Yesterday I went out to investigate some stores in a part of the city that I usually don't shop.....the weather was great and I felt like I needed a change of scenery. I can't say I came home with a lot of finds but it was a fun day of shopping.
One of the things I purchased was a pair of 1940's wire glove dryers.
Each glove dryer had a hole in the bottom.
When I investigated on-line, I discovered the glove dryers originally had little hangers attached through those holes. Makes perfect sense since these hand shaped dryers were used to air dry fashion gloves that were popular in the 1940's.
I don't have any gloves that I need to dry but I do have some rings and bracelets that are always in need of a jewelry stand.
The hole that once held the little hanger was perfect as a means of securing the wire hand form onto a piece of scrap wood.
Couldn't be any easier!
On another note......I haven't forgotten about my "What's in My Basement" quest, I just got a little sidetracked.
I went down to the basement today and came back upstairs with this old office chair.
It has a great shape and cool wheels on the bottom of the legs but that seat has got to go!
It looks to me like it's contact paper. It will be interesting to see what I find underneath it! I'll be working on this chair this week and show you the finished project next Sunday.
Just a couple more quick pictures.
Isn't this the cutest little bird?
I have some fallen tree branches in an urn in my living room that displayed my vintage Christmas ornaments this year. I left the branches in the urn after Christmas and they have been bare until I found these little clip on birds at a local decor store last week.
They look pretty realistic.....good think I don't have a cat!
Have a great week.
