My project for the weekend was this pretty board for holding the mail. I saw one like it in the new Pottery Barn Teen Catalog (Yes, I get all their catalogs because they are eye candy.) Who could afford $179 though? Maybe I should be selling these things after all.
So, I made my own. Vintage fabric, some new ribbon and another message board from Target that I scavenged for parts. I love it! Gee, it was hard to do with Jack running his cars all over it while I was trying to staple though.

This is Jack's beloved "vroom vrooom." The thing must be 30 years old. He rides it for hours every day. I picked it up at a rummage sale for $1. One of the best dollar bills I have spent this summer. I would love to have another for the basement, but, being vintage and all it isn't so easy to come by. Sometimes he takes Dandy for a ride too...
