Friday Favorites & Finds ($2 Decorative Clothespins)

I needed to stop by Michaels for a frame yesterday, and I can't ever go in that store without strolling down the bargain bin isle.  Well, it always pays off (actually I end up paying).  Look what I found for $2!  I wish I could take credit for making them (I'm sure going to try and recreate a few of my own), but I can't.  I bought them exactly as you see them.


I not only love the painted designs and little jewels, but what really caught my eye was the size.  They're the same height as a regular clothespin (just under 3"), but they're twice as wide (making them 3/4").  The larger width gives them great stability when standing up. 


I use a lot of clothespins and quotes on my chicken wire memory boards, and I'm sure you could use these larger ones on a memory board.  But, I've been needing something to put on my nightstand to clip a daily quote to.  These little (actually big) guys are perfect for the job!  I can clip my quote right to the clothespin and it stands up with no problem. 


Once again, the bargain bins at Michaels pull through for me.  They did have other colors (pinks and reds) and as I sit here looking at them, I convinced I need the other sets as well.  :)  

Thanks so much for stopping by!  I hope you found a little something worth your time.  Happy Memorial Day weekend! Summer is here!
