Keeping things in the air, so to speak, keeps them from cluttering up my flat surfaces (so that all the other junk I have can clutter up my flat surfaces, instead, apparently). I'm a sucker for a good right hook -- or a suction-cup hook, or a metal hook. Just get that thing off the shelf and onto the wall.
I've made special containers to hang earrings and tools and more. A place at eye-level makes it easy to find those things. Here are a few more things I've suspended around the home.
|Suction cup hooks are great|
at holding toothpaste and a toothbrush.
|Another way to keep toiletries up in the air.|
|My sewing basket hangs from a hook in my ceiling above my desk.|
|If photographs of my favorite people can go on the wall,|
why not my favorite (and decrepit) old teddy bears?
|This lamp was meant for a table-top. Now it's a flying cow-pig-lamp. |
|I decided to have a living curtain for this window.|
The pot hangs on a hook; the vine grows over several
tension rods that I scavanged from other windows.
Having all these things on my walls and windows might explain why our home renovation (insulating all these walls) was such a big deal . . . more on that tomorrow.
