On Fourth of July weekend our town hosts a big Main Street tag sale. Yesterday, I found something I thought would be perfect for creating more organization in my studio. When I asked the price, they laughed at me – there was apparently a bet going that it would never sell. I bought it for a $1 and spent the afternoon cleaning out the tinkering of its previous owner. That got me to thinking about the old adage …
One man’s trash is another man’s treasure.
So true. The real trick is in finding the right person for the right trash! Cleaning out the bolts and screws, carefully saving them in a jar for my tinkering projects, I got to wondering what the previous owner was fixing that required 1,000′s of tiny cotter pins??
One dollar and an afternoon of painting later – I am so happy to have this new project box in my sewing space!
Everytime I look up from my machine I feel giddy looking at my organized stitchy tinkery stuff.
