I have a fun book called Rags: Making a Little Something Out of Almost Nothing , written by sisters Linda and Stella Allison and published in 1979.

I could imagine hanging all my high heels on there;-) Then I discovered chicken wire at the Dollar Store and found one of those wire clothe hangers in my closet and my chandelier-idea was born.
