Finally a home . . . .

Last summer, I bought this great spice cabinet on our trip to San Antonio.



I painted the edges to match the accent color in the house and hung on the kitchen wall . . . . .


Then found a new home for all my Cushing dyes.  So much more convenient than in the box I had them in . . . . .


There are 96 Cushing dyes all together.  I only have 50 so far.  I can't fit them all in here  and I might not even need them but it will work for now.


Blessings, Cathi

Looks like a great spice cabinet, must have some interesting information on that door. Your dyes looks so neat and tidy in the cabinet.

The ironing board project turned out great...I would join the fun, but I bought a new cover a few months back. I had been making mine too, but got lazy, I guess.

Hey Cathi,
you probably know about these things going on but just in case you don't, check out this site. You might be able to be a vendor.
