  4. Hi Rita!

    I found you through Marty's TTT. What wonderful ideas for the shutters. I have seen them also on a smaller scale in a bedroom with little hooks to hang jewelry on. I've also been peeking into your blog and I love the pallet idea! Can't wait to dig some more. I'm one of your newest followers.

  5. use the shutters in so many different ways...looks fantastic.

  6. After seeing these, I suddenly had the urge to look for some old shutters and combine them with my mirror. I so love that second photo, and how it went well with the additional d├ęcor. Old shutters are truly recyclable treasures. =)
