I'm Back....

Happy Tuesday Everyone.

I hope you are all doing well. You probably notice I have been gone for 9 days. I had strep throat and an upper respiratory infection. I am feeling much better today.

Today I want to share a little spinning rack that I found at the thrift store. I think it use to be a spice rack but all the jars were missing. When I spun it at the store...it spun so smoothly, I was thinking maybe I could take it apart and use the turn table under something. When I got home I started to take it apart...well I didn't get very far. I was afraid if I opened up the bottom I wouldn't be able to get it to spin as nicely again.

So I tried every jar I had to fit in the cut outs, nothing worked, if only those cut outs weren't there. **DING** cover the cut outs. I cut up a cereal box and Decoupage some paper to it. I made three shelves with sides to help hold everything on it. I filled them with some of my favorite Ranger Products, which has come in handy since I took the Tim Holtz Creative Chemistry 101 class. (( I'll share that on another day.)) I added a little black ribbon around the edge and **walla** a spinning caddy for my desk.

I hope this inspires you to look around and put something old into use again.
Thanks for stopping by.



  1. Love that turntable!! That is so smart! Sure hope you are feeling better!!!

  2. Glad you're feeling better. I love the turntable. You did a great job. You are so creative.

  3. Actually, I'm old enough to know that was a rack to hold all your rubber stamps on when they had handles. Great re-purposing.
