A Vintage Ladder

At a antique show in the spring I purchased a vintage ladder to display/hold afghans.

Once I got it home, there was only one place to put it and as you can see below, it really needs something more:

So I decided to make a banner to dress it up a bit:

Much better I think.  And some closer views of the banner:

I made it using bits of things I already had including Memory Makers rub-on letters I have had for years.

And some closer views

The colour is a bit washed out here,  it's really more tan in colour.

I am linking this up to Tweak It Tuesday #51 over at Cozy Little House.

Thanks for stopping by!

What a lovely banner! I especially love how it's a banner with a tiny banner on it - that's way cool!

Banner has finished the look you were going for. So pretty with all the touches from the lace to the wooden bits to the letters.
