Who’Da thunk it?
My buddy R and I were out antiquing when I spotted this little gem of a dusty, wire basket for a buck. That’s right: $1. One George Washington. Obviously the proprietor thought it was junk. How could I pass it up? I brought it home, stuck it in the garage, and waited for BH to ask me what on earth I brought home. He did and naturally I indignantly replied that yes, I most certainly did have plans for it. Hum, plans….
How nifty is this idea? I had a huge stash of gift bags and frankly, they’re a pain to keep corralled. I cleaned up the basket, laid 47 (yes, 47) bags inside, and laced it with ribbon. I hung my ginormous spool of ribbon from the bottom and voila! BH hung it in my craft room, and I feel much more organized! It’s easy to grab a bag from either the top opening or between the ribbon.
Try looking at old, discarded items in a new way. Let the right side of your brain take over and think outside the box, or outside the basket.
It’s a good thing.
