No More Wire Hangers

I've been thinking a lot lately about how a home should be practical and beautiful. It should function in a streamlined way, but be an expression of the people who live there. It should be warm, but yet free of excess. Since a home should be a personal reflection of who lives there, a thoughtful housewarming gift should meet the practical and beautiful criteria. Have you ever thought of giving wooden hangers to a new homeowner? That is a gift you know they would put to use and have for years. Definitely meets the practical. Imagine stepping into your closet and seeing everything on wooden hangers......definitely meets the beautiful.

Besides who wouldn't want to move from this.....

to this?

I have been thinking about changing over our closets to all wood hangers. It's a serious feat, but everyone says in the end it's very worth it!

It bugs me to no end that my closet is a mishmash of different colored plastic hangers. Not as bad as wire, but not nearly as zen as *all* wood.

You are hysterical! I STILL think about that movie...it was so haunting.

Btw, I had not seen anything about those pencils, so thanks for sharing:)

All my hangers are gorgeous wooden ones, and I have never regretted the expense. My closet inspired my Mom. She found wonderfully priced ones at IKEA. Just thought I'd share.
