Hiding Computer Wires

When you live in a really old house,
electrical outlets can be a problem

The first half of my house was the original house,
so there isn't anywhere to plug things in.

So when I'm not on the computer we have this..........

When I am working on the computer
we have this..........

and this........

And this...........
 And I know this is not 
OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) 

I have almost taken out my computer few times!!!

Oh and on a side note........
I know......... he's iron, and weighs a ton!
Cutest pig EVER!

Back to my post........

Hobby Lobby 50% off!!!

Taaaa Daaaa!

Add some spring cuteness!!

And there you have it!
Hidden computer cords!

I wonder how long before Tim the cat tears that apart.....

Being the "green", Tree Hugger, Earth Muffin 
that I am!
This is what I use at the grocery store.

I'll have fresh flowers hanging out of it when I shop!

How New Yorkie, France, Italy of me!

Carry on!

  1. You need a good electrician to put in some new outlets for you. LOL!! I used to have this problem in my house in St. Pete. Don't you just hate that? However, very cute way of hiding the cords. Yes, I think you need a cute bag to!

  2. I love your cute idea of hiding the cords! I really love your kitchen too!

  3. Too funny! Loved this post and the basket! Great solution and very French of you, haha!
    This would be great to take to the Farmer's Market!
    Tres chic! :) ~M

  4. That is such a cute basket. I love the tulips too. I'm in the same boat--my cat would not be able to stay away from that! :)

    Have a great day.

  5. I'm a 'cord hater''s a huge pet peeve of mine. Love the natural touch you've used to hide yours :) I'm also a basket addict so I'm lovin' that basket.

  20. I was laughing so hard at this Jane because it is so me...We have a giant orange extension cord going from our living room to our pellet stove in the kitchen. The outlet is in the floor so we all continually trip on it and stub our toes...Great call with the basket....

  28. Electrical wires can be a lot more trouble some when not handled properly, they are to be adjusted in a way that they don't prove risky to the house-owners. BTW nice house.
