I went to one of my favorite thrift shops today and found some fun goodies- some vintage trays, some old floral contact paper, a vintage math primer with charming graphics, and my inspiration of the day- vintage wooden hangers! These come in all shapes and sizes and lend themselves to many projects- today I was focusing in on the pants type hangers that open and spring close when you move the hook. I especially love those hangers with markings- hotel names, etc. They are perfect for a different way to hang photos, project notes, even children's artwork- without having to damage the piece with pins or tape- and are easily changed out. Its easy to make a fun wall grouping, like the one I have pictured of charming old dog photos (I love to collect dog stuff...). I can just imagine a row of my grandkids' school pics or artwork!
Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around. Leo Buscaglia
I am Linda Dresselhaus... married, the mother of three grown children, have five sweet and lively grandchildren, and two spoiled pugs. I partner with my daughter, Liana, in an antiques and art business- we love junking and creating! I sell on etsy and at a few other sales during the year, the biggest being Junk Bonanza! We also have full time space at Pond Road Antiques in Mankato, Minnesota! I love spending time with my family, hanging out at the lake, photography, writing, baking, decorating, reading, creating artwork and re-use projects, and gardening.
I'm so glad you stopped by!
