Clara remembered the old ladder we bought at least 7 years ago in a junk sale and that we had never used (scary, I know...). The ladder was still there, in a corner of the garage just waiting... Then, finally happened... the old ladder got a makeover...The magic white paint did what it does best: turned drab into fab, satin ribbon was criss-crossed adding a little glam....
transforming our junk sale treasure in a space-saver card display....
We have to admit that the ladder was for sale for about 6 hours until we realized how much we loved it and how many more cards and tags we are selling out of it. Now the old ladder has a "Sorry, not for sale at this time" sign, after all, she was very faithful and waited a long time for us, we can't just sell it!!!
So Ladies, keep your eyes open for those old ladders that are just not safe anymore to be climbed. You can use it to display your Christmas Cards ........
and after the Holidays, your beautiful linen collection!

From wishes that last just a few minutes to those wonderful, dreammy wishes that we carry around all our lives....Personal wishes and world-wide wishes...Pink, soft, glittery wishes...are the inspiration for our:
"I was going to save the world today, but something....small and cute caught my eye! project.
We bought these tiny jars at Michael's for less than $1.00 each. If yours come with the metal lid closure, just remove it....
We filled the jar with a fluffed cotton ball. We stamped a Raffle ticket (sold at WaltMart or Party Supplies Stores for $1.00 a roll of 100....yes! 100 "wishes"...) with the word WISH. (printing or writing it's also fine!)
We then dipped the sides of our Wish Ticket on glitter for some sparkling fun and once dried, we placed it inside the jar, between the glass and the cotton.
Using a glue gun, we glued the lid to the jar.
We decorated the top using crepe paper (velvet or lace are also great choices) and a silver star. Some trim around the neck (or ribbon) completed the fab look!
