The Newel Post



It's our newel post.




I like the detail and the wood grain. The cats like the flat top to perch on.




Carved designs round the top and dentil molding add special touches.

Little details like this make our 101 year old home even more special to us!

I love carved wooden details like this. You just don't see this so much in newer homes.

very similar to mine, although I am sure my cats wished it did not have a final on top!

Hi Carol. I love your pretty post too! What a treasure your home is. I'd love to see a picture of a kitty perched up there! Thanks for popping in to see me.
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Your staircase is just lovely Carol, and the detail on that post is gorgeous!

This is beautiful Carol. I love the detail in older homes. Sometimes I go by certain things in my home and touch them just wondering and thankful - sometimes I have to pinch myself knowing I get to live in such a wonderful home.
We are going to get back to painting. My husband wants to hire someone to finish the trimming - too high!
Hope you have a great week,
Kathy

I love the woodwork detail. The perfect accessory is a perched cat : ) P.S. Those pie recipes you posted look great. I am planning to make the chicken pot pie this week!
