Thursday Doors


A little bit of fun but still lots of colour from Kinsale for this week’s Thursday Doors post.


An old time amusement park adds to the vintage flavour of the town and some of the rides remind me of when I was a child in the seaside village of Blackrock, County Louth. During the summer, when the rides were set up on the beach, my three younger sisters and I would share one of the swinging boats. Sure, we’re descended from a long line of fishermen, why wouldn’t we? 🙂


I think it was way before Bart’s time, though.




No historical info this week, just a bit of nostalgia. Thanks for joining me at the funfair and if you would like to have a look at a variety of doors from around the globe, swing by Norm’s blog and check out this week’s offerings for Thursday Doors. 🙂

    I love everything about that first photo from the shoes with little plants at the bottom of the stairs to the folding doors on each side of the entrance and the umbrella-like cover over top 🙂

    I love the colors and who doesn’t love some carnival time? I am always amazed when I see doors to trailers nicely detailed. It makes me smile, because I realize that someone wants to come home to that door.

    Lots of fun indeed. These bring back fond memories for me as well. But is so much mint green ever really necessary? 😀

  5. Love the color of that first door, Jean. Nostalgia is (usually) fun and I enjoyed this trip into the past.

    What a find, Jean! Love the teacups (which was one of my favorite rides at Disneyland, when we lived in Southern Cal.)! And the door is lovely!
    Sorry, life got in the way and haven’t even gotten back to your last comment (if I remember correctly). Not anything bad though.

  10. +1 [] I was going to say the same thing! I want one of those caravans! I love it.

    The Book Shop in the background in another image looks inviting too.

    I love the sea foam green and how nice to have this seaside and fishing hertitage – and I could not quite make out the sign with Bart – is it “two tokens per Bobby”

I'd love to hear from you.
