Bath Time

Actually, it's more like bed time, so this post will be pretty short, sweet, and to the point.  Today was work day / janitor day at the Thrift Shop, then a couple painting projects for clients, housecleaning, and cooking for our neighborhood dinner share.  I'm pretty beat (and I'm getting old), so now it's bedtime and it's not even 10:00.

Thought I would share with you a really quick project I did in a matter of minutes over the past weekend. 
I had picked 2 of these doors (I think they were old cabinet doors) up a while back at a garage sale and didn't really know what I was going to do with them.  They were already white and glazed in the detailed area...and even better, they were 50 cents each, so I knew I would put them to good use at some point.

 I was recently shopping at a local Flea Market where my friend, Beverlee, has a booth and she had the cutest hooks in her booth for sale at very reasonable prices.  Some birds, owls, and these "hot bath" hooks.  I snatched up a variety, but ended up with two of these.  Once I got home, I realized they would be perfect on the doors turned boards that I had picked up previously.
 All I did was put a saw-tooth hanger on the back.  I picked up this 6-pack of hangers at Wal-Mart for .98 cents.  Unfortunately these little jewels are approximately $3.50 at Ace and Lowe's for the same size/style.  So, Wal-Mart wins!  By the way, I love Wal-Mart.  I know there are lots of people that hate it, but it has always been my go-to store for one-stop shopping.  Sorry peeps, I'm just not a Target fan.  Not to mention there wasn't a Target in my little bitty neck of the woods growing up, so I never got used to it.  Heck, we only got a Wal-Mart a few years back.  Ok, so I may have grown up in the sticks in Oklahoma.  (And I love it there!)
 The hooks already had 2 holes for screws on each side, so I just put two rusty looking screws straight in.  Here it is...must have took all of 5 minutes to complete.  Sorry the pictures are dark.  The sun was already set when I took these.

 Oh, and a few of you mentioned that you wanted a rake hanger (aprons, purses, coats, etc.).  Here is one that I just finished that's up for sale.  Let me know if you want more info on it.

Very good blog! Do you have any tips and hints for aspiring writers?
I'm planning to start my own blog soon but I'm a little lost on everything.

Would you recommend starting with a free platform like Wordpress or go for a
paid option? There are so many choices out there that I'm completely overwhelmed .. Any ideas? Many thanks!
