    Let me just say that Brandon’s response is (1) hilarious (2) VERY typical of what my husband says about my decor choices and (3) hilarious!! Score indeed!

    I agree if I had a dollar everytime my husband has said. “I don’t hate it”, “I think it will grow on me” or my favorite “You spent how much on this?”

    I would be happy hearing “I don’t hate it.” That would be a victory indeed! I love it.

    Nicole, I love this! It’s perfect.

    Jordan says that to me all the time when I show him stuff I want. It’s a victory, for sure.

    Hate it? I totally completely love.Love.LOVE it! :)

    But if I got a “I don’t hate it” from Bill I would probably fall over! He usually subscribes to the “if you don’t have anything nice to say don’t say anything at all” philosophy.

    Hahaha, I don’t hate it either – I love it! I guess “I don’t hate it” is better than a “meh” and a shoulder shrug. I think he’s adorable and want to come knock on your door now! Wait that sounds creepy… don’t worry I’m all the way in Canada and won’t be stopping by ; ) lol.

    GAH! We have an actual, real woodpecker outside our office who seems to think the cedar siding is just like tree bark. There must be lots of tasty bugs in the office walls.

    I’m clearly sharing a brain with you lately because I just added this to my Anthropologie cart. My husband doesn’t understand it but says it is better than the hooks I like so bam!, I jumped on that.

    That would fit so great to our front door.
    Well, I just copied the link and sent it to my son…hint hint….Christmas is coming up soon! ;)
    Maybe for a change he won’t ask my hubby what he could get me for Christmas.

    I think it’s adorable. Is it hard to use hung upright? You can’t flip the tail and make it knock that way.

      I know, but it looks wrong to me hung the other way! It still works just fine. :)

    Hello from Atlanta!
    My wife and found this knocker on Pinterest, and we really want to order it… Our front door has holes already drilled, and we can’t find a measurement on Anthropology’s website as to the holes needed for this one… do you know the space from center hole to center hole?
