So it's not rocket science............

So spring break is officially over but my dd is still at home......pneumonia....ongoing. I think she may be ready to go back to school tomorrow, but today was playing Old Maid, Crazy Eights, etc.  
Finally I looked at my newest Somerset Life, talking about clothes hangers, huh? Something I can relate to......I have a bag of wooden clothes hangers waiting for a new life.
And my dd just happened to need new hangers, graduating from the little kid hanger. So I went into my studio and decided to use some things I already had, vintage seam binding, old wooden hangers, etc.
No more irritation with trying to hang her clothes up on too small hangers meant for toddlers.
After all, she's 9 yo now, ready for the full size hanger.
So on this overly stormy, windy, rainy day I kept busy making something very simple and feel good about it......is it earth shattering?
Well,,,,,,,,,,,,NO! But we had fun...... hope you're having fun too!

I've got a stash of these vintage hangers..all painted 3 different hues of pink...they came from the estate of a lady in her 90's.

I love them wrapped in the old binding...very cute!
