Peacock Door/Thursday Doors

From the computer ‘vault’ this Thursday Doors, I’m presenting a donation door that I hope to see in person some day. Until then, I hope you’ll enjoy this little taste of Chicago from my daughter’s latest conference trip. She sure hit a home run with this one!

A great portrayal is hard to beat when conveying the story behind a great set of doors.

The Palmer House Lobby is pretty lavish. I wish the lights had a little less glare to see the fixtures. But even so, they definitely spared no expense here.

Now that’s a ‘spensive door! Fenced off for good reason. I’m pretty sure most folks would have all stopped to photograph it to avoid staring.

To sum it up, I think lots of Thursday Doors are a result of not wanting to be caught staring at the wonderful doors we find. I hope you’ll stop over at Norm 2.0 and check out his doors as they’re always wonderful. He’ll tell you where to find the rest of his followers as well.

Childhood hometown, Green Ridge, Missouri.

It’s a long way from Green Ridge, Missouri, (population 476) to Chicago, Illinois. The last time I was there was before cell phones. There were only car phones actually attached to your car. Nonetheless, this is a Thursday Doors post and I’m using photos donated by my one and only sister. Last weekend, she flew to Chicago on a business trip and happened to think of me. Here is how I’m going to tell her story.

Tootsie is a big deal currently in the windy city. And on this evening, I’d venture a ride on the water would be pretty enjoyable. I’d hope for a guided tour myself along with a nice bottle of wine to warm me up in case it’s cool.

A “Show-Me-The-Money-Green” Mercedes would do just fine for a tour of the rest of the weekend.

And dropping me off at the London House Hotel would be the icing on the cake. Look this one up on Google. Wowza!

A shout out to my little sister for sharing her views of Chi-town! Evette, you’re next! (my family is pretty awesome like that)

And a thank you to our stand-in hosts the past 3 weeks for our Thursday Doors blogging. Much appreciated!!
