How fun are these porthole doors? I love all the charming doors and walkways of 'Sconset on Nantucket. I spent a lovely afternoon (alone!) taking photos while exploring the houses, winding streets and almost hidden bluff walks.
It is fair to say I have been obsessed with the entire beach house set for the fabulous movie Something's Gotta Give - and in particular love the swinging dining room door with the porthole (image bottom left).
As I was reviewing my photos of these doors I remembered the fun books by Wendy French and the delicious cover illustrations by one of my all-time favorite illustrators Edwin Fotheringham (top right).
So this is really an "I Spy..." of some of my favorite things!
