~ What I Love ~

I recently bought the book The Find and I came across one particular page. The idea is fantastic and quite simple. Old metal number, neat old plates (or new), a great color napkin, and the greatest part-an old ledger page cut in the shape of a fancy place mat. Imagine what other place settings one could create with other found objects. Time has really flown since my last Blog. Hopefully now with the chill in the air I will get rejuvenated and write more often. Now is the time to tackle the full garage and storage. Ahhhhh.... The freedom of no clutter....


  1. I have GOT to get this book!! I just saw another mention of it on another blog! This is so beautiful!!! Love the number!

  2. What a pretty idea. I love it.

  3. what a great display! love it!! I think I need to be picking up that book.....


  4. I need to clear out my garage, too but I'm afraid I'd never get to the "no clutter" stage with out a big garbage truck backed into my drive!! Good luck!

  5. So cool! You all think of things I'd never ... ever come up with. Love it.

    Have a warm wonderful week. TTFN ~ Marydon

  6. That's what I need to do...declutter...especially my mind!

  7. What a cute idea! I have been saying the same thing, "As soon as it cools off I am tackling the garage" but we are having record heat in Florida (oh darn), LOL, but as soon as it does I will be busy(;

  8. Such a fun idea...the possibilites are quite endless! Thanks for sharing!

  9. I need to get this book... I need to get some money to get this book.
    I can't cut paper though, I am left handed... scissors aren't for me.

  10. Thanks for such a great it! Will have to check out the book!

  11. Ohhh that is just a beautiful place setting !
    I am glad to hear that I am not the only one who needs to tackle the garage ~ We have got to do it before it gets too cold ~
    Thank you for sharing such a pretty book ~

  12. How lovely. I am a sucker for repurposing like this. I will have to locate that book.

    I'm catching up with postings after spending three days in bed with a nasty cold that turned to asthma issues. Just getting back up to my old self and have missed all of my blogging friends. Hope to be caught soon and back to posting on my own blog. Hugs to you. Sea Witch

  13. Hi Tiina! I always enjoy your blog! I just nominated you for an award....please check out my blog!

  14. Those are great plates. I love anything with vintage numbers on it. Don't think I could use the vintage ledger paper as placemats. I'd be too freaked out if someone spilled on them!

  15. No clutter? How can you do that? We are the clutter king and queen!

  16. Thank you for sharing this cute idea. It's a must-try on the next dinner with friends.
    Visiting your blog always brings along lots of insiration.

  17. Thank you so much for the mention. Just want to let you and your readers know that I have signature plates that I'm happy to sign and mail so they can have their books personalized. I had so many people wanting to send me their books to sign, that I thought it would be easier, and more cost effective, to go this route. Come visit me at, or just email me at, and I'll mail one out!

    Again, thank you for the mention. And Heather's work is absolutely amazing!
