Holding Summer

Monday, August 26th, 2013

There is a slight chill in the air tonight…getting darker earlier….summer is fading.

It was a glorious one…rare in the Pacific Northwest to have so many days of consecutive sunshine…what a gift.

Been working like mad in the studio preparing for new fall designs…love working with the palette of Autumn. No pumpkins and scarecrows mind you, but how I love to collage with shades of rust and wheat and green….makes me want to put on a sweater. But as this wondrous summer fades, I didn’t want to lose that sense of tranquility that only the sun can bring. I was working on a set of magnets for myself…to remind me…to breathe, relax, flow and be at peace.

Liked them so much I thought I should share…so here they are….posted on my bulletin board and my never ending to-do lists…my zen magnets:)

Hope it helps!

Ok…in case you just tuned in, we are on an Amy Duncan, fourcornersdesign.blogspot.com, roll around here….too many fabulous ideas not to share.

I am always on the search for innovative display suggestions for our products for our stores. Amy Duncan’s book, The Salvage Studio, is a treasure trove of creative solutions for organization and display.

My first favorite idea was perfect for flour sack towels: the Wooden Crib Rack

Perfect for towels, papers, scarves.....

Amy gives you everything you need for both these projects, in perfect detail, in the book The Salvage Art Studio.

Next fabulous idea: the Tool Caddy Towel Rack

Ideal for towels on bottom and your favorite treasures on top

These are affordable, creative, out-of-the-ordinary ideas to make your displays inviting and unique.

Enjoy!
