Youch! My last post was June 29th. I haven’t been as idle as it may seem. See my re-do? Click on the photo to see more detail.
My whole craft room has had a re-do!! What a messy job; do you have any idea how many tiny little things I have stashed here and there? Between paper crafting and miniatures, it boggles the mind! I have always been organized but I wanted more than that. So, while organization may be the first step, beautification never fails to start tugging at my spirit shortly thereafter. Add to that all of the YouTube videos of people with craft rooms that look like they came out of Architectural Digest! Peer pressure still reigns for the over 60’s.
I have been scouring the thrift stores looking for things I could put on my walls that would be both decorative and useful. Only one has retained its original color and that is the mahogany shelf I bought for my granddaughter, Jade, to showcase her art pieces. Good thing I didn’t paint it white like everything else! She has informed me that it needs to be pink or purple. O.K. That will work for grandma, too. My little dog, Sara Lee, preferred to keep her cushion in its same spot, so we worked that in as well.
Since my Florida pal, Joyce, and my Fun Daysies miniature group are the only ones who have seen the “before”, they are probably the only ones who will appreciate the full extent of my re-do. I seldom think to document the mess things are before I get it the way I want it. Who wants photos of a mess? (Remember, click on any image to make it larger.)
The vase of flowers on my desk is not just for show. Besides loving to have flowers around me, I thought this was the best way to keep the floral department flowers I had found that would work for paper crafting… much less expensive than the paper crafting department’s flowers!! The large heart on the wall is something my mother made. I think it is the only crafty thing she ever did besides sewing and needlework. So, there you have it! Won’t you leave a comment as long as you’re here? Blessings & Hugs, Ya’ll…
