Hey...I've discovered the cure for procrastination!!!! All you have to do is post a promise out there on the World Wide Web...... then there's no turning back. Hee-hee!!! :-D
Okay, if truth be told...the title really should have read...'Somewhat Better', because I still have LOTS of bins full of supplies that still need to find a permanent home, but I made a good dent in the situation this week.
This tower shelf unit (below) used to be in the laundry room, but it wasn't being used efficiently and I had two, so I brought one upstairs. I got them a long time ago from a store that has since gone out of business. Sorry. : (
The "door" that now sits horizontal on stacking drawers came from the City Dump while we were there throwing away some of our junk, two visits ago. My thanks goes to the donor.
The little Lazy Susan, above, came from Pottery Barn (thanks to a gift card I had from my son and DIL...thanks you two!), but the little buckets to go into the slots were WAY overpriced, so I got these white ones from Target for $1.00 each.
Another one of my "inventions" made from something I got at the Thrift Store. Don't even try to get into my brain...it's WAY too scary in there! :-D
This (below) used to store shoes. Now it stores my bottle collection.
Can someone please tell me what my obsession with decorated bottles, is all about? Some of these, I have made, some are purchased (above). Why are they so charming? Do I have a sickness? Is there a cure? Again, a rhetorical question...don't answer!!
If you've been around for awhile, you'll remember how this "Guestroom" turns into a "Studio" when our friends and family go back home.
I have a new Secret Weapon. Would you like me to share it with you?
I wish I could take credit for this idea. I read about this system a long time ago in either Confessions of an Organized Housewife or...The Joy of Homemaking. Which ever one it was...thank you dear author! Normally, if I can't see it, I forget I have it or forget where it is.
BY THE WAY...this "roll-a-dex" came with all those cards. I promise I've only filled out a few so far.
Well, I hope you enjoyed my attempt to get a handle on the insanity around here. Thanks for all the encouraging comments and (personal confessions) about your craft spaces, too. : )
