Decorating with vintage porch balusters was fun
as I walked around the house the other day trying to find a special place for them.
I knew that they would look great incorporated in a vignette, or on a mantel;
however, I wanted to do something a bit different.
So what did I do?
I placed them on the ledge of the dining room window:
however, I decided that I may like to display them in another way.
By hanging them from the window latch.
Like a bit of jewelry for the window panes.
Such a pretty pendant, wouldn’t you say?
Mary Alice found a bundle of these vintage porch balusters. I gasped when I saw them.
Later that day, Mary Alice, being Mary Alice offered to share these balusters with me. Really?
“OK, I will take one.”
“You should always have a pair,” she said.
I am so happy that she talked me into taking two of them . . . no major arm twisting went on.
As the pair of these look pretty happy in the bay window of my dining room.
It was a great day of antiquing. I truly love shopping with these ladies as we love to share
what we find and many times are on the lookout for specific items for one another. Special times.
Cannot believe September is already here. That means I give myself permission
to start the Fall decor. But then again, I cheated a bit and started in a room the other day.
Have a wonderful day! I will be thinking of crisp air and the spectacular colors of the leaves
while the temps are still in the high 80’s.
