need a way to dry/keep track of all those glovesmittenshatsandscarves that make their way into your front foyer? try this brilliantly faux-pressive trick:
hang a length of cord from a ceiling hook. attach smallish wooden clothespins down the length of the cord by tying knots on either end of each pin.
use clothespins to hold random snow-cessories while they dry.
another great tip that i think looks super cute is to take a shallow tray, large enough to hold several pairs of boots, and fill with largish-sized pebbles (you can steal them from your neighbors landscaping or buy them at any home-improvement store). store wet winter boots on the tray and water will wick away while staying off your floors.
