Once I made my lanyards, I did not have any place to hang them. I didn't think the door knob to my closet would work too well (especially since I already have a purse or 2 hanging on it but that is another post!)
So, I started thinking....always a dangerous thing for me to do!
I remembered seeing this idea in blog land and on Pinterest and I thought I could make that happen!
So, I gathered my tape measure, my rake, and a hanger.
A few minutes of my time and there you go - a wonderful way to hang my lanyards and my few necklaces.
(I don't own a lot of necklaces. I have one that I wear all the time and that's about it. Plus, I am always tearing the ones I have apart to use in craft projects!)
You know, my walls look white in these pictures, it is really a soft yellow. Go figure.
The rake belonged to my daddy. It's one of the few things that I have of his and it always brings a smile to my face. He had a love for farming and gardening. Since he has been gone since 1991, I didn't think he would mind me hanging this up in my home.
(I can hear him and Mama laughing about it in Heaven right now!
I can just hear him say, "That girl!")
The rake was already off the handle....honest!!!
(Disclaimer: no garden rakes were injured during this task.)
I didn't want to add anything to it or paint it because I like it just as it is...old and worn.
It's a good thing!
