Organize Simplify Create Design

It is perpetual, living life and keeping it simple. Peace of mind comes from having a place for things. As I watched "Horton Hears a Who", with my grandchildren I thought about no matter how "tiny" the thing, it deserves a home. So I live by the old adage, a place for everything and everything in its respective place...

Garden Glove Storage

Tis the Season...
For gardening that is!
I have sought the perfect garden glove for ages and I think I may have found the "one"!
My goatskin gloves are wonderful.
What I like about them is:
  1. They are soft and subtle. Best of all they stay that way when you get them wet.
  2. Available at Lowes
  3. Protect my hands
  4. Last longer than cloth or canvas gloves.
  5. Leather has a tendency to get stiff after they are wet.
I recently saw where someone posted on Pinterest showing magnets being sewn into the cuffs of the gloves to attach them to a metal bucket to keep track of them. One reader pointed out that the magnets would stick to the side of washer or dryer. Good point I thought. Someone else mentioned that she clips hers with a clothes pin to her plastic weed bucket! 
I love this idea!

As for drying out my gloves if they have gotten wet? I simply place them over the top of my lopers to allow air to circulate through and they wave at me when I'm looking for a pair. Tell me about your gloves or other gardening equipment. I will be posting my own tried and true methods too!
