We moved closer to the In-laws and I developed a hang up for a pile of old fence boards that have sat on their side yard for ever.

I finally got brave and asked if I could have some and then My Big Hang Up Started.

Okay it started with this…

Rack6 (2)

I picked up this cool piece of wood and then made this necklace holder from it over a year ago

I make art from old leather belts, so I have a lot of belt buckles hanging around.

And then I made this out of the other half of the wood.  Rack4 (2).jpg

I realized I like making hanging racks out of interesting and unusual bits and pieces.  Although hard to tell between my cool old kitchen gadgets, the rack is made from old metal water facet knobs and big butterfly screws.

So once I had the fence boards…The Hand Ups Began!  I started to dig around in my widgets, gadgets, screws, hooks and thingies.

I went first to my mass amount of belt buckles and made a couple of my mini necklace holders.

Rack7

I have been noticing mermaids a lot lately because my older sister who was diagnosed with Stage IV cancer last year loves them.   So, I have mermaids around and made this beachy themed key and coat rack.

I dug deep and found these huge screw things with a nuclear-ish symbol on the ends.  I loved them and finally found a project for them!  They would make great “hooks” for a coat/jewelry rack!

Rack3

I had more wood but was running out of ideas, so one day I really dug through my stuff and I did not even know I had these little red hooks.  I love the bright color against the awesome worn wood grain.

This one makes a Great Industrial Chic Necklace holder!

I ventured out from just making racks, I made some signs too.

Like Grandpa David who owns the above barn and silo.  There is a dilapidated over 100 year old house that his grand father lived in nearby that I would love to explore.  He welcomed me back and I think I will take him up on that.  

Lovely man. The photo below is also from his property.

The door  shut on its own as soon as I walked up to it.

No wind. I kid you not!

From Old GA Buildings

The Door was Wide Open and it Slowly Closed as I Walked Towards it.

As I Stopped to take Photos, the Door Stopped Closing.

Oh, Yes…That Happened!

Any way, Back to the Bright and Cheery.
