Got this old fold up measuring stick at a flea market today and remembered seeing this idea recently in a magazine...can't remember which one. I thought it was a cute idea to hold cards, or pictures. I collect old flashcards and was lucky enough to find one with my dog's name on it. You can see him in the picture!

The owners have such a way of collecting the coolest stuff and reworking it...and they are great people (I miss you guys!) They always have a fun, eclectic stash of oddities, including the great flashcards shown here. Check them out if you can! Posted: 10:48 pm on October 10th

georgiamoon writes: Sue speaking of the bendy rulers..how did you make one into a tripod to hold a picture. It's probably somewhere in the portfolio of older projects but you also probably remember quite well... so I'd like to make one. Thanks Georgia Posted: 1:48 pm on October 10th
suewhitney writes: This is great! I love these bendy rulers and have used them in oodles of different ways. They are very versatile. You don't have a JRT do you? Can't tell by the photo without my cheaters. If you are the owner of a JRT you can join my support group. Ha! They are so naughty, but oh so sweet. Ya gotta love 'em! Thanks for sharing your idea.
