I made this fun necklace out of a vintage Arm & Hammer bird card.  This one is from the 1930's when they used to put these little cards into baking soda boxes.  It is fun to imagine what is would have been like back then. I can picture grandma with her apron on and in the kitchen baking.  I can visualize her anticipation in opening a new box of baking soda to see what little treasure she was going to find.  I have about 30 of these little bird cards and they are so beautiful and really colorful.  I have been cleaning out my craft room and bought box type shelves to organize it all.  I have all kinds of fun vintage finds down there that I like to use to make jewelry the only problem is it has overtaken the room.  So I need to find away to organize it all so I can have more work space. If it turns out okay maybe I will post a picture.  I think it is going to take a while to get it all done. I want to hang some pretty lights above my workstation.  I am looking for an idea that will work for the tools, so I can hang them above my workbench.  I want to try and make it look creative.  If you have any ideas please forward them to me.
