Multipurpose Hair Products?

Hi, I think you will like this post. Many of my regulars know my hubby passed away in September. Since that time, I have been busy cleaning and de-cluttering in an attempt to rid the house of all unnecessary items. I am planning on having on heck of a huge garage sale this spring! The other day while cleaning out some bathroom cabinets I came across these curling rods and foam rollers from days gone by. I instantly thought WOW.... these would make great ribbon holders! So I set out to try them out and here are the results. They are terrific and because you can buy them from a wholesale beauty supply house in various sizes to handle all size ribbons I think these are my new favorite ribbon wrappers. In the same cabinet where some old foam rollers. I experimented wrapping ribbon around one which worked wonderfully. The foam on mine from being there so long was dry rotted so I removed foam and wrapped and closed ribbon around the roller rod omitting the foam which I would suggest since foam does dry rot.

So these went from the trash to recycle bin real quickly! I hope you find this ribbon storage idea as neat as I do.

One last favor.... putting a plug in for my very talented daughter.... Kathy is in the MFT Idol contest on SCS and voting starts this evening. You can find more information on her blog throughout the day. For those that are members please remember to vote for your favorite and hopefully your vote will be for "20something".

I am off to enjoy some sunshine temps are a whooping 60 here today. Feels good to know spring is near finally after what seems like a very long winter. I will be back later with a card hopefully but couldn't contain myself I just had to share this discovery with everyone:)
Enjoy your day and thanks for stopping by.
