About Forestwoodfolkart

Scandinavian culture, literature and traditions are close to my heart, even though I am Australian. I have Scandinavian, Frisian and Prussian/Silesian ancestry and for that reason, I feel a connection with that part of the world. I am an avid Nordic Crime fiction reader, and enjoy photography, writing and a variety of cooking and crafts, and traditional decorative art forms. Politically aware and egalitarian by nature, I have a strong environmental bent.

    • That door is the historic Nidaros cathedral in Trondheim, Norway. I also loved the contrast of the red robes. Wonderful history in that door. Thanks for your comment, Desley jane

    Good variety of doors! Age old to new as can come. Wonder if our new doors are going to last as those old doors still do.

  3. Many doors are now made of veneered chip board and when water gets into it they swell up and rot. The lovely doors above tell a story. Modern doors just look bland but do function in shutting out or in, a space.

    • The doors of the modern age will wither and rot. They will no longer be around in 100 years and I guess that is not altogether bad. Yet I wonder what will doors be like in 100 years…some kind of polymer?

    A beautiful collection of doors, Amanda. I love the wooden ones with the ornate carvings, but I also think the decorated one from the Netherlands is fabulous. Doors nowadays just ‘ain’t what they used ti be’!

    Hello again, Amanda. I’ve just nominated you for the Premio Dardos award. I’m not sure whether your blog is now award free, but if it isn’t and you accept this one, the rules are on my last post. There are no questions to answer or questions to write for this.
