    I think I'll use this in my laundry room to hang lonely socks until their mate comes along.

    Since I first saw this very good idea, a few years ago, I've been using this memo rack in my kitchen to "hang" my recipes while baking or cooking, it works great!!! ;)

    I don't think I will try this project, but I would love to know where anyone has been able to find "old fashioned" clothes pins. I have looked everywhere I can think of?
