Hang It Up!

Man, I've been struggling with what to blog about lately. I haven't been creating much, so nothing to show you there. I haven't been buying much, so nothing there either. Hmmmm.... I guess I will show you some of the unique towel hooks/hangers I have in my house. You will see that I obviously like to repurpose unusual items.
This is supposed to be used to measure/mark skirt hems. But I needed something to hold a towel next to my kitchen sink.
It works great! Please excuse the stains on the towel. It is "vintage" and I did not succeed in getting the stains out after I bought it from a garage sale. I still like it.

The next one is in our master bathroom. There was a boring brass hook for the hand towel. It wasn't working for me. This "hook" came from a box of junk from an estate sale. I'm not sure of its original purpose, but I just couldn't toss it. I knew I would think of something to use it for.
Again, I don't know what this is supposed to be. I picked up a bag of them at the thrift store thinking they were interesting.

I nailed it to the side of the cabinet and it "grasps" the towel perfectly.
This one isn't quite as unique, but it is one of my favorites. I had this great piece of trim and I am always looking out for these old hooks. Put them together and it makes a great accent (and towel holder) in the kids' bathroom.
Remember to always think outside the box when you come across a unique item. You just never know what you might be able to do with it!

An award! I got an award! Cindy at Tinta's Treasures gave me "The Lemonade Award." It is awarded to bloggers who show great attitude/gratitude. Wow! How sweet that she thought of me. Thank you, Cindy!

Now I am supposed to pass this along to 10 more bloggers. Yikes! How do I do that? I read a lot of blogs. I think they are all great. My brain is still sort of mush after my crazy week, so I am going to hold off on this one. That is bad, isn't it? Sorry. I'll do some thinking on this and try to get back to it next week.

Again, I want to thank everyone for their kind words and prayers for Sweet Girl. She had a great day at school today. So nice to see her smiles again!

What neat uses for all of the "hooks'. I agree you deserve an award for a great attitude and gratitude. Keep up the good work!

Fun ideas, I just bought a bunch of hooks from ebay and am excited to get them and get them remounted!

I wish that I was as creative as you are. I love seeing all of your stuff that you have made or found.
