Knock, Knock

Who's there you might ask?

This group of good looking door-knockers! They caught my eye this morning while I was installing a job in Old Town, Alexandria. As the crew was planting I took a stroll around the block and snapped a few photos of some door eye candy I couldn't wait to share.

I saw a few traditional-shout out to my home state of VA with the Dogwood, and holla to my southern college town of Charleston with that gorgeous Pineapple!

A few old world perhaps:

Of course being this close to DC there were A few patriotic:

One rustic:

And one that was just plain FUN!

We don't have a knocker, and I'm not sure if our HOA will allow it, but if they DID, these would be in the running.

I could use this as tribute to my koi:

Or perhaps this because of our love of the beach:

Do you have a knocker? If so what does it look like? And if not, what would YOU put on your front door?

Happy Thursday!


  1. I adore this post! I too love door knockers!! I have a silver/pewter one that's a bit regal looking. If I could dream up a dah-ling one, I would love a a giant stylish bow...finish would be determined by the door :)

  2. Ha ha, that Koi is too much fun!

    Please come join my *Cupcake Challenge*, I promise it will be loads of fun!!
