Crusty hinge, magnet and a favorite photo...
Positioned this way, it can stand alone...
Just add a picture with a magnet and ta da!
I opted for a plain old magnet because I like the look with the picture...but get out your Gorilla Super Glue and go nuts with your button and vintage bling collections if youd prefer...
Positioned this way it can lean against something and really show off its layers of chippy goodness...
Great little junky touch to tuck in here and there and all over the place...

So I've been doing some more sorting...this time it's the garage...yikes!  I came across my rather large collection of rusty, crusty wonderful hinges.  I realized how much I really love them just on their own and wanted to come up something I could do to really feature the ones that were really "speaking to me"...you get that right???  So anyway...here's what I came up with.  It's so simple that I'm quite sure I'm not the first to think of it, but it was new to me so I decided to share it...

Kenda - I wish they would have done more of this kind of decorating too! :)

Thanks for sharing!
