alternative doorstop

One obvious sign that I'm in nesting mode is that I was shopping around for a door stop recently. People who rarely stay at home don't even bother with unnecessaries like tools to prevent doors from slamming shut. Well, I was and my boyfriend's beat up high school Shakespeare book as stopper was beginning to get on my nerves. When you want to enjoy a cross breeze you have to deal with the persistent slamming. Anywaysimobsessedwithhomepurchases, I happily came across this Schleuderball from Kwikshop and knew I had found the one. Although it wasn't the most pleasant thing to lug around in my tote while cycling through Berlin it was worth it.
Even though this rich leather ball will never be used for any German recreational sports it will be very appreciated.

I had originally debated on buying that nautical monkey fist knot stopper that's been circulating the blogs but spotting it in the uncommongoods catalog left a bad taste in my mouth. Not to say this piece isn't luscious but I just wasn't compelled.
If I were to go the nautical route I'd want something authentic with some memory in it.

Those doorstops are great - although I can picture my stupid dogs trying to run off with one of them!

:D Yes, I think you should get to know this enthusiast and perhaps apprentice under them.
The natural rope sailor whisk brush from L&W has your name all over it.
