Cookin Clothespins! Wanna come for dinner?


I don't cook alot...and given the picture that might be a good thing!!  Because here I'm fixin' up a good pot of clothespin soup....actually..they're soaking in tea.... Any one wanna come over for dinner???

This weekend my Son, Alex gets married.  I'm not sure how I feel about that...I mean I am HAPPY and all...just a little disillusioned at the fact that MY SON is getting MARRIED...because yesterday he was a baby.....Am I really that OLD?  (Dana would say YES!) okay..I've digressed....

I wanted to make a gift, but wasn't quite sure exactly what to make them...then I remembered Beth has a pinterest board so I went on the hunt.  I found a picture of an old frame turned into a picture board...

A couple of weeks ago we salvaged several barn panels, old windows and 3 window frames from an old barn a couple of counties away.  Hidden in a mound of dirt were three of these....



Caked in mud...actually embedded into the dirt, full of spiderwebs...but when my eyes saw them I fell in love...Dana? ...um not so much...but he was a good sport.  He only rolled his eyes in the back of his head briefly.  Reluctantly he put them into Red Sexy and I brought them home...

So when I saw the pinterest board, I rushed into the back of the studio and dug out the frame....
I scrubbed it, washed it, sanded it, paste waxed it and tea stained the clothespins above to give them a vintage look...added some quilt squares and embellished them with some bits and pieces of my mom's broken jewelry....


and here it is! I LOVE IT!!! SHE LOVED IT!! ALEX LOVED IT!
and I made one for me too!!
