Banister Decor

Funny how we get inspired by the strangest things sometimes, well at least I do!  My dear daughter placed her purse on the banister one day and any other given time, I would have asked her to put her 'things' away where they belong. But, once I saw her knitted bag dangling from from the banister post, I decided it actually didn't look too bad and hmm, maybe I should make a little bag to co-ordinate with the rooms. Until this time, I never really gave the banisters much thought but it wouldn't hurt to dress them up a bit too!
I knew right away what the banister decor bag would look like or at least similar to. I have always loved this beautiful, ruffled bag.
The image of the bag and truck is actually the blog header for this fabulously inspiring Faded Plains blog and I drool everytime I pop on her blogSo, having two sources of inspiration, this is what I came up with for my banister decor.

It's a bit 'pristine' and perhaps a bit 'too clean' for my tastes these days though. Thinking the ruffled bag needs a good bath in tea water to give it a good dose of tea staining :) but will let it rest there for a few days and then decide.
Thanks so much for stoppin' by!


  1. Too funny my Mom aka MARMIE made us girls each a ruffle bag last year..and you know where I kept them? The Bannister...I loved how they looked there.
