Squirrels Are Much More Fun....
I got the bead stash cleaned out this morning. At least I know where everything is now....That's not saying that it doesn't need more sorting, but the top half of the dresser, where the beads are is straightened and labeled.
I don't know what I did before I bought a DYMO letratag. It's one of my favorite things for organizing.
I have been using them so long that I am on my second one. The first one was just a plain label maker. It finally gave up the ghost a few years ago.
This one is even better than the first. It has all kinds of bells and whistles. I can even put all kinds of symbols on the labels if I want them.
Anyway, I also finished one of the shelf units on the other side of the room. It wasn't too hard. Mostly books. Again, they need to be sorted some, but at least they are all together. No more needlework books all over the room.
I left some pretties at eye level.
I made pretty much everything in here but the bashed wardrobe and the Chrysnbon chair. Oh! And the orchid on the pink shelf. One of my friends did that.
The green purse on the floor, by the chair is one of my bead knitting purses. It was a pattern that I found on the net.
The only problem is....If you move one shelf to the right, you encounter this....
This time I will glue things down. I want to keep the stuff that is in there, in there.
The little men in the cactus is one of my soft sculpture pincushions that I used to sell at craft markets, back in the early 80s. The wood part is the skeleton of a choilla cactus.
I used to make them look like caricatures of real people and someone would come along and say, "That looks like my wife,brother or girlfriend, etc.. I often wondered how many people got them thrown at their heads for saying that to the person receiving it. They were pretty weird looking.
Anyway, I made the mistake of coming into the computer area to get the camera... I should never look out the window in there...
This little guy is one of the newer ones. He was just starting to stuff his cheeks when I caught him. How cute is that little pink tongue?
I think that I should take the rest of the day off to do some squirrel watching....Much more fun that room cleaning!
See you tomorrow.
