Whimsical Windows, Delirious Doors! #44

Here we are, back again for our favorite weekly meme!
Once again, it's time for another Jewish holiday! I'll be off celebrating Sukkot tonight, so I'm posting this a little early. We're nearing the end of this holiday season, it's crazy but festive, and I'll be sorry to see it go. Anyway, here's the front door of our Sukka, the little hut that we built on our porch for the holiday. The sign says "welcome" in Hebrew:
We live on a very windy mountaintop, and so our sukka is made of wood, so as not to blow away! But this year we made an improvement, and added a big window on the northern wall, letting in lots of light. Here are some inside views:

It's decorated with all sorts of things that my kids have created over the past ten-or-so years. It's always a trip down memory lane to drag out the box of decorations and hang them up!
Anyway, there you have it - two whimsical windows and one delirious door!
Now it's your turn! Please post a photo of a window, door, or anything architectural, link here, and sign up in the widget below! We can't wait to see what you've found for us this week. Happy Sukkot, everyone!

Looks like a nice place to party...if that's what you do in there! Happy holiday!

The feeling of family love is what I see in the children's decorations from years past. Your Sukka hut looks sturdy enough, and the faith and celebration from those inside allow it to have unlimited strength. Have a great holiday!

I like holidays that are festive where you can pull out the children's old decorations.

I also love the decorations! What happy memories each must represent. I don't think we would survive having a Sukkah as we live in the windiest capital on the planet. Which is probably why most of the Jews live in Auckland - they started in the capital then had to retrieve their Sukkah 8 hours drive away, where it had blown:-) Chag Sameach.
