ooh - inspiration to get those vintage hooks up that I bought 6+ months ago at the thrift store that have been sitting in a pile on a shelf in my entry doing the opposite of what they're supposed to be doing. I've been thinking a lot about painting a board to attach them to, but now that I see you can simply screw them right into the wall, that seems like an easier solution. And maybe something I'll actually get around to doing.

Hello, sorry if I misled anyone with this post. Yes, it really was just two days. But someone, the person we rented from, really did live here full time, and it was his ability to live so simply that I was commending, not mine... The few apartments I've seen in Paris are all so tiny, and it's amazing how people can live in such little spaces. Just wanted to share that. Thanks for reading. Celeste

I know! How amazing is that star one?! And aren't the sock monkey faces in #2 super sweet? #1 is still my favorite though. There's something Scandinavian about it. I love the combination of colors against the off-white background. Think I might have to learn how to make granny squares this fall...

I recently learned you can buy old wooden wine boxes from the wine.com store on 4th street in Berkeley. Those might make cool drawers.

The one pictured & the man are so cute. I think it would work for a lakeside/beachside/country cabin. My husband's grandmother has one in upstate NY - though it's not functioning. Maybe her next project...

Thanks for all the nice comments everyone. Thekinni - the record player is a vintage Thorens from the 70s or 80s. We found it on eBay a few years ago. It's one of our treasures, and great for parties.
