What to do with a Harvest of clothes pins
If you're like me many things inspire you to be creative. Recently I was doing some basement exploring looking for inspiration. I came across a harvest of vintage wooden clothes pins. These clothes pins were my Nana's(Grandma's) and Busha's(Great Grandma's) they were used and really show their wonderful age. I don't hang many clothes and when I do I don't use clothes pins. After all we have dryers now. So this got me thinking what could I make with these clothes pins. I remember I once had a clothes pin doll. I'm not sure where she is now, I suppose she's hiding out in the basement.
So that brings me to a childhood memory of funny faced fruit refrigerator magnets. Do you remember these I'm not sure if they were from the 50's or earlier. I just remember loving them and their quirkiness. I remember a pear and a watermelon and apple guy. I'm not sure where they are perhaps they are playing with the clothes pin doll.
I decided I would take that inspiration & make some ornaments. So I've made a few batches of Halloween and Harvest Creepling Ornies. Most of the Halloween ones have sold which I'm thrilled about! I know it's only Spring but I'm having fun with Fall right now. Where do you get your inspiration from?
