And behind the curtain. . . Not a door post

I will give Norm Frampton a

“Shout out” despite my not

displaying the rather “boring”

front doors to this wine and

appetizers destination. This richly

decorated back room displayed

thick burgundy tapestry curtains,

on the inside of the building.

A couple of photographs will

hopefully ignite your curiosity,

allowing me to skip the

Thursday’s Doors with

instead “What’s behind your

closed doors worth mentioning?”

Here is a great fellow blogger

where you can check out his Doors,

as well as other bloggers who feature

their doors, stopping by Norm’s and

creating a direct link to other doors!

Happy Door’s hunting and thanks for

reading my post today with curtains

and no actual door featured.

    • I peeked in there and thought of Arabian knights and fairy tales, Beth. It would be a fun place for a more quiet bachelorette party, while closing the curtains for privacy. πŸ™‚

    • Oh, thanks, Pauline! You can see why I couldn’t resist putting it on a Thursday, since it could be like a magical doorway. I love the word, “enticing.” Matches the setting perfectly, dear friend. ❀

  1. There’s a Renaissance feel to this curtained doorway. I can imagine plots being hatched, or a rendezvous taking place, or a sonnet being written. πŸ™‚
    Wine and appetizers sound–well, appetizing! Hope you got to enjoy it.

    • Merril, I love your imagination which took you right into the mood I sensed when I entered here.
      The trio of potential plots behind the curtain were magnificent. You are truly a creative writer and your sharing this was most generous and enriched my post. Thank you. πŸ™‚
      We sat in the main room, with plenty of spaces between tables. I tasted three “flights” of rose wines. The mildest light pink wine (a blush) was my favorite while Felicia and Jerry savored the darker rose.
      We all enjoyed the pita, olives and cheeses. I was there for about a hour “feasting.” Quite enough for a meal!

      • You are very generous yourself Robin. It’s so kind of you to get so enthusiastic about my ramblings. πŸ™‚
        The wine tasting sounds fun. And even better that it came with pita, olives, and cheese!
        That’s interesting that there were so many rosΓ©s. My husband and I usually go for the reds.

    • This was such a clever and fun comment, Derrick. Thanks!
      Yes, curtains to doors. The plot thickens, will the door come back to replace the drapery?
      I see our intrepid Thursday’s Doors host has not stopped by. He is on vacation until September 12th, although I did spy a comment on another’s blog. πŸ˜‰

      • Sarah, thanks for your comment. Somehow, by replying under Dan’s I am unsure of how to fix this. You are probably receiving the two comments I meant for him.
        I am so glad you, as an attorney, see no binding contract in the doors policy. πŸ˜‰
        I am laughing out loud at tis silly mixed up comments section. Oh well!
        Happy weekend to both Sarah and Dan, separately.

      • Then, it may have become straightened up, Sarah. Stranger things this have happened with this cell phone! My grown kids think it is possessed!

    • I feel we stretch doors from time to time to include imagination, Dan. I liked Joey’s one time which was a really cool post. I liked having my grandies inspect the miniature collection in the glass cabinet. Hmm. . . I always find everyone’s choices interesting actually. πŸ™‚

    • I think sometimes we stretch doors to include different forms. I remember Joey’s cabinet door,along with my glass cabinet box with miniature collection.
      It usually is up to interpretation anyway. I could not resist sharing this curtained doorway with the cool leather-like medallion. It was so unique and thanks for finding it lovely, Dan. πŸ™‚

    • Yes, I long to be able to reach this level someday. (Intimacy which the curtains evoked.) ❀ Thank you, Fiona. These curtains had my blood running warm, possibly the RosΓ© wine "flights" helped the situation too. πŸ™‚

  2. I love your interpretation of the door theme … β€œWhat’s behind your closed doors worth mentioning?” πŸ™‚ So often that’s exactly what I’m thinking – what’s behind those doors?!

    I agree with Dan though … it looks like a doorway to me and the curtains do form a ‘door’ as needed πŸ™‚

    • Dan is a kind hearted friend to us all. πŸ™‚
      Well, you helped make me fully comfortable with my decision. First, I really like the idea of closing the curtains to have a family or group “party,” Joanne. As you acknowledge, by doing so, the curtains become like a door. . .
      I remember your saying on one of my older home’s door posts, that you wanted to encourage me when I said I wanted to “peek inside” but you didn’t want me to become arrested! Ha ha!
      We all want to know what is behind the closed curtains and doors!

    • It was a friendly place and the appetizer plates were about average in price. Thanks, Marissa for saying it looks “exclusive.” I felt it looked “elegant” and from another time, like a room in a castle due to the stonework.
      Olive plate was $6, pita with hummus plate with veggies $8 and we added cheeses, I think another $7. I loved the variety of warm olives! I would have ordered and had only one bottle of wine for the three of us, but I tend to try to save money. We splurged! πŸ˜‰

      • Not bad as far as prices. Nowadays, I rarely see anything on a menu for less than $10…even fast food. And with the atmosphere…makes it more worth it!

      • I didn’t pay the bill, buy I was impressed the food was reasonable, in my mind. Like you, I was comparing it to recent meals which were not in as nice a setting. Thanks, Marissa! xo

    • Just the place to order a glass of wine, Kirt. πŸ™‚ Tomorrow I am posting the wine “flights” we had. This was something not that uncommon but I had never tried before! Cheers to you and yours!

    • The word “enchanting” certainly matched the way I felt when I entered this rather ordinary (from the outside) place, Annika. It is right next door to a Dunkin’Donuts! You would assume a rather modest place but the curtains and setting was sumptuous, to my eyes. πŸ™‚
