Inspirations

I have this evolving space in the back of the kitchen that never seems quite - it.

I've tried several things and came up with:
That's just not - it.

Nope, that's not - it.

It isn't doing - it - for me.
I also have a big sub-zero fridge that came with the house. Don't get too excited, it's old, it has issues. One of them - unrelated to being old - is that leftovers get lost in there. Some how they creep to the back when the door is closed and start their own little science experiments.

We're not good with leftovers.
[Which is odd, considering the amount of testosterone in my household; even the dog is male.]

So I thought this would be a great idea for my kitchen area, maybe even propped up on the back table as art and function! Now to just find the right item for repurposing ...

Then I was cruising blogs and found this post that also led me here to hand make play silks. Something I have wanted to do for some time. Harrison loves the few vintage scarves that I have and some larger versions would serve him well in his creative playtime! Plus, he can help me make them!

I have areas like that in my house too- that just aren't "it"- I make due with what's there, until...

Thanks so much for the silk scarves links!! I had a professor in my master's program who used them for so much with kids in the classroom, and I went right to the fabric store here- no silk (that I felt would work) so I bought tulle- does not work the same. Even though I teach 11-12 year olds, these silks would be so nice! Also, the kool-aid coloring should be fun. I bookmarked those sites for another day.
Thanks again, and good luck with your functional art project!

the cool-aid dye silks look like so much fun! I am going to have to do it someday....when penelope gets a little older.
