Harness ring "valance"

You find harness rings from old single and double-trees at junk shops all over.  Loving rusty old metal, my wife and I started collecting them.  Many folks put them on the wall as rustic coat hooks, but we had enough old hooks around.  So we decided to string them out on a fat oak stick and make them into vine hooks for the philodendron "valence" we were starting to grow at the top of our kitchen window.  Now they are comfortable entwined.

Thanks for sharing!!
