After coming across a collection of gorgeous photos of my Grandparents from the 40s , I instantly knew I had to display them in a way I could actually see (photo albums so rarely get looked at in my house).
I also wanted to avoid damaging the photos with puncture marks or the like.
So, voilà, another 1 minute project was born.
Clothespins. I used mini ones here as they were more to scale to my vintage photos.
Twine, string, ribbon, or whatever is handy at the moment.
I used hemp for this banner, leftover from my hemp necklace making days… remember those??
I ended up using a mix of both old and new- for color and sentimental value 🙂
All together now.
Simply arrange your photos in the order you’d like them to hang, as looks most pleasing.
Fasten the photo to the string with your clothespin.
This is a photo of my Grandma, Stella. I love how carefree and full of life she looks here; I can almost imagine that I’m right there with her that summer, on the lake with her betrothed.
Now hang, and you’re done!
What better way to put your extensive shot glass collection to use, while justifying that funny mojitos-with-breakfast habit you picked up in college, than with this herbal “arrangement.” I place arrangement in quotes here as it unduly gives too much credit to the arranger… but you get the idea.
Step 1: pluck your fresh herbs of choice- given the aforementioned mojito habit, I’ve chosen mint here.
Step 2: dust off your until-now-forgotten double shot glass (who actually measures liquor drinks out?) and fill with water
Ste 3: place herbs in shot glass, or several, on the center of your table, at a place setting, windowsill, or next to the stove for easy cooking access.
Combining boozy memories and soon to be muddled new ones– the perfect Sunday project in my book.
