Door push plates for Alphabe-Thursday

Every week I receive a lovely email newsletter from my friend Judy aka Brittany Byways.
She always has lots of lovely Quimper items for sale, antique, vintage and new pieces.


Recently she offered a pair of blue and white door push plates which I knew immediately were destined to be mine.
Luckily I was the first of her clients to email back about them and within days they arrived here in Normandy.
Here they are enhancing our pristine white bedroom door, don't they look the bees knees?
Knew they would!
FYI it's the door that isn't straight not Mr B's handiwork.

  2. I've never had any door push plates, but they are such a WONDERFUL idea. I HATE the dirty smudges on doors that are constantly being pushed open and closed!

  14. Oh, wow. These are so gorgeous. I've never seen anything like this except in brass.

    It is like door jewelry almost.

  15. They are beautiful!

    My mum used to make push door plates from dried flowers and seeds. We had them all over our house.
