Knock, Knock

This is the door knocker on my front door, very French Country! When setting up this second blog of mine, I did so with the idea to create a blog that would be about The Comforts Of My Home. I wanted to welcome all of you, my sweet blog friends, into my home.
In order to make my home as comfortable for you as possible, I am conducting a survey between now and Feb 7th. You can participate by checking the boxes on the Poll at the top of my side bar. I am leaving this post up until the end of the survey. Please vote....and have a fabulous week!
Welcome Home,
Penny

  6. Penny, I love that doorknocker! I have always loved lions, and that's a handsome one. I have my eye on something similar for our door. :-)

    I love your blog and anything you want to share, but I'll take the poll.

    XO,

  16. You have a lovely home and look very comfy in that recliner. Your door knocker reminds me of Ebenezer Scrooge.

    Have a wonderful week.

  17. Oh, I love the Christmas Carol and Ebenezer Scrooge. The knocker is beautiful. After I made the first comment and signed off, I was struck with the thought that the Scrooge comment could be taken negatively and I did not mean it so!! No.

  22. What a striking entry your door must make with that beautiful door knocker and the red door! Lovely!
    Love your animal print PJ's and the beautiful sunset in the previous posts! :)

  23. I love your lion's head door knocker...he looks especially striking against your beautiful red door. I did the poll, Penny, and I checked EVERYTHING, of course! :-) I love the variety of fun things you blog about.

    I got wary of *just* cooking all the time on my blog, so I branched out into a little of this, a little of that, but I would miss not seeing a recipe from your kitchen if you stopped posting them, that's for sure! Your blog is such an inspiration (both of them, actually!). :-)
