Crib Spring Memo Board


I was so excited when I went to visit one of my favorite blogs last night  Funky Junk Interiors.  Donna is having an awesome contest.  Copy Me Challenge.  With the fabulous Marion of Miss Mustard Seed picking the final winner!  Oh man two of the best style gurus out there.  Oh and I was so happy to see them Both on the same page(10) of the January issue of Romantic Homes.

Well I am always trying to “copy” Donna she has the most amazing style.  Anyhoo back in June, we had this spring from an old crib that was literally headed to the dump.  You can read about it’s transformation here.




However it was just not quite right.  Then a few weeks later I found this little gem at an estate sale for……..25 cents!!!!!


It was the second day of the sale and my second day going to it.  I couldn’t believe that I missed it the first time around and that everyone else had too!!!!

I also added some scrabble tiles to the front of the holder.  You will notice my eraser missing from the middle cup.  I believe a blonde sprite may have walked off with it!  Oh well I am sure it will turn up soon.  See the chalk holder… is a vintage Grand Union MUSTARD tin.  Wink Wink Winking smile.

I keep some supplies in the first aid kit.  The vintage band-aid tin holds band-aids.  New ones Smile.

Well here is how she looks now.
