Hello! Hope everyone is having an awesome
I ran across an interesting article on Family
Heirlooms in one of my Country Living
The article was titled "12 Ideas For Family
With most of us hanging at home and cleaning
our areas of "clutter," maybe you have ran across
things that you are not ready to give up yet.
Here are some of the ideas:
1. Turn pins or brooches into napkin rings by
looping thread through the bar pin then tie
around your napkins.
2. Use old silver coasters as Placecards.
Paint part of the coaster with chalk paint.
Write names with erasable chalk markers.
3. Arrange old photos in a "Family Tree" in a
shadow box. Draw a simple tree shape on
watercolor paper, cut the paper to size of your
box frame. Paint the tree with watercolor paints.
Add mini clothespins with hot glue then clip pics
on the pins.
4. Display odds and ends in a Cloche.
They could be person specific too.
5. Turn baking tins into frames for recipes.
Print out old favorites, cut card stock to fit
your pan or tin. Glue to the inside of tin then
glue your recipes inside of the pan or tin.
Hang up using adhesive strips. These could
be pie pans or tart tins.
Another use for old faves is mod podging
recipes to the outside of a wooden recipe
box. A recipe could also be put inside the lid.
Make copies of the recipes unless they aren't
meaningful to you.
6. If you have a torn or stained quilt that you
can't part with, choose the "good" areas to
stretch over canvas for wall hangings.
So, as you are "going through things" maybe
some of these will work for you.
