Clothes Pins, The Beginning

The minute I found this enormous old bag of vintage clothespins at a yard sale I knew our adventure was officially underway. I didn’t know what we’d do with them, but I knew we needed them. They are the cool old-fashioned kind, wrapped in wire and with beautiful rounded heads. I imagined the woman who owned the house sewing the bag that still held the clothespins the day I purchased them ($1!).

Laurie took one look at them and knew immediately they should be flipped on their beautiful heads to serve as a mail holder. Here she is, wielding power tools, creating her vision.
And here it is, a naked mail holder, soon to be decoupaged and stamped to perfection!
