Afternoon Quickie

No, it's not what you think! I've been wanting to gussy up some clothespins to use as chip clips for a while, so today, I put on an old movie (All About Eve) and painted up a few. After painting, I edged them with black ink, and then sanded them down to distress them a bit. I like the way they look old:

I'd still like to attach a few to a board and hang it in the laundry room as a place where orphan socks can hang out until they are (hopefully) reunited with their mates.
