Knock, knock...

This fantastic specimen is the door knocker from our old front door.  We had to replace the door this past fall.  We forgot to take down the knocker!!  We phoned the contractor -- he had tossed the whole door, knocker included, into a dumpster.  We had the nerve to ask if by any chance it could be retrieved.  He said he might just possibly try...

Days and days passed...and then one day it appeared on the door step.  We are so grateful to have it back.  It's a beauty!  We aren't ready to give it a more permanent home...for now it looks lovely on the living room book cases.

  1. Does it need to get polished and put back up on the new door?


I get really jazzed about comments and would love to hear from you!
