I'm so excited!

I'm so excited! I have a few pretty tole
trays that I wanted to hang up. Well,
they don't make plate hangers large enough,
so out of desperation, I was willing to
put holes in my trays. Then I found this
product above. It is like velcro, one part for
the wall and one part for the tray but it
has the bonus of no mess removal by
pulling the tab when you want to take them
down. No holes in the wall or the tray!
Maybe you already knew about this. But,
I used it to hang this in my dining room.

I even used it to hang trays on my porch,
though I don't think it is intended for wood
and they might not stay but I thought it
worth the try. It takes so little sometimes!

Soooooo, you're in Ohio, huh? That's not so far from Michigan, you know, and since I spent my entire life in Ohio until last year, I come back.

A lot.

And I steal pink and white bouncy chairs from people's porches whenever I find them. You better hide yours. :-))))

Thank you so much for stopping by! It was great fun to catch up on your blog -- and no, I didn't know about the velcro thingies either. I just hung some trays, also out of desperation -- but with plain ol' double stick tape, figuring I'd deal with the consequences when the time came.

I've added you to my faves and will check back to see what other wonderful things you've discovered to make our lives easier, and any other wonderful trips you've made -- NY looked fun!

Hi Karen, I have seen the hooks but not the velcro stuff. Great idea. I love that pink floral tray and the ones on the porch are gorgeous too.
Hope you are having a nice 4th of July weekend.

Are you sure that pink tray doesn't say " Miss Rhea" on the back ? I could have sworn I set it down somewhere, and when I came back it was gone !! hee hee !!!
