Shabby Hooks

If you know me, you know that I love love receiving fun mail, as in handwritten snail mail delivered by the USPS. Every day I anticipate the mail truck's delivery and look forward to seeing what is in our mailbox. All too often it is just junk mail or bills. I look forward to coupons, ads & free samples, but nothing gets me excited like a hand addressed letter or a package from a friend!

Last week, I opened our mailbox to find a very fun for-no-reason-other-than-I-love-you (which is the BEST reason!) package from my mom and inside were these cute hooks that match our guest room! I was tickled because they so perfectly match the colors and decor in that room and I just knew they would look wonderful on the wall. They provide a great spot for guests to hang their towels or a jacket.

I thought that scrapbook paper inserted into the opening instead of photos would be a shabby touch and I had the perfect scrapbook paper already on hand! I cut the paper to size and hung the hooks on the wall this week and I think they turned out so cute! Thanks Mom! Love you!

What fun! Moms are so great because they send you fun little packages like that. I love it. The hooks are adorable and the scrapbook paper is a great addition. :)

Wow! Your mom did a great job matching your guest room colors. It's going to be so perfect with all the "new" stuff you'll be able to show later. :)
