Yesterday’s outstanding Pumpkin Fest in downtown Turners Falls presented an excellent excuse to go to Loot, a place that speaks my language. If you haven’t been to Loot yet, for the love of god, go.

Not that I’m complaining. And I’ve come up with lots of great ways to use them.
salvaged table leg
rubber stamp carousel (also from Loot!)

And now that I’ve scored all this gorgeous barn board, I have several more tricks up my sleeve.
But there is beauty in simplicity, and putting test tubes into a vintage test tube rack acquired from Loot, and using it as a bud vase, is both simple and beautiful.
