My mother-in-law's saw.  My mother-in-law will turn 80 this year. She has been passing along some wonderful photos like the one of her when she was 10 or 11 with her dog.

She also gave us this saw that she used as a child to help with farm chores.  She had suggested I paint on it but the blade is so thin I had just sat it in the garage.

 Until yesterday!

I love re-purposing things and have been looking for a way to hang some of the tags I have made.  So this is now proudly hanging in my craft room above one of my tables. Have a great Vintage day.  Blessings, Debbie

I love your re-purposed saw from your mother-in-law. The way you are using it is so attractive and SO clever. Your tags are really cute hanging there. I also like the way you have hung your ribbons where you can see and pull so easily. You are too clever. Great job.

Now that is a new for me. I have never in my life seen a saw used like this. Trust you have it hung well and not fall. We had and sed many in my young day. but not in this manner.

What a great idea....I love it! It is amazing how one can use things if they think outside the box, so glad it is not in the garage but displayed and is functional! Have a great VTT!

OH MY GOSH that looks like Shae!!!!!! I love your idea for the saw. If I can find one I'll have to be a copycat!. Your ribbons look so organized. Great job.
