Shabby Organization

I am constantly looking for new ways to use vintage items to organize with panache. Here is a silver tray I picked up at the thrift store (minus one handle). With some delicious pink paint and a wave of the shabby wand, it is now my message center in my kitchen. The lemon dish (or any trinket dish) makes an awesome post-it holder. The sweet milk glass hen corrals the box tops (how about paper clips?) for my kids' elementary school. Lastly, a sweet Lefton vase has a new life as a pen and pencil cup. A neat vintage tag would like nice tied to the handle too! That's my new re-do for today.

Later Sugah,

Enough already!

Sometimes I cannot get off of start for a creative project because I do not have all of the tools I want *smile* or need. Such is the case with this blog. I have not contacted anyone to help me design it the way I envision it - vintage eye candy for the soul. However, some dear friends of mine inspired me to get off of start anyway and get on with it. (thank you!) So, in the future I hope you will share with me the journey as my blog evolves into what I hope will be a fun and creative experience! Passing it on - Carpe Diem! Heidi
