A Long Time Coming

Well, I wasnt' sure I was ever going to come back and blog again. I had started another blog very, very briefly, but realized that this is where my heart is. I think I was getting frustrated about blogging and not feeling it like I should.
Now, I realize that this blogs for you. I am living each day with renewed reckless courage and trying new things all the time. I love that I've changed jobs. Creating new spaces in my home and continue to reuse, renew and repurpose discarded things.
I recently moved my bedroom. I love my bedroom, but now my walk-in closet which holds my vanity and jewlery is in the other room. So I needed to come up with an idea to house my collection of pins, which I love to wear on my coat or blazer. I had a left over piece of upholstery strapping and decided to make it into something useful for my pin collection.
I stapled a piece to the inside of my armoire door and voila!.. a pin holder for my collection. This was easy and the pins are within reach everytime I open the door. I love something that is this easy to do and takes no time at all.

Good to be back.. Tracey
