New Tags

I've been busy in the studio creating fun products for the Spring...which I hope will be here soon! I don't know about you, but if it's going to be winter, I want a REAL winter, complete with lots of snow to play in! If there is going to be no snow, then I'm ready for spring!

With that in mind, I created a few new series of tags. They can be used for gift tags, labels, napkin rings, placecards, home decor....the options are endless! I'd love to hear your ideas! All are available on my etsy site:)

Set of 6 tags, each with a unique image of a nest and egg from 19th century natural history book:

Set of 6 tags, each with a unique image of a bird/nest and a Bible verse. These tags were created using antique prayer cards found in the attic of an old farmhouse.

Set of 6 tags, each with a unique image from a textbook of Spencerian Penmanship. Each has a banner to be filled with your greeting, a guest's name, a's up to you!

Have a happy day!

Great Ideas from Infusion NH

If you haven't visited the basement at From Out of the Woods in Goffstown, NH, what are you waiting for? It's filled with great ideas for repurposing lost treasures! And don't forget to stop in my space on the stairs on your way down:-)

(please excuse the quality of the photos...I think it's time for a new camera)

I turned an old drawer into a message center by inserting a pinboard in the back, a couple of hooks for keys and a small wooden box for holding mail.

Great idea for an old printer's cabinet--wine rack!

Here Donna combined some galvanized metal scraps and old tags to create a desk calendar.

Great way to organize receipts!

Old book pages used as covers for berry baskets. Why didn't I think of that?

Another calendar, this time made from a type drawer. Again, why didn't I think of that?

A few clever uses for old wire fencing:

I LOVE what Donna did with this old file cabinet. What a great idea for a small apartment or studio!

Last, but certainly not least, I want this!!!!!! Where does she find this stuff?

Have a happy day!
