I will start with a picture of my own decoration on my door. Before this year it has hung alone on my door but this year my door knocker is there and it doesn’t sit so well. As I am toying with the idea of a new door this coming year I am not going to worry too much
Last weekend I was out and about in Cambridgeshire and I spotted some lovely knocker and wreath combinations
I love the cheeky little pear knocker, first I have seen. Seen in Cambridge
I will let you into a secret, I don’t like this shape of knocker. It’s a very popular shape and I never take pictures of it but doesn’t it look better surrounded by a wreath? Also Cambridge
Hard to see but there is an Ely knocker hidden in this frosted wreath. I was visiting my friend Leonie who knows of my interest in knockers and was happy to look at local examples as we walked and talked.
Easier to spot this brass anchor in this one, also Ely.
A little closer to home, a splash of colour in Braunston, Northamptonshire
The other day I was reading a blog called www.spitalfieldslife.com and they had posted some artwork by a artist called Julie Price. I was excited to see several pictures of Spitalfield knockers with wreaths, and she has kindly permitted me to post them here. You can find them and others on her website www.passionforpaint.net
