yesterday i had the pleasure of thrift shopping with my good friend molly (along with our total of 4 kids--none over the age of 2.5-- in tow). molly always manages to bring good luck to any secondhand-shopping excursion. she also brings snacks. a nice girl, she is.
anyhow, lots was found yesterday. but what made me squeal with the most delight was stumbling (literally, as i tried to retrieve a non-cart-sitting lucy from the depths of the linens section) across these vintage wooden hangers. they're done up in a gorgeous array of pastel colors--perfect for springtime. it's a little springtime celebration for my closet--a welcome reward for all of the cleaning i've been up to.
the hangers were soaked in a bath of warm water and dr. bronner's soap, swished around a bit, then hung to dry in the sun. as molly said (with some distaste), "they look like they came from an old person's house." and that's exactly why i love them so!
