i've promoted myself almost out of clothespins.

this is it.  out of hundreds and hundreds of clothespins
i had starting the year, i have these two listings left.

the ones above are neat because
the are almost 5 inches long.

and 36 of the most popular. 
round, pinch-style clothespins.

if you have been thinking of getting some,
now is the time while they are still available at

and these are now gone too.  out.  totally out.

how do you spell "spring'?

you can spell it with yellow "old school"
cardboard letters.

you can spell it with 1960's game cards.

or you can spell it with old stencil letters.

however you spell it, it is coming. 
i can feel it.

make your own banner to welcome spring.

instant banner and the big clean up.

one of the main purposes of opening an etsy shop 
was to destash my collections.  

and i have steadily been doing that for the last year and a half.
i need just a few more sales to hit number 2500.  

but now i am getting into serious stuff~
my studio, aka the basement.  

which until now has pretty much been left untouched.

but not anymore.  some of my most recent listings have
been from down there.

and here is another one.  some cool old brass cafe curtain rings.
waiting to be repurposed into instant banners.

available from anythinggoeshere.etsy.

getting organized.

i know that january is the traditional "get organized" month,
but i am a little slow this year.
i started reorganizing my studio.. aka "the basement"
a couple of days ago.  

it is going to be a long process.
i hope to be done by june.

my computer is going to be leaving the dining room
table and going to be set up down there
where all the "stuff" is.

after all my etsy shop is all about

maybe i'll share some work-in-progress posts
along the way.

what do you think?

if you are in the organizing mood
here is a vintage "destashed" wood office tray i found down there.

available at

notice the copy of pottery barn's workspaces in the box.  very inspiring!!!

yes, i have vintage clothespins.

but there are fewer of them.

since reminding you that i have vintage clothespins in  
my etsy shop, i have sold 306 of them.

but never fear,
i have more.  many, many, many more.

and if you have some spring projects needing some
they are available at

including some combo assortments like
the one above.

i have sent clothespins all over the world.

other people love them as much as i do.

roll 'em.

i am working fast to list all the fun things

that i got last thursday at a fun, local sale.

everything was older, and in very nice condition.

a winning combination in my book.

these great 1970's movie film cans and reels
would make a wonderful
magnetic "memo board."
