an old hanger

An old hanger turned into a hanger for my sunglasses. For the sunglasses that I like to collect and then never wear because I usually always need my glasses when I'm out and about and am too cheap to buy prescription sunglasses. I will also in no way get transition lenses (not mocking anyone who does).

I first saw this on pinterest but wanted to give proper credit to the photographer especially because it's a blog I have been following for awhile now. She takes the most gorgeous photos; there is something very clean about them that makes me very happy. Her name is Hilda Grahnat. She posted the below photo and I immediately knew I wanted to copy her in my own way.

As luck would have it I found my hanger the very next day at a thrift shop for fifty cents not to be confused with the over inflated gangsta rapper with the ripped abs. Not that you would have trouble confusing the two.

Now that you've been mesmerized by that bright, lovely shot here are my crappy point and shoot pics.  
I twisted yarn around the base of mine to give it a little something more and to help protect my very expensive $10 sunglasses.
Tyrone says, all of your glasses look the same but I each and every one of them have their own look at least I think so. Boys, pssh!
Now all I can think about is finding a bunch of old hangers like this switching them out for all of my plastic ones. I also love what we use to do to hangers in the old days when we would crochet them. This is the old granny side of me coming out. Speaking of old grannys, I have a silly DIY of a country granny sweater DIY.

these have a slight rounded cat eye that you can't see in this pic but I love it

I have a ton of hangers from my great-grandma that are crocheted and they are my absolute favorite!

I never thought of hanging sunglasses from a hanger but it's pretty genius. Maybe I'd remember to take them more often if I had them hanging instead of laying on the overcrowded counter.

This is such a great idea!! I've got sunglasses laying all over the place in our bedroom, so I need to do this, pronto!!

awesome idea. i like your take with the pop of color. although, a background poster of 50 cent *or just fitty, as he is to me* would be fabulous.

Thanks Alisha, I'm glad we're together on the fitty cent thing!
