Stuff, Stuff, and More Stuff
REALLY good stuff.
See the darker brown, smaller set of drawers? I found that at Ditto in Holland. It's not old, but it works so well with the box we already have, which is full of drawing things. This new one fits right in and will hold my watercolors and brushes. What, you didn't know I drew and painted? Um. Well, I happen to enjoy it very much, I am just not good at it. But there is no stopping me once I get an idea.
Seriously. One just NEVER KNOWS when one might need this.
This great book was a mere 50 cents.
The stories in it are really sweet too.
And the view out her kitchen window is so different from mine. Sigh...
The white one would look great with red geraniums, don't you think? One on each side.
And the tan one perfectly holds my journal, Kindle, phone, camera, and all the other sundry things I carry out into the backyard with me.
Notice the variety of fabric too! These are just odd pieces that I shall think up something to do with. You never know, the American Girl Doll MIGHT be called upon someday to attend a school requiring her to wear a plaid skirt. If not, she will have plenty of scarves. Plenty.
I have this saying on my fridge, a poster, and a mug. But now I can put it on even more things!
Sadly, I STILL haven't figured out how to just "Snap out of it." But that doesn't mean it isn't yet a good idea. And you know me, I do like a good idea!
This basketball playing guy matches some other stamps I have.
This looks like it's maybe meant to be an ornament. It set me back 25 cents. Hmm. That's not what they sell for a the touristy places up north.
SLOOOOWLY I've been picking up wooden embroidery hoops whenever I find them for cheap. These are of the thicker variety, and I've never paid more than 75 cents for one. Usually less than that.
I've come across this idea in a few different places. Some people stain them, some glue or nail the pieces together. So far, mine is holding together just fine all on its own. If I DO anything else to it, I think I would wire them together. You know, because someday I might think of something else to do with them.
(I know it isn't cool anymore, but I like stuff.)
