Imperfect Organization


For years I have shuffled around the purses I’ve accumulated.

First hanging on a closet rod…to the floor…to the other end of the rod.

Not anymore…

Thanks to Pinterest and it’s amazingly creative crafters, I found the perfect solution.  (OK, in recognition of all the downsizers, yes, I could have sold or donated some, but in my way of thinking…why get rid of a good thing that you’ve already paid for and love!?!

I started with some beautiful reclaimed wood (thanks to my friend Jan).  Then I added some antique and vintage door knobs…and walaaaaa!

OK, so it wasn’t quite that easy, but not too far from it.  There were nails, screws, epoxy glue, power tools…and of course, the purses.

Here are shots of the finished products:

I know, I know…the purse hanger in the first picture is hanging crooked…and if you look really closely you’ll see my errors (it does hang straight…I just didn’t catch it when I took the picture 🙂 ).

Just a reminder of how thankfully imperfect I am.

I LOVE how this project turned out.

What do you think?

“You’re so Cwabby?”


See this cute little hanging extender?

Well, I made it last week while Elena was here.

I love the little Hummingbird feeder, but it hung just way too high – we couldn’t see the little hummers feeding!

So off I went to find wire and my needle nose pliers.

Grab an end and twist…the other end and twist…

And Wha-laaaaaa!

It took all of 10 seconds.

I was so proud of myself!

I very loudly pronounced “I’M SO CRAFTY!”

Elena cocked her little head, looked at me and said “You’re so cwabby?”

I replied…”NO, NO, NOOOOOO”…”I’m so crafffffttttttyyyyy”.

She looked up at me again and said “Oh”.

And went off to play some more.

{sigh}

So much for my big proud moment…

It turned into a silly, giggle moment.

That’s ok, those are much more fun anyway!

I hope you have a good giggle today!

ps…Now that I look at it in the picture, I really could make it so much better…I might have to get craftier (not cwabbier). 🙂

My friend Jan


I haven’t told you about my friend Jan yet…

It’s all her fault…

Jan did it! (finger pointed away from myself, at Jan)

I can hear our husbands laugh and shake their heads now.

OK, here’s the background story… Read more
