DIY Décor: The Handbag Coat Rack

This is something I’ve been wanting to share since the holidays, but hadn’t taken the opportunity to snap pictures of it. My grandparents gave me a coat rack for Christmas, which had been on my imaginary wishlist, to be used for just this purpose: handbag display! As ridiculous as it probably sounds, this is something my mother and I saw in a house we were looking at when we were in the process of relocating to the east coast. The owner had done such a fantastic job decorating her house, I’d felt like I was on more of a décor tour than anything else. As I recall she had interwoven scarves and made an opulent little display of the coat rack, leaving it right inside the master bedroom door for easy access while getting ready. Practical and pretty – who wouldn’t be inspired?

I want to thank everyone so much for all your support of Literary Inklings (if you missed it, you can read all about it here). I’ll be working very hard to keep both the new blog and The Girl Who Stole the Eiffel Tower fresh and fun; I may be a bit wobbly as I learn to understand being the sole editor of two blogs, but balance is in there somewhere and with a lot of dedication I’m hoping I can find it!
