Crib Spring Memo Board

So...
I have been seeing cute memo boards made out of old bed springs on pinterest.
I was in the attic looking for crib parts for my head board project for the guest room.
I pulled the spring down when I pulled the crib down. 


The crib was from the 40's or 50's so the spring is nice and crusty. I decided to hang it in the sunroom.
It's pretty casual in that room so we can use a bit of rust to go with other chippy, faded stuff.
I put some vintage postcards on it.



A photo or two and a cup fragment from the trash pile up at the mountain cabin where I went in July. A feather from a road trip. 


 

 A precious drawing my husband did when we got our trailer. 
Pine cones from the day there was some tree trimming going on at the lake.


Cooler temps have come to Texas. I can't wait until we can go camping. 


I think I have shared with you  how much sentiment goes into my decorating.
I'm not solely a grab it and get it from HomeGoods type of decorator. (Although, I love a good browse at the retail decorating emporiums.)
My decorating usually stems from some sort of memory.











Anyway it's cute. I like it. I don't know if I'll keep it long term, but it has been a fun display.
I can't wait to add some fall stuff in the next few weeks. Christmas might be fun with it too.
Just thought I'd share.
