There's A New Man In My Life!


The first thing I did when I moved into this house was to remove the large gaudy doorbell that hung in the foyer. The doorbell played a lovely chiming bells melody that happened to be the same tune played by the doorbell in our very first home, a 1895 victorian my husband and I purchased as newlyweds.  Oh how I loved that house and the memories flooded back every time the doorbell rang, which was frequently with curious children exploring a new home and neighborhood.  The sentimentality lasted about a week or just long enough to get an electrician in to remove it.  That was 10 years ago and I have been looking for a unique, preferably antique, door knocker ever since.  I found this one a few weeks ago in a local antiques store.  I was exploring the recesses of a dark jewelry cabinet {the owner kindly allows me to pick through the jewelry without assistance} and there he was, on his side, beneath a pile of necklaces.  It was love at first site and since he literally fell into my hand we were obviously meant to be together.  My husband likes him too!
