Thursday Doors 15/12/22: Best of 2022

Are you ready for a door feast? Here are two massive Mexcessive galleries with a selection of Thursday Doors posted this year.

I love doing this kind of overview posts, especially since I don’t need to upload anything new, merely look back in my Media and select the favourites. And since this is the last door post of the year, it’s only proper to have a proper door party.

First, a special mention goes to a door that spurred a few creative outpourings for our host Dan’s second Thursday Doors Writing Challenge, which made me really happy.

Proposed as visual prompt for Thursday Doors Writing Challenge 2022.

Dan has just unleashed another challenge, namely for the new Thursday Doors badge that appears at the end of each TD post. Any door lover can create it but only those who post doors may vote for the favourite. I don’t have any idea yet but there is still time to come up with something by the end of the year.

My first gallery for today is of various old door photos posted this year and some door gifts which I received with much gratitude. Thank you, Crystal and father! Crystal’s photo of the amazing door painting, which she found in McMenamins Edgefield in Troutdale, Oregon, is this post’s featured photo.

My second gallery contains only door photos that I actually took this year, in reverse as they were posted, from the newest to the oldest. I spent three and a half summer months in Slovenia, so the majority of the photos are from there, but a couple of trips were made in Italy as well.

Thursday Doors end-of-year recaps from previous years:

A Slovenian in Italy for love. Blogger, photographer, translator and would-be writer who would be a writer if she wrote. Plus reluctant but emerging poet. Beware.

  1. I am so glad you began with the door that inspired people during the writing challenge. I used that door as the opening of a two-episode short story post that may grow to be something bigger at some point.

    I know how hard it must be for you to choose, Manja. The large galleries work for you. Every photo is beautiful. I am partial to the cat hostel.

    Thank you for your participation in and support of this challenge. If I don’t find other posts by you in the next few weeks, I hope you have a Merry Christmas and a wonderful New Year.

    1. Thank you, Dan. I’m glad that I thought of starting with this literary door. It’s a good symbol. May it grow, your story.

      I forgot to include links to previous end-of-year Thursday Doors posts, so I have added them just now at the end of my post above, if you’re curious to see them again.

      I will do at least two more posts: my final Calendar 2021 and a certain birthday post. I believe I’ll send you my badge proposal in the mail (if I get a good idea).

      Thank you for the good wishes, I wish you all the best as well. Let’s door on.

    1. Thank you, Not Pam! You were the first to choose this door and wrote to it. 🙂

      If you are curious, I have just added links to all previous end-of-year door posts at the end of my post above, which I had previously forgotten. Always happy to see you around.

  2. Enjoyed going through this collection of doors,Manja. Each photograph is bright, beautiful and has character. Your captions make it all the more interesting. As always, San Gimigano reminds me of my visit to Italy. Your photographs make me want to visit and if not visit, paint. Thank you for this beautiful post.

    1. Thank you, Bonnie Rae! I hope you’re having a magical Christmas day and that it’s not toooo cold where you are. By the way, I posted my complete 2021 calendar on the 19th. I remember you said you were looking forward to it. All well to you and yours.


  3. There are so many marvelous doors here that I have a hard time choosing. Thanks for the multiple shout outs, and for including my photo of amore in the birthday post, too. I absolutely love the door at the very top, which inspired others. It inspires me too. The painting of the red door inspired someone to recreate it in one of the gardens at McMenamin’s Edgefield. I have now decided to return one day and to try to find the door for you in real life. I hope it will be as compelling as the artwork is. Please always post your favourite doors. It helps us see our world better and to understand you better.

    1. Oh, how wonderful, Crystal. How I wish I could go there with you and explore and find this door for real!! How lovely to hear that my first door inspires you too. And your last sentence is so touching. To understand me better has not been on many minds lately. Hugs from Rome with warm wishes.
