Pretty Maids All in a Row .......

Do you remember that nursery rhyme? I'll explain later.

 It sprung to my mind this week as I have been trying very hard to destash (I mean really hard, I may need counselling to get me over the loss!).  I have some lovely craft items that I bought in the great hope that I may make use of them but I haven't so they are here now waiting for a new home.

Another area that needed some attention was my jumbled mess of ribbons and trims, I am nearly embarassed to show you this photograph but here goes

But now they look like pretty maids all in a row.

I can't take the credit for this idea and I cant remember where I saw it but I'm gad I did.  I think they look so pretty now, like little ladies in party dresses - yep I have completely lost the plot - lol

Do you have any other handy or decorative storage tips?  I would love to hear them, I think I need to hear them.

Hi Stephanie,
There is a grumpy fairy who just loves to tangle ribbons and lace! You have made a good job of sorting them out.
Check out some of Karen Valentines blog party posts 'where women create' for some great storage ideas. find her at My Desert Cottage.
Best wishes, Angela.
