Use More of What You Have

These are all a bit of a stretch but I DO love the idea for an old CD case to become a container for a bagel.I also thought the paper clips to hold wires was pretty smart- and very good uses for an old “college” fridge and filing cabinet!

Use What You Have!

These have been floating around the internet world but in case you missed them I thought I would share them. Very clever ideas for re-using items you might already have.The old chair upside down is very interesting but I love the bicycle turned into bathroom sink-especially using the basket for towels! The old tennis racquets turned into mirrors were also very clever(great for a beach house) and what a fun idea for hooks in your mudroom for hanging coats!

Some friends are just so clever. My friend merely took a small white bag,glued on the pink ribbon,found a cute color for tissue paper and voila! She then added a tete-a-tete(little daffodils) as the gift. So adorable and a great peek at spring!

I just love collections. This friend of mine collects beautiful wooden canes everywhere she goes-travelling,antique stores….she also collects these gorgeous antique hat pins.
If you have any collection you’d like to share-I will blog it for others to see.

Really DOWN now!

What I also will miss is little goodies like these:
