10 Tie Rack, Take Two

>> Friday, February 26, 2010

It’s always fun, and a little perplexing, to discover what previous owners leave behind once they scoot on out of dodge. Although nothing compares to Kelly’s find over at Tearing Up Houses, we’ve had our share of interesting encounters.

Take for instance this belt/tie rack that was graciously left for us in the master closet. Circa 1968, it was on its way to the trash can while I was unpacking a Ziploc bag full of jewelry…

BUT after tightening a few screws and shifting slightly to the right (my side of the closet. Eric has other plans for his bling…kidding), I was pretty happy with my new jewelry station.

Thanks, Lisa!

Cara Beth, it was the best find ever! Much better than the old coke bottle buried in the back of the kitchen cabinets and the pink old lady curlers in the--where else?--pink bathroom.

AND if you haven't gone over to Tearing Up Houses to see what Kelly found, you must do that pronto! You won't believe what the previous owners left in her house...

Finding new uses for old things is one of my favorite things to do. I never would have thought of jewelry for this one but good choice!

Random question. What perfume is that with the gold top? I think my friend had the same one and I love it but cannot for the life of me remember the name. Thanks!

Hi, Allie M! Never fear. I love random questions!...and have been known to ask quite a few myself.

The perfume is Tous Touch. I hadn't heard of it before but the perfume lady suggested it to me and I love it!
