When you live in an 1800's farmhouse...

you lose some of the simple luxuries we take for granted.
Like for example... a doorbell.

So I bought a wrought iron bell and hung it by the front door. Good idea, right?
Aesthetically pleasing and quite practical.
Not one person has ever used it in 13 years.

Okay. That didn't work.

Then I bought a wireless doorbell. But the manufacturer "forgot" to mention in the directions, the thing can go off for no reason, at any time.
Day or night!
Talk about giving someone a heart attack!! They should throw in a defibrillator with each purchase.

Needless to say, the wireless doorbell was removed.

Then when I saw sweet Pammie of
Goldie Loo Woodworks
made the sign I was hoping praying she would make, I just about did a back flip!

It's perfect!
I can't wait until I hear my first "Ding Dong."

Pammie makes awesome signs!! Be sure to stop by her Goldie Loo Woodworks selling site.

Of course the whole time I was on the porch hanging the sign, I had my very own nosy, four legged Gladys Kravitz watching me.

We have sort of the same issue...except it is doors themselves: our entry way has 3 doors and we have had to put signs at two of them saying "Please go to door with mat in front of it". They still get it wrong.
Glad there was a sign for you....hope she has a sign for us!!

I'm sure I saw that sign on Pinterest too. Isn't it a hoot. I would have thought your four legged doorbells (alarms?) were enough.

Good post. I don't have a doorbell either! Like the sign.

I'm sorry, but I just assumed that people had been saying Ding-Dong to you for years. Learn something every day...:)

Ali, it depends on where my four legged alarms are in this old farmhouse.
