Lovely little tin, 99cents. One can never have too many tins, they hold buttons, beads and children treasures.

This gentleman is spacious and very sturdy. He was $10 at the thrift store.

Pinterest project- drawstring lego mats

July 6, 2012 § Leave a comment

Legos are one of my favorite toys, and our family spends hours playing with them. The lego mat is an easy way to keep them corralled. It is both storage and play surface and makes clean up easy. It prevent bruises from stepping on legos and keeps the baby from eating stray blocks. I have made two. The first one is made from vintage striped fabric and muslin and is about 54 inches wide, the width of the muslin. The drawstring is in a casing between the layers

This second one I made bigger, out of two thrifted sheets, and the drawcord just goes through grommets from back to front of the mat. If you are thinking of making one,  I like the bigger grommets of the second mat, but the internal casing for the cord of the first mat.

Colanders

These were thrifted at different times and cost about $6 each. I love enamel, I love color, and I love how repeating objects become art. They live on a bench in the playroom by the window and currently hold stamps and wooden cars. Someday maybe I’ll use them for planters like this one via apartment therapy.

Apothecary jar

A giant beautiful jar. On the right is my laundry soap crock, and this one matches perfectly. It is 2 gallons or larger and cost $10. Stray socks? A triple batch of laundry soap? Maybe I’ll store yarn in it.

A set of three lovely pyrex dishes. But I haven’t committed to a collection. I’m sure someone else is enjoying them!
