I like to collect ephemeral items, but often they get buried in a closet or in my hope chest. So the other day I decided to make a way to display my memories without the aid of a picture frame.First I used copper wire and upholstery tacks to make miniture clothes lines between two doors frames. Then I designed clothespins with various odds & ends...like that broken periwinkle jeweled bracelet that I couldn't fix or an old Alice & Wonderland flower pin that I was never bold enough to wear. Here are a few of my results.

Here is the end table that I found for $2 last summer. I obtained the antique handle from an ornate buffet that my mom has been planning to discard...of course I only found it after several trips to various hardware stores and countless hours of web search...Also this infamous Desert Blue colour instigated a need for "Clean up in aisle 5!" at Michaels.
Another project that I have been working on can be seen above the little table. I'm working on an album cover. It's still in the early stages, but hopefully I will have something to pass out to family & friends soon. Lord willing :)
