Various and Sundry...

I finished a basket to store my remotes in last night.  The black one in the back is very long and odd shaped.  It never stays where I put it.  Rolls off of flat surfaces.  I got tired of chasing it down all of the time so this is the solution...
As I said in the title...I am wandering from subject to subject today. 

I was looking for more plastic storage containers this morning....Walmart was completely wiped out in the fishing section, where I usually buy them.

I happened to stop at Dollar Tree on my way home and look what I found!
 There were only three left.  They are from Crafter's Square and just a nice size for a project or two.

The dividers are not movable, but hey, for a dollar a piece, why worry?

I am sure you are asking, where are the minis?  Here you go.
This isn't glued together yet, but the door is coming along nicely.  I do have the wood glued together, but I still have to put a finish on it.  Then I can start working on the hinges and other fixtures.

I still have to turn the piece in the window copper.  I decided I liked the copper with this stain. 

The hinges and the plate behind the handle are from a copper ring like the one at the left.

They are ring blanks that I got from a place on  ETSY.  I think that I paid 3.00 for a five pack of them.  I bought them more for minis than for rings.

They are thin and can be cut with flush cutters.(Jewelry pliers)

I will probably have that done tomorrow.  I didn't get much more of the spackling done yesterday.  Real life got in the way. 

I am going back to work now, right after I clean up the kitchen....Real life once again.

See you tomorrow.

Your door looks remarkable. I like your containers. We have a Dollar Tree around here but it's so out of the way that I have only been there once.

Fantastic door! I can't wait to see it installed.

Hi Casey. Interesting door! I didn't see any plastic boxes like that when I was at my Dollar Tree last. What are you going to use them for?

Phyllisa, they will probably be filled with projects that I can transport to Wednesday Witch mini meetings.
