Hello Fellow Bloggers,
Look at what I plucked out of my dusty attic
the other day. In case you were
wondering - it is an ugly green spice rack.
The glass bottles broke eons ago - dont know why I liked it
nor do I know why I kept it.
Dont you agree that its ugly!!!
There is a future for this spice rack.
It can be painted although I will not do that
because the color suits my purpose.
Have you got one of them sitting in your attic??
If not
then just maybe it is sitting on your kitchen counter.
Here is a front view and a side view of the thing.

Too Late - cannot twiddle my thumbs any longer!

HELLO and Welcome to my blog!!
So, now I have gone and done it - I have taken a giant step forward in the world of the blogs. Henceforth I shall be known to others and to myself as a fellow blogger. My daughter has already taken the liberty upon herself and given to me a new name - "Hopblogger."
Hopblogger has hopes of finding new ideas to put on my blog. Things to remake, remix and/or to reuse, some ideas that have been buzzing in my head lately and perhaps in yours.
I welcome any ideas that anyone would like to share to this blog. Being thrifty in todays economy is what its all about. So, lets all help each other out.
Ladies, I must say that in the 3 weeks that I have blogged, I have came across some beautiful handcrafted items. There is so much talent in the country of Blogland. I hope that all of the ideas on this blog keep you inspired.
Keep crafting, fellow bloggers - and perhaps between all of us we can find new ideas for your crafts!
Chat Bak, Hopblogger
