Welcome to Paw in the Door!  I am delighted you stopped by.

Our doorstops are lovingly designed and handcrafted from the wonderful sanctuary that is my home.  It is my hope that in purchasing and receiving of one of my doorstops, you will enjoy this cheerful and functional addition to your decor—sent with the very warmest of wishes from my home to yours.

Home has long occupied two distinct halves of my heart: one for the English countryside in which I was raised; and the other for the Canadian prairies I moved to in my early twenties.  It is from within the quaint hedgerows and beneath the vast skies of these beautifully opposing landscapes that I draw my inspiration for design.
I have always been a great lover of animals and handmade crafts, and Paw in the Door is certainly the product of that combined love.  My own cats, Merlin and Camelot, inspired me to create this collection of animal themed doorstops in a variety of charming and whimsical designs, that aims to deliver both function and fashion in equal measure.

Thank you for letting us be a small part of what truly makes a house a home.
