The one with the door knockers

Two weeks ago, I blogged about a visit to Utrecht. On our walk through the city, we came across some wonderful looking door knockers. I love beautiful doors! Like to see more? I have a whole pinboard filled with beautiful doors of here.

  3. Wow! You found all of these knockers on your visit? Were they all in the same neighborhood, I wonder? Our door knocker fell off a couple of years ago, and we haven't replaced it yet.

    1. You mean the one with David Bowie? I've seen parts of it, a long time ago. Should I give it another go?

    1. It was raining that day, maybe that's why they weren't happy :-)

  7. It's interesting how most of them are lions (are they lions? Something like that). I wonder if there is significance to that. It's a cool collection of photos--I see it growing!

    1. I think they are! I don't know why many of them are lions. I am keeping my eyes open and there might be a part two of this post :-)

  14. I love this collection of photos! I'm going to have to remember to keep an eye out for an interesting door knocker for our next house! The first thing I noticed about them was the expression on the lion's face. Some look so sad!

    1. Yes they do! It was a bit rainy that day, or maybe they were just hungry...

  15. Wow the door knocker looks absolutely fabulous. I never knew they could add so much glamour to the door. I think I should replace mine with brass door knockers too.
