Foxy Knocker

DSC01134

Happy Bank Holiday, London birdies! Couldn't resist taking a pic of this rather handsome fellow on the door next to Ryantown on Columbia Road last week. You can also see that I've recently taken to photographing piles of shop bags (see pic below). However, you should note that these are extra-special shop bags, hand-screen printed by Rob Ryan and featuring a cute wee birdy stamp in the corner. Swoon!

    We had a knocker just like this one in my childhood home – not sure why, but it was always a talking point!

    If I knew where to get the fox I would buy him like a shot.

    I just love this site… full of delicious, girly ideas and treats. Scrolling through again I saw the Foxy Knocker pic, which now has special significance.
    My mother was over from Oz two years ago and saw a small fox door knocker on a Cotswold house and, subsequently, searched high and low for the same one. No success.
    A recent return visit to Kent and what did we find… this identical foxy knocker (minus blue door) in a beaut antique shop in Rye. Not expensive!
    She went home a very happy traveller and the customs people were most interested in the contents of her hand luggage :)

    Oh my goodness! I’ve photographed this little guy, but he was looking rather different:
