The Ladies Room Door Art Series: Part Thirty-seven


From Linda, Ms. Wuf, on the door of Reynold’s Colosseum, the home of the North Carolina State Wolfpack.

Below is a vintage sign for sale at Branching Out in University Mall in Chapel Hill, North Carolina. It’s the first ladies room sign I’ve  found for sale. The price, at $135, seemed a bit steep though.

The ladies room signs at my new gym, Planet Fitness.


From Candace, The Pecan Lodge in Dallas, Texas.

Inside, Candace found this cross, which she says reminded her of Where’s Waldo or a hidden objects book.


From Greta, who found these cool doors when she was in Mississippi, as she says, “Playing the slots.”



From Abby, signs created by kids for the Moonlite Diner in Ft. Lauderdale.

From Joanna, the elephant area at the National Zoo in Washington, DC.

From Susan, Coffee and Cinnamon in Durham North Carolina.

Also from Susan, art inside the ladies room at Floozies in Louisa, Virginia.


And the men’s


And I took these at Vine’s in Durham, North Carolina


At Truckyard, in Dallas, Texas

A friend of Ken’s sent these! Wow. Almost makes me want to be a man (although I’ve never heard a man report seeing one so elegant).



But I’ve never wanted a you-know-what like Dr. Freud claimed women did.

Have you?

The Ladies Room Door Art Series: Part Thirty-three



More doors!

From daughter Laura and son-in-law Matt, Amsterdam Falalel in Dallas, Texas.

I snapped this one at the Salt Grass Steakhouse in San Marcos, Texas.


I met these cool cowboys inside the ladies room.




This is the Caso Rio on the San Antonio Riverwalk. Cliff and I spent a few nights there before we met up with the kids in Austin for Christmas.

Bella on the River in San Antonio. Wonderful Italian cuisine. We sat right by the water and waved at the passengers in the tour boats as they floated by.


Doughnuts and chocolate glaze for dessert!


We love the San Antonio Riverwalk. It’s romantic and festive. You can get some good hotel deals on Travelocity.


More drinks by the river.


On to Austin! The Pinthouse. Love those brass letters.


Now we’re in Greenpond, New Jersey. Cliff was there in the fall for his cousin’s anniversary celebration, held in the Green Pond Firehouse. The women’s room door…



And the men’s. Cliff’s cousin Robert is a fireman, and he reports that firehouses often have creative doors, connecting, hmmm…anatomy with firefighting equipment.

Susan sent us The Asian Harbor Restaurant in Durham.



From Candace, Buzz’s Roost in Georgetown, South Carolina.


I took this one at the gas station  in Haw River, North Carolina, where Cliff loves to get coffee when we start our travels West on I-40.


And from Carol, taken at Sidewall Pizza Company in Traveler’s Rest, South Carolina. Carol reports that the bunny is significant because the restaurant is close to the 25 mile +Swamp Rabbit Bike Trail. img_3367

From Lois, the Mellow Mushroom in Burlington, North Carolina. Mellow Mushrooms consistently have creative doors. You guys are mellow and fun!


Kathy sent us this unisex door from the Girl and the Fig in Sonoma, California.


Finally, if you’re in the mood to create your own bathroom art, try toilet paper tubes. Let the work of Fritz Jacquet inspire you! Check our his art here.



The Ladies Room Door Art Series: Part Thirty-one



From Jan, Goombay’s Grille and Raw Bar in Kill Devil Hills, North Carolina. Below, the ladies room door a miniature golf course on the Outer Banks. These doors make me crave the warm beach days of summer.

And also from Jan, the Badlands Saloon and Grille in Wall, South Dakota.


I found this door at Jason’s Deli in Durham, North Carolina


Daughter Laura and husband Matt found these doors on their babymoon in Bermuda.

Another from Jan, Michael’s Seafood Restaurant in Carolina Beach.


From Carol, the door at Tumbleweed Restaurant, a Tex Mex grill in Chillicothe, Ohio.



And that wraps up another in our Ladies Room Door Art Series! Thank you, one and all.

The Ladies Room Door Art Series: Part Twenty-one



Above, this door graces the entrance to the ladies room at The Calgary Stampede. Below, a Pizza Hut in Swift Current, Saskatchewan. These fine doors were sent to us by reader Cindy.

Cindy wrote that she discovered the doors below “at a Greek restaurant in Banff. At first it was kind of confusing as to which was which.”


I asked my friend, classical scholar Dr. Ken Ostrand, to identify the figures for us. The lady above is Athena. Ken writes about the gentleman below: “I’ve always felt it was Zeus, but until recently the majority view was that it was Poseidon. Now authorities are shifting to Zeus. It’s a magnificent bronze piece, about 6’6, naked, and powerful, from ca. 470 BC, if memory serves me right.”

And finally, Cindy  found this sign at a bar in NW Wisconsin.

The wreath graces the bathroom door at the Blissful Journey Day Spa here in Hillsborough.


This tall lady peeks out from the ladies room door of Food Lion in Hillsborough.


I snapped this elegant sign at the Black Bear Cafe and Bistro in Warrenton, Virginia.


Reader Silvia sent this shadowy lady from the IKEA in Merriam, Kansas.


Silvia found the  door below at The Chef, a diner in Manhattan, Kansas.


And the fancy feather lady at The Folly Theater in Kansas City, Missouri.

Follie Theater

From Ericka, comes a door on Marco Island, Florida.


Carol, famous for The Potty Trip of Potty Trips, discovered this door at the Evans Prairie County Club, The Villages, Florida.


And another from Carol, Morgan’s Tavern in New Bern, North Carolina.


Finally, a lady shape on the wall at my beloved Southpoint Mall. I think she’s got a nice funky edge to her.



And that wraps it up for Edition Number Twenty-one of our Ladies Room Door Art Series. I can’t tell you how excited I am to receive an email with new doors! Thank you all so much!
