I have had several emails from friends saying they have found one of my knockers at eBay or online. I even received websites of restorative door knockers and all have been great. Actually, there was a perfect hand knocker on eBay that was extremely reasonable. But as one blogger friend said, the search is as much fun as the find. So, I am waiting until I get to France, specifically, Alsace Lorraine area, where I know I saw many back in 1981. Something about the authenticity of finding one in France is very exciting.
The collage above is framed and sits on our buffet in the dining area. It is composed of our photos and is very special. At first, I felt rather shy about photographing doors, but the more photos I took, the braver I got.
