Hangin' Around

Ahh, springtime. A time of open windows, line-dried linens, and re-organization projects. It's that last one that's been keeping me happily busy in the studio, creating a few new Pretty Hooks to place upon the shop's virtual shelves. I know I've mentioned it before, but it bears repeating: I love organzing things, and I love coming up with pretty ways of organizing said things. That's how the Pretty Hook was born ;)
Once it had been decided that some new Pretty Hooks were in order, supplies were quickly gathered. There were plenty of pretty papers and paints and my favorite part, the power tools, but one crucial ingredient was looking seriously low in numbers. Seems my stash of vintage hooks and knobs had dwindled while I wasn't looking. So I "hmmed" and "ummed" for a bit, and waited for a solution to strike. The solution presented itself in the form of little wooden knobs, the sort of which you always seem to have laying about in junk drawers and supply bins in the basement. Yes yes, little wooden knobs! They could be painted to match the wooden part of the Pretty Hooks! Little wooden knobs indeed would do very nicely.

I must say, I'm rather pleased with the way the little wooden knobs turned out. They're like a softer version of their brass knob cousins...a bit more rustic, more charming. I think I'll make some more!
Have a clever day, lovelies!

Okay. So here's what I'm thinking.... you need to come to the single-wide with your GORGEOUS hooks and organize me. Seriously - I'll pay in good junk. Oh, and bring some jewels too.

;-D LOVE them!

Oh my, I love this idea! I've been desperately needing a pretty yet practical way to hang necklaces, aprons, etc. but I just haven't found anything that I like. I'm going to have to make some of these, too!

Really pretty! And such a great idea! I came up with a great solution for storing earrings and bracelets:
