Last year we discovered the allure of the flatware pouch (see The Thanksgiving Table Reimagined, via an LA Artisan), and lately we've been spotting more examples in canvas, leather, and a couple that are integrated into placemats. Here's a roundup of six we're liking. For more tabletop styling ideas, see our posts: DIY: A Thanksgiving Centerpiece (for Under [...]
I'm always on the lookout for creative and interesting ways to solve everyday problems. It really is a passion of mine! There's a world of possibilities out there if you're willing to get creative (and if you're willing to use an item for something other than its intended purpose). :-) Related:25 Crazy Clever Uses For Cheap Tension Rods The subject of today's post falls into that very category. I'm going to show you the versatility of one of my all-time favorite organizing toolsā¦ the over the door organizer!

Image: About the Design This 1920's beach cottage was definitely not an easy kitchen to design, but owner/designer Gail Bolling was up for the challenge.
The homeowner, Andrea, wanted more counter space, a large kitchen island, and overall to improve the functionality of her kitchen. She also wanted to relocate her existing laundry unit to a space outside the kitchen.
Is there anything unique about this kitchen? When we asked Gail if there was anything unique about this kitchen she responded that the floor plan and layout itself was the most unique feature. This kitchen has openings on all four sides. It opens to the family room, the dining room, the living room, and the stairway. This alone was difficult to design around but Gail wanted to be sure the space felt bright and open.
She replaced the old window behind the sink for a larger one that looks out onto the homeowners garden. She also carried the white cabinet color up onto the new beadboard ceiling. This helps to make the space seem larger as well as hide the engineered beams that were needed for support.
What was the most challenging part of the design/remodel process? This was a 1920s beach cottage that had several updates and additions. There were huge structural columns that had to be removed and an engineered beam that had to be run across to make that possible. While renovating, the contractors also found a chimney hidden behind the wall that now adorns a lovely vintage poster. Gail had to readjust the design to accommodate the wall at no cost to the homeowner.
When the kitchen was finally complete, Gail said now this kitchen looks as though it was original to the house like it's always been there, because that's the way it was meant to be designed all along.

AVirginia mama's decorated Halloween pumpkins went viral after sheposted the above photo to a BreastFeeding Mama Talk Facebook Page. She captioned the photo: This is my 'pump'kin. She is so happy to give her baby the perfect seed nutrients. I'm very passionate about breastfeeding. Just wanted to inspire other mamas to be creative for Halloween. #normalizebreastfeeding. Related:Normalize BreastFeeding With Tree Of Life 'Brelfies' The Mama/baby pumpkins pic has already been liked over 14,000 times, with over 2,000 comments of approval. Tignor says that she thinks people are so supportive because many mamas are just tired of the struggle they face with others 'bashing' them. She says that her pumpkins show that there is no need to feel shame for anything, and she wants women to be proud of their natural ability to feed their children.
Tignor, mama of two, says that even though there have been a few negative responses, she's not deterred because that's just going to happen in life. Many mamas said they were inspired by her to copy the idea for Halloween, and some give her praise for her badass carving skills. Related:25 Children's Books That Depict Breastfeeding Tignor hopes that her pumpkins spark conversations that help normalize breastfeeding more, and to give other mamas encouragement to follow.
