Just Playin’ Around


That is what I have been doing!

Just playing around in my craft room.

I was looking through some decorating books and I saw an article on gluing wooden clothes pins to a board and making a type of peg rack.

Well, it was midnight last night and I quite frankly didn't have any boards just sitting around.

So I thought…

What if I attach them to the side of my wooden shelf??

I had some little tiny clothes pins too, so I decided to attach them to the edge of my bulletin board.

Hummm… I think it still needs a few more.A Primitive Place ~Tammy

I also have been noticing on Etsy and blogland these most adorable rag or paper wreaths.

Still need to try a paper one, but I did make this rag wreath late last night.

I’m not exactly sure what I'm going to do with it.

But I do love the way it turned out!

For now I have it inspiring me in my craft room.

Nobody has late night fun like you do Tam....and such fun things you have to show for it! Love the clothespin idea....and, of course, your old Valentine's collection....I know they do go so well with my colonial/prim decor that I love so, but I just can't resist them and have a pretty healthy stash myself! Happy Sunday...craft on!! Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin

Love the wreath! You could make a different for each month to correlate with seasons and holidays!
And I'm going to steal the clothepin thing for my own sewing room, I need a way to hang up little pictures of projects and inspiration.
Thank you for sharing and enjoy the rest of the weekend,

I'm not the only one to start projects in the late night hours :o) Sometimes that's when the creativity comes when the house is quiet & dark. Your pins & wreath look great girl, very creative!! ~Kriss~

How cute is that wreath and your cards on the clothes pins are sweet! Love the idea of where you placed them too!
I used to have several of those wrag wreaths that I had made myself years ago. They are fun huh!
