Seek and you will find

Okay today I got off work at 7 am, yes, 7am! I work the wonderful night shift and I wouldnt have it any other way! So being that this is the first yard sale weekend of Spring, me and my Nanny, (the person who I most likely inherited all of my crafting abilities from) decided to go yard selling (saling?) today!! I picked up some great things that I will be repurposing and crafting on in the near future! But my favorite find was an accident.
Have you ever just seen a flea market find and said, "oh this will be perfect for_______" Well it happened to me today. It was like one of those "ah ha" moments. I was so sleepy driving home that I convinced Nanny that I had to make one more stop to get out and walk around. This is the absolute truth, I was about to be asleep at the wheel(I have been up all night remember)
So we stop at this flea market and start browsing and I see this:

 And then I was like, "ah ha, this would be perfect for RIBBON!" Even though I have the Clip it Up ribbon wall storage, this is much cuter, it mixes my love of antiques and ribbon! What is this contraption you might ask? The owner of the flea market said it was used to roll up old newspapers to make into logs for a fire. Hmmm....I like my idea for it better!
The perfect answer to my plethora of organization! :)
