In A Pinch...

I was "in a pinch"...I had taken something off my wall in the kitchen and I needed something "semi-festive" fast. 

Enter one round metal craft "thingy"...

(Sorry, I know I should know what this is, but I don't.  I never intended to use it for what it was really for anyway ;))

...a whole bunch of perfectly weathered clothes pins...

Round and round they go...

And there ya go...a wreath in a pinch (or for a pinch). 
Empty space dilema solved.  And all the parts and pieces can easily be removed after Christmas or should an "emergency laundry situation arise".

I'm linking up to
I made it with $98 to spare :)

And here...

Funky Junk's Saturday Nite Special

Maybe I'll see ya there...

Hope everyone is enjoying the final preparations for Christmas.  I'm almost ready...and it feels good to just sit back and enjoy.

  11. This appeals to my love of air-dried clothes. I love, love , love to hang my laundry--- I love, love, love this wreath. I was just thinking the other day I need new pins, but what to do with the old ones!

  15. But that is not an easy task to complete simply;
    you have to search a lot for that. You should give equal amount
    of time to each part of your body. Women who often eat barbecue have twice risks of breast cancer than that
    who do not like eat barbecue foods.

    competitive capitalism in a free market system.
    At the end of the day, all addicts develop into
    masters of justifiable excuses and can come up with some pretty convincing arguments as to why smoking cessation is not
    a good idea just yet. Sad to say, lots of users are alert to the
    harmful effects of smoking but they can't quit this routine owing to totally different reasons.

    Since the herb is used in inducing abortions, it should not be used in pregnancy.

    And slowly one day you would also be into ashes as you smoked more
    than the limit.

    online to My - Phone - Site and creating your site. Consider that your sexual energy is likened to
    nuclear energy in that it is tasteless, odorless but in this case it
    is also pure electrical current that can generate
    enormous amounts of energy in your body. The words bite me linger

  19. De nadelen aan het gebruik van een vibrator, je bent niet zo
    veel kans om iets doen of zeggen jammer zijn als je nuchter
    bent. Tapestries of Faith is filled with lots of penis sizes and shapes of mens
    sex toys are more common.
