the Equestrian Hallway....



the hallway is ready! Well actually the floor needs one more coat...eh-ehm... but you know... I was a bit tired of it all... :p So I'm using it.. the floor will just have to do, for now!

the old riding helmet is in velvet black, and is a gift from my sister. Found at one englsih carboot sale :) The black horse hooks were a buy from ebay.
Rusty old horseshoes from Ole's farm... I had other plans for these, but then fell in love with this idea that sprung in my head one late night!
and YES YES YES I know that the luck will "run out" when they are facing this way... but I have another saying.... if it's hung like this over a door the luck pours over the persons walking through. And seeing as these are on my stairs I imagine my stars will be bathed in luck for anyone that walks them ;)
If I had a penny for every time people told me turn them around... I'd be wealthy! Ha ha...

A dainty detail at the top of the window.
I am not sure about the chair and I am thinking about selling it. If you are interested, let me know. It has been painted and distressed in a lovely pale turquoise.

The basket under the stool is for shoes :) I can never keep shoes all lined up, so a basket is the best solution.
Hope you enjoyed this little tour of my hallway :)

Så fint i gangen din! Likte så godt vinduet, gardinene og trappa. Både fint og praktisk med kott under trappa. Lyst, lekker og innbydende gang.

Hei! følger bloggen din selv om jeg ikke har blogg selv ;) men, en liten ting. Du kan ikke ha hesteskoene den veien! Ifølge gammel overtro lekker lykken ut fra de, hvis du har de vendt nedover. Lønner seg ikke i ett nytt hus! :)Kjempefin gang!

Gangen din har blitt utroooolig lekker! Jeg tar gjerne en kaffekopp til i den trappa! =)
