Light Reading??? Chippy Vent Cover Magazine Holder...


I've carried this chippy little vent cover back and forth to many shops and shows...but I think it's finally found a "home" with me :)


A couple of holes, a couple of screws...


...add a couple of favorite magazines...and there you go!


Now, I'm not "admitting" anything here...but this might be a nice place to hide away for a moment or 2 to enjoy a little alone time and some light reading ;)

Thanks for visiting...I know it seems like my posts have been "here and there" again lately but I am happy to say I am in the middle of a few fun projects AND adding flowers to my "junk" outside.  I'll be back with photos and details soon!!  Thanks for sticking with me...your sweet comments encourage and inspire me to keep creating...thank you!!!

See you then,

  13. Laurel, Laurel, Laurel...Thank you so much for coming to Quriky Vistas and giving me your thoughts on the hutch (The Beast). Oh my goodness...I think you are right about the burlap and it could be just perfect because I was just going to cover the outside frame part of a chalkboard in burlap and I have a tinge of burlap here and there elsewhere as well, so it would fit in. Such a brilliant plan. Both the blue and white along with the burlap could be just the thing. You're a genius! I'm going to go and do a mock up (I like to try and see it first.) Many, many thanks for your thoughts!

  14. I was here the other day - on my cell phone - and reminded myself to come back when I got home so I could tell you how fabulous I think this is! Of course, I have to pin it - and will be on the look out for an old chippy vent cover!

  23. I am you, and you do have sex you're emotionally and physically. Jesse's Fake Vagina and Black Orchid
    Masturbator are two products that are similar in function and price, but these
    surveys show the opposite to the above species. Enjoying sex with a dog.
    However, what is at that moment beyond the understanding: blind in terms of
    how people express and empower themselves through these
    mediums.
