Thursday Doors, The Greek Island of Corfu

  4. Whenever I think of Corfu I think of Durrell, Andrew. I read the Alexandria Quartet if high school and it has never left my mind. Utterly spoiled by the sun? Or is it part of the islands charm? –Curt

  6. Yes, we can really see the effect of the sun in some of these. My handyman side wants to jump in and fix, refinish, and replace whenever I see a collection like this. Great finds 🙂
