Sometimes if you stare at your clutter long enough, innovation happens.
I scored this old cottage window frame at the dump when we were up north one weekend.
(Oh gosh, has that been two years ago already? I think it has.)
It's been in our garage since then, propped up between the recycling bins and our bicycles.
Those black metal clips were left over from a work project.
(Oh gosh, has that been nine years ago already? I think it has.)
They've moved with us from place to place, hoping one day to be useful for something.
- picked out some of my favorite papers and taped to the back of the frame
- pounded big-headed nails into the window frame and hung the clips from the nails
- placed in a handy spot, hanging on my studio wall
- putzed around looking for cute stuff to clip in there so I could take the picture
A free message board! Almost like I planned it that way.
