On a whim, I put together some snippets from our tiny garden and...befittingly...
made a miniature bouquet in a tiny cordial (?) glass...set atop a tiny, hand painted plate.
I thought it was such a charmingly tiny frugal luxury that I couldn't help but share it with you.

Confession: I have a dual personality when it comes to organizing...at times I'm nearly obsessive about it...other times...not so much :).
ENCHANTED PEG BOARD
"Last night I dreamed of Pegboard..."
Once upon a time (a few year's ago) I was trying to think-up attractive, yet frugal, ways to organize my craft area. One morning my husband (Mike) woke up to tell me of a dream he'd had about creating a set of good-looking (his words) peg board organizers with frames. I asked him to describe them in detail and ended up LOVING the idea. That very day, we went off to Ganahls (a local Home Depot-like store) and found these 2' x 3' pieces of pegboard (unpainted, but already cut) for about $4 each. We then bought about $12 worth of molding (enough for four pegboards) and proceeded home to put them together.
I primed, then painted the peg boards a pale blue...then painted the (already cut) molding. Once the pieces dried, we used Liquid Nails (R) to attach the molding.
We now use them in our craft room to store all manner of supplies:
They hold dried and faux flowers...
two others hold a row of wire window boxes that store ribbons, wrapping paper, and gift bags...the other stores little baskets that hold small brushes, glue sticks and the like (I'll post photos of them on another day--I already had this photo taken and I wanted to post this idea today so I could join the party :) !

I think you'll have as much fun as I did.
