Portland Preview

RenovationI spent the weekend in Portland, Maine, and I think I may be in love.  What a beautiful city!  I was there for my sister-in-law’s baby shower and I think I made my brother and SIL a little nervous driving and door-hunting at the same time.  It was kind of a rainy weekend so I’ll do a more extensive post when I become an aunt in a couple of months, but here’s a preview of some of the gorgeous doors around town.  It’s sad that the doors being installed today are so plain and generic.  The door bloggers of the future won’t have any cool photos to post!

I thought the one at right was interesting because the existing street door was changed so you enter through an opening to the left and go up some stairs behind it to the door visible through the glass, but they kept the original exterior door.  –>

This is the Victoria Mansion on Danforth Street:

    Love the architecture in Maine. In my brief stint of living there for a year and a half it has some of the most beautiful buildings and homes I’ve ever seen.
