I hope all of you had a lovely Easter. We had a quiet weekend and enjoyed the sunshine.
During a walk about two weeks ago, we picked up a bunch of wooden clothes hangers at the curbside. The trash collectors must have overlooked them the other day. Certainly good for me :-). We took them home and I gave them a shower. Then I painted the hangers white, sanded a bit paint off here and there and stamped some text and patterns on.
I use the ones with a bar to hold some wider laces. For now the job of the other ones is to just look nice :-). Maybe I find some pretty vintage clothes one day for them to present.
When I made guacamole last week, I remembered that Barbara over at Vintage Bunty had posted about dyeing with avocado skins. So instead of throwing the skins away, I looked again at her POST and followed her description. This is how my laces turned out. Some came out a little lighter than others but all have a lovely shade of pink with a beige undertone.
I’m very happy with the results and will dye another batch when I make an avocado dish next time. I also love that no chemicals are necessary. Thank you, Barbara for posting about it!
Have a lovely week!
