Anyone that has been visiting around my blog lately knows that I have not had a lot of creativity/repurposing going on for a while now. Just other things going on, however during my rounds of the "land of blog" I saw where Joan over at "Anything Goes Here" came up with a wonderful way to use vintage wooden hangers. Since I was looking for a unique way to hang my necklaces - "My ears perked up" or "Eyes wide open" reading her post - not sure which. I knew I had some vintage wooden hangers and went on a journey to find them. The special one I wanted to find is from a famous hotel, and the hanger was made before it was renovated back in the 70's. Still have not located it, but will keep looking. Could not have gone to far as I had it after moving here and I only have 4 closets in this place. In the meantime - found these 2. This one is still in the process...........
I don't know what kind of wood it is made from (extremely hard wood), but I am having major issues attaching the cup hooks - still working on that. It was made prior to August, 1959, as Hawaii is listed separate from the USA. I had already hung some of my necklaces on this vintage hanger from New Orleans.
I did not come up with this idea on my own, and give credit to
Joan @ Anything Goes Here - Thanks for the inspiration.
Linking up with Susan @ "Metamorphosis Monday".

My post that disappeared when blogger had some problems recently never came back, but I am not complaining. Google has provided this service to us for free, so can't complain.
You would have thought that I would have got more done during our "down" time - but Nooooo! I think about the only thing I accomplished was add more things to my "To Do " list. I think I added 4 more and only marked 1 off - something wrong with that ratio. :-D
Only in the 60's, and lows in the 40's the next few days - Crazy weather !!
Have a great week!
