Let's do pictures again so I won't get too wordy.
|A couple of weeks ago this was my system for storing lace and trim. I outgrew this system with one eBay purchase.|
|This is my new lace storage system. I wanted something that would organize *and* display my trims so this works for now. I do tend to change things up quite often.|
|I've ordered a center support for the curtain rod and I need to collect a few more vintage brooches so I'll have one on each hanger.|
|I put the dead cow skin in my reading nook and I absolutely love it.|
|I loaded the shelves with little knick knacks, travel souvenirs and collectibles that I've gathered over the years. What I really need is a curio cabinet but I haven't found just the right one yet. When I do I will once again repurpose these shelves.|
|Also at IKEA I picked up a couple of pairs of really cheap sheers for the family room windows. I miscalculated so I'll grab another package tonight. They're $4.98 for a 2 pack so I might grab extras just in case.|
|Since I was in a window treatment mode, I changed up the one in our bedroom. I took down the glove valance that nobody but me liked and replaced it with a decorative rod and a long piece of fabric that I got at a thrift store a while back.|
|I used a pair of gloves and a vintage rhinestone brooch for the tie backs.|
|The rest of the gloves are now hanging over the window in the back door. I need to pick up a double rod so I can hang a curtain then use the gloves as a valance over it. I like them, dang it, I don't care if no one else does.|
|This jar began it's life with spaghetti sauce in it but after painting the inside it's now a lovely vase. Taylor's room has a beachy theme so it will go well in there. I made the flowers out of coffee filters that I dyed pink with avocado skins.|
|I'm making some dictionary page flowers but don't have any immediate plans for what to do with them yet.|
|These are coffee filter hibiscus flowers that I'm still tweaking.|
|Hung these little shelves that I had sitting around so my buttons would have a place to live.|
We're having house guests next weekend so I'm not going to start any big projects until after they've gone. One thing I need to do is clean out my garage. I know, I keep talking about it and not doing it. I also have a storage cabinet in my art room that is just sitting there empty. That is not acceptable. I need to put it to good use but it's too ugly in its present condition so I'm thinking about painting it or maybe covering it with dictionary pages or fabric or something. That has to be done outside so I just need about 4 days in a row with no rain. Is that too much to ask? Apparently so.
