#ThursdayDoors — She’s Not The Girl Next Door

I spotted a lil somethin alluring.

In an alley, back, back, back.

This ivy-skirted vignette whispered my name.



You just know when you see somethin like that, there are gonna be doors of interest.



Brick, lookin all kindsa sexy.





Ooh, y’all, it’s gettin so good.




Uh. Okay. Not what I’d had in mind.




Oh yeah, that’s the stuff.



Number 19 is Not the Girl Next Door.

  4. I liked the screen door and barn looking door next to it, and #19. Yes, that ivy vignetted fence was enticing!

  6. I love it that you are now an advanced door-seeker. Like bird-watching, there’s a gestalt thing going on – you can’t put your name on it, but certain details in combination, like location, colour, habitat, give you the answer to the identity of the bird – or in your case, ivy, bricks, and alleys are enough for you to know that you are hot on the trail!

    Is it bad that I like the four brick-red windows with black bars the best? They are like homey institution windows. The arched brick is cool too.

    You get an “A” for that opening line. Whew. All steamed up over ivy! The doors of possibility swung open wide and there she was. Ivy. BEST DOOR post today!

    I do believe that was worth the extra steps – definitely not the typical alley-style door. Very pretty indeed 🙂

  13. Oooh, you had me all excited on that little adventure, Joey. I’m a sucker for Ivy myself. Can’t blame you for being tempted. 😉

  15. Great find for an alley!! I think my very first Thursday Door post was a door that I found in an alley. Makes me feel all sentimental. I’m a sucker for lovely brickwork and ivy too. 🙂

    haha sexy bricks! Never would have thought of that. I would have had to look through the slats of that fence, though, just to see what was there. 🙂

    All that door needs now is a Tinder profile.

    You had me hooked at the first line too 🙂
    Like MJ, my favourite photo is the one with the red windows with black bars. The contrasting brick arch is icing on the cake 🙂

  22. I love your slick approach. Both my and my sister’s ex homes were on numbers 19 (different Ljubljana streets). My 19 was an ‘open house’ which meant all kinds of stuff went on in there. I conclude that no way any 19 girl could ever be a girl next door.
