Hot glue on cement walls. You might have just changed my life.

I've tried to keep our world maps and ABC strips on the basement walls for a whole year. Tried about four different kinds of tape or sticky tack. Never once thought of hot glue...

I am drooling over your vintage patterns. The wall, too...but mostly the patterns! Simplicity 7530(?). Please tell me you plan on making one of those cute dresses this summer. :)

{ Seeing these reminds me of the BOXES of vintage patterns my mom *gave* away a few years ago! I still give her grief about that, because I'm her size and, therefore, they were all cut to fit me... ack. }


These are so darling . . .show us your other organized spots in the house! I need all the inspiration/tips I can get! :)
