Whimsical Windows, Delirious Doors! #170

Welcome back to our sweet little meme!

This is a big post for me, so get ready :)

After Mary stopped her Window Views... and Doors, Too! meme back in 2011 (wow! I can't believe it was 2011!!) I decided to try and fill her shoes, and slowly started up my own version, called Whimsical Windows, Delirious Doors! I figured it was a good way to make sure that I blogged at least once weekly, plus, as a retired architecture student, I really enjoyed that particular challenge. Anyway, it's been a long time, and although I still really enjoy taking architectural shots, I sadly don't have the time to devote to this project any longer :(

But there's good news! Actually, great news :) Our good friend Ralph, who has been a loyal WWDD participant since the very start, has agreed to carry on the torch! And so, as of next week, you're all invited to pop over to Airhead-55, and sign up with your window and/or door of the week! Thank you Ralph! I do hope to participate as often as I can, and I hope that you all will too! I look forward to seeing how you make WWDD even better :)

Meanwhile, this is the last week that I'll be hosting our sweet little meme, and I did promise you all some closer views of those storybook windows that I posted last week. I drove around that wall that we saw, and found all of these, just waiting to be photographed. I have to say, I really like them - I'm completely enchanted by the idea of row houses that aren't identical - each with slightly different detailing and attention :) Enjoy! 

Wow, what a collection! I was really happy to stumble across these :)

Please play along with us here at Whimsical Windows, Delirious Doors! Just post your photo of a window, door, or anything architectural, link here, and sign up in the widget, below! Thanks so much for coming by, and thanks so much to all of you who have been coming here for so long, and sharing your local views with us! Have a wonderful, whimsical week, everyone - see you next week over at Ralph's :)

Thanks for all your years of hosting this meme and prodding us to go look for interesting doors and windows, Toby!

I have some (locked) wine fridge doors for you today. In time for Purim. :)

This is really wow! For me an unusual architekture... but very inspiriring (wish, I were a painter!).
Thanks for hosting, hope to see you later in the new meme.

Miss you here Toby, but hope you will keep posting on FB and here.
Balcony gardens are always so cute!
