Bright Idea of the Week

While we are on the subject of organizing I thought I'd share this idea with those of you who are in the process of putting away your Christmas ornaments. I save empty egg cartons and use them for packing away my small breakable ornaments. As much as it kills me to put away these beautiful vintage ornaments, at least I know they will be well protected until next year.

  1. I love that idea :) Now, where do I find the ostrich egg cartons to store the huge ornaments? ;) Your ornaments are beautiful!! I think I broke at least 5 just like them this year! hehe... I like the storage containers you were excited to get in the blog below. Are they up and being used??

  3. That's a great tip Jen and your ornaments look all shiny and cozy in their protective home. I always keep the styrofoam egg cartons to use as paint palettes for craft projects. A little dab of paint in the bottom stays contained and you can add water if needed to dilute the paint. Close the lid and no mess.

  4. Hi Jen, that's a really good idea as the vintage decorations are so fragile! Hope you have a Happy New Year and I look forward to visiting your blog regularly in 2007 - hope you don't mind but I've added a link from my blog! Clare x
