Adding A Door Knocker to Give House A Personality Boost

    Hi Crystal - very sharp color combination!! I never heard nuthin 'bout a pineapple symbolizing ANYTHING but hospitality - of course, I suppose that could be open to interpretation!! But, I really think you're safe up there in CT. It looks gorgeous!!
