Taking Susan's advice regarding what to plant in my
new old anodised bullet saucer planter, I went looking for a Spider plant.
I had a feeling my Mum had a spider plant lurking somewhere in her overgrown garden. I asked her if I could have it for my planter - Mum's are good for giving you the things they no longer really want.
It looks better at my place anyway.
This is a photograph of the other side of the front entry (I'm sitting on the green butterfly chair).
As you can see, I use the door knob from the study door as a coat/bag rack. (I carry a hand-made cherry-red fabric tote, the other bag is #2 son's library bag which I still haven't packed away.)
Jason can't stand that I use the door knob. What can one do? It is the first protrusion I see when walking through the front door, so I dump my bag there while I bundle the brood into the house.
If I leave my bag on the floor, #3 son does a runner with it. The child shows me no mercy.
Therefore, I need a hook; preferably a funky hook. I didn't realise how many takes there were of the humble coat hook.
Here are a few of my favourites:

This was originally my first choice but I'm starting to think it has been overdone. I don't know. I shouldn't over-analyse, it is only a coat rack, after all.

This is a very cool idea. It would mean never having to lose keys ever again...
