Oh my! Can you tell that Spring is here?
It seems that between this blog and my gardening blog I’ve been doing a lot of posting about getting outside, wanting to get out and work in my garden, and resuming our home renovation projects (so we can start new projects!).
It’s gotta have something to do with Spring. I mean, I’m still feeling sick so I’m not all that peppy, but I keep having all these thoughts about getting things done around the house and tidying up the garden. It must be that feeling of renewal that spring gives a person. At least the fact that I’m starting to get excited about our reno projects and other things must be a good sign.
So you know what got me going this time? Antique door knobs. That’s right. Door knobs of all things. BTW if you like antique door knobs check out the Architectural Classics site as it has a very nice collection.
You see, if you read the post prior to this one I mentioned that our house was built in 1927. One of the few things we haven’t changed in the house is all the door knobs. We really like the antique style – they are so much more ornate and attractive than modern door knobs.
The old outer door on our enclosed back porch had colored cut glass door knobs. We got ride of the door but kept the door knobs! When we finish our living room dining room reno I’d like to put a nice French door in the opening between the kitchen and dining room, and perhaps replace the basement door with a French door as well as the two doors are almost side by side when viewed from the kitchen. I’d put the cut glass door knobs on one of these doors. Of course, I’ll have to find another set of door knobs almost exactly the same for the second door.
Does anyone else like the look of antique door knobs better than modern ones?
