thing on the stairs


i dreamt i found a little piece of ivory and a purple rock in some weird warehouse and then i stacked them in the middle of the stairway. i used to know the term for the thing they're on... but you know what? it got pushed out by other crap. go brain!

maybe it WAS an ear! it was kinda ear shaped... hm. now i must contemplate that...

the banister is the horizontal part of the staircase, that gives you something to hold on to. there's a particular name for the thing at the END of the banister. it's not a newel post cuz those are in the middle of it. *sigh*. i just can't remember.

Sara said...
