Two Useful Vintage Items

I thought I'd share with you a couple of items that I use in my studio to hold different things that I will eventually use.

As you can see I've taken an old birdcage and converted it into a caddy for vintage threads and a few pincushion creations.

It's great because I can see what colors I have on hand, ready to use right away.

As you know I have a thing for these old wig heads.

This one I use to display different jewelry and any other fun pieces.

If I had enough room I think I would have a shelf of these.

I could display all my "bling" that is waiting in a box for me to use!

Wouldn't that be a fun shelf!

Lastly, I want to tell you about a FABULOUS Giveaway my friend Sue of Bella Shabby is having!

It's a Double Giveaway, two great items.

So be sure to stop by her blog and get your name in!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

I love both of your ideas, it is so nice to actually see what we have rather than did in some box for it. I have a wig head, I think I will do just what you did with your treasures. Thank you. Florence

You are SO creative. I love your ideas, and your blog is so inspirational to me. Hope we get to meet someday, we're practically neighbors! (I live in MT. Angel, but you probably figured that out by now).

Thank you for stopping by my blog, and thank YOU for having such a wonderful blog.
