i know i’m not the first person ever to do this, but it is darn cute so i thought i’d share.
do you have a bunch of christmas cards sitting in a pile? i did until a few days ago. we got back from seattle and opened the majority of said cards, and i put them in a pile with the rest of the mail.
i LOVE getting christmas letters and cards. when i was a young girl i would sit and read every single christmas letter that my parents got. i didn’t know half the people, but i read them anyway. i actually think my first sure sign of adulthood was when i received my first christmas letter addressed to me at my own house.
and while i cherish these letters, they still end up sitting in a pile for a long time. and as my fridge is rather crowded, i can’t put them there either.
SO, staple gun in hand, and armed with gagillion feet of gray industrial thread, i fashioned for myself a “picturesline” [as opposed to a clothesline] in my kitchen. i used the same clothespins that i hang my clothes with in the summer, so this little project was completely free, just the way i like it.
plus, this project gives me:
a lovely way to show off my friends
a classy look
a little bit more happiness and love in my kitchen
