“Ensconced” Organization for Gardening Tools

“Ensconced” Organization for Gardening Tools

A couple of years ago, I made a simple repurposed clip board for our gardening/work gloves– both of us had a bad habit of flinging them off in the garage and struggling to find them the next time we needed to wear them! And let me tell you- having the clip board has been a life (and glove) saver! So, when I found these outdated bucket sconces at a thrift store, I decided make something similar for my gardening hand tools.Read more ›

Sugar & Spice & Organization

Sugar & Spice & Organization

I had seen this idea on Pinterest not too long ago because I thought it was a fantastic way to organize the itty-bits in my Craft Room. Over the years, I have collected and gathered any number of small “bits”… buttons, beads, jewelry findings, bells, pom poms…you get the picture. So I had added “Spice Rack” to my never-ending list of things to hunt for in thrift stores. This post contains affiliate links for your crafting convenience.Read more ›
