Before & After

           Voila!                                                      Gag

 My Cath Kidston address book, Farm Chicks tape measure, and array of happy pens found a sweet nesting spot for sure.

 This one begged for my seed packets.
(maybe now I will remember to seed them in the right and proper time)
Hidden away behind the pretty packages are individually wrapped moist towelettes. They come in incredibly handy at many odd times, but I didn't want their sterile wrappings peeping out of the pretty basket. Now they will be quick to grab on our way out the door to roast s'mores over the fire pit, yet blissfully invisible at all other times. 

 I happened to be cleaning out the dining room linen cupboard the same day I hung this organizer on the wall. The red be-sequenced napkin rings were too sparkly to be stuffed in a dark cabinet all the time. 

 Peeling off the dollar price sticker, a good scrubbing, and a dousing of pink spray paint certainly did the trick for this hanging organizer. I had originally bought it for the craft room, but realized it made more sense down here on the office side of my kitchen. I still may line the baskets with fabric in the future, but for now, it is finito. 

Happy day to you, dear friends!

P.S. Wishing a very Happy Birthday to my dear Daddy-O. I love you!
