The theme of today's "Tuesday Display Chain" hosted by Misi of Gable House Musings, is "Make-Do."
There is a saying: "Use it up....wear it it out...make it do or do without."
In modern times we often have the advantage of buying something we need to accomplish a specific task.
In times past people didn't have a store around the corner or perhaps the money to buy new things.
People would re-use, repurpose and mend the things they had.
An apple butter paddle repurposed as a scrubber to clean the kettle.
The patch was copied from an old feedbag and the drawstring is a piece of cotton cording.
I finally decided that it would make a fine towel holder in my kitchen.
Aunt Polly's Attic.
The make-do is attached to a wooden base and stuffed with scraps. I added my collection of antique picture pins.
I wanted something unique to hold my quilts and coverlets. The instant I saw the wooden tools, I knew I had found my brackets!
I hope you enjoyed today's theme! Check out all the fantastic displays at:
