Yep. Have those too.
One of my favs is an apron. Really? Absolutely.
About 10 years ago, my mom made me a Christmas apron. I loved it! So it was hung carefully in the guest room closet.
The problem was I always forgot to get it out at Christmas time. So it hung there and hung there.
In a search for yet another Christmas gift that I had stashed SOMEWHERE and couldn’t remember where I had stashed it, I found my apron.
But where to put it in a place that wouldn’t render it forgotten. Again.
Nope. Not the kitchen drawers. And the broom closet was full.
How about the back of a chair? No, that didn’t look right. And the towel rack on the end of the island was hidden. You wouldn’t see it at all there.
Finally, I just tied it around the broom closet pull and turned around to stir the soup.
And that was IT! That was the perfect place for my apron. It found a home. If it’s not hanging there soon enough, a grand will ask about it. They, like me, are detail people
I have created 11 monsters!!
The moral of the story is…check out the closets for possible Christmas decorations. See what the garage may offer. Inspect Grandma’s cedar chest….BB’s mom had a huge stash of Christmas tablecloths.
Heck, I’ve even used my 8″ Madam Alexander dolls as ornaments! Small tree + little dolls=perfection! Using old stuff in new ways…my motto!
