

collection and doors,

I am experiencing crazy and hapless adventures in dating that may interest people over fifty. I am now approaching 62 later this year and enjoy taking photographs, incorporating stories or poetry on my blog. I have many old posts which are informative and written like essays. I have several love stories collected from family and friends. Even strangers spill their stories, since I am a grown version of the girl next door. I have been trying to live a healthy lifestyle with better food selections and active hiking and walking. I have written four children's books and illustrated them. They are not published but a battered women's shelter used one about neglect and abuse for their children's program and a 4H group used my "Kissing a Bunny is like saying a Prayer" as a coloring book. Please comment or respond so I may get a chance to know you. Sincerely, Robin

  1. I’m do glad the WordPress snafu didn’t leave you without a door Robin. I was drawn to the top of these doors. There’s a bit of an illusion going on. When I look closely, I notice the slightly curved panels but from a distance, I don’t. I thing the round and curved decorative featured at the top cause me not to see the underlying curved structure.

    In any case, great doors. I’m so glad you joined Thursday Doors. Have a Merry Christmas!!!

    • Thank you (belatedly) for your noticing the curved doors. I think the carved details are distracting as is the shiny varnish. It causes your eyes to not “see” the curved doors.

      I am grateful you enjoyed all of these posts. I have an “inside the Worthington Inn” post for New Year’s Day. I also have a tapestry I need to research from this beautiful place. I could not help sharing all the unique features, Dan. πŸ™‚

    • I agree, Maniparna, the doors appeared “royal” with their ornate details and pretty glass windows. I am glad you enjoyed this and an embarrassed, I just noticed I had not responded to the nice dozen comments. Hope you will look the other way and forgive this oversight. Take care and enjoy your day! πŸ™‚

  2. JM was a stone cutter for a while, and made several doorways. He told me that the dimensions, and shape of the doorway is extemely important. The best ones allow your whole self (aura included) to walk through in comfort. This seems to be one of those doors. Have a Happy Christmas day tomorrow! x

    • Veronica, please excuse my tardy response to your lovely and interesting response to this door. I am grateful you have JM to talk about doors and his ability to cut stone. I appreciate his abilities and knowing how to make the doors fit, including allowing the “aura” of the owner to fit is really amazing! πŸ™‚ Tell him thank you for contributing to my comments, V.β™‘

  3. A lovely choice for the occasion. The moldings, the glass and those wreaths are wonderful.
    A very Merry Christmas to you. So glad to have you in our Thursday Doors crew πŸ™‚

    • Norm, thank you for listing the parts of the door you enjoyed. πŸ™‚ I like your being focused on the details. I found one dozen kind comments in answered today. I am embarrassed at my not checking all posts afee Christmas.
      I guess considering how many posts I did on this Worthington Inn, it was not “too bad” to write back in 5 days. Trying to make light but I did like your comment, Norm.
      Hope you have a great new year.:)

    • You are fine since you wrote a comment on each of this series, Marissa. Look at my “tardy” comment back. You could if you were bored see that I got a dozen comments on this post which I left unanswered until five days later! Horrors, am I embarrassed? Yes! 😦

      • When I started blogging, I didn’t even realize that you could answer comments more than once. In other words, if someone commented on my blog, all good…but if I commented on someone else’s, I didn’t know how to see the response unless I went back to their blog which obviously was way too much work. Somehow I still managed to gain followers. I guess what I’m trying to say is, don’t feel too bad about it!

      • Thank you for saying this warm comment, Marissa. I like to consider comments, even when spaced out over time, like a long distance friendship where notes would be mailed and people would wait for responses. Those who are “off” or are at their computers or desks, have only a few minutes needed to respond. While others who work or do home activities must wait for the way the responses get delayed. I enjoy hearing from you! πŸ™‚

    • Thank you, Nia. Guess what? I have no excuse but I missed these very nice comments! This was accidental, of course but I appreciate your writing comment about the wreaths being symmetrical with their being green and festive. Hugs, Robin

    • Thank you, Brenda. I like that the doors are curved so when you open them they aren’t straight across. I think older doors are so interesting in their notches, carvings and details. Hope you are resting and enjoying having the children at home with you over the holidays. β™‘β™‘β™‘ Hugs, Robin

      • Oops, Brenda. Hope your dentist appt went all right. I have one on Jan. 6th so happy I won’t have to work past 3:30 pm. I joke with Dr. Hughes and say, “It is a pretty sad state of affairs when someone looks forward to seeing their dentist over work!”
        Thank you for letting me know about your arched top over the front door! β™‘

    • I am glad you liked the texture of this door, Joey. I actually was hoping you would see this particular shot since it has those little notches and the arched doors, all sorts of “Joey details” which you find in your older doors that you like! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

      • You know how I love the old stuff πŸ™‚ That makes me smile, Robin, thanks!
        (I wish you had email subscription, but I try just to Google your blog now and again and catch up — I don’t always have time to peruse the Reader.)
