10 Minute Decorating

The Nesting Place is having a 10 minute decorating party. This our contribution.


Without a mudroom I try to use the back porch for my mudroom. One day last summer I was sweeping out the porch and and remembered I had purchased a bike basket at a garage sale to use as a magazine rack in the backroom, but had failed to ever put it up. So I grabbed a hammer and nails and pounded it up next to my farmhouse bench.

I also added a hook I had laying around and hung up a wicker bike basket from ribbon. The basket holds my items that must go with me in the morning. I use the clothes pin to hold mail that must go to the post office. Today it is holding libary books that need to be retured. That's my ten minute decorating.

I like it a lot. I have been wanting a place to put "tomorrow's stuff" Great idea just to plunk it all in a basket. Don't know why that didn't occur to me. Kelly
