Finally, A Use For Seed Catalogs
We all have them, we all hate to throw them away. I finally came up with a use for last year's catalogs that I'm quite happy with. I have an antique oak desk that I do all my work on (computer's there, crafting things, writing, bills, etc.. you know, desk stuff). It doesn't like coffee mugs or cups or much else that's damp (or could be) sitting on it. One day I picked up a beautiful bulb catalog I'd gotten in the mail and wasn't going to order from and stuck it under the cup. It had to be the biggest, prettiest coaster I ever used, and it's been there ever since. It protects the desk, holds drinks, a great place to put a mug of hot soup, even a supper plate when I'm confined to the desk for a meal. Best thing about it is, when it gets wet or messed up or even just boring, take off the front page, toss it in the trash and you have another page full of new flowers or vegetables to brighten your desk. Sure, it's simple, but boy is it frugal!
So far, this is my best one yet... anybody else have a use for them?
