Rambling On....

I am getting not a lot done today. Or at least it feels like it.

I keep finding things that I can use in the potting shed. Some are from when I first started writing the blog and some are even earlier.

The pitchers on these shelves are some that I made when I first started using the computer.  The pattern was from a blog in Europe. The lady that did the blog was a lady named Marlie.  We started referring to them as Marlie's pitchers and the name stuck.  I am going to have to go see if I can find Marlie.  She did beautiful mini work. I don't even know if she is still writing a blog. Anyway, thank you Marlie, wherever you are.  I still love the pitchers.

I am still hanging things in the window with the help of those little disks with the hooks on them.  I have a lot of my grandfather and great grandfather's eyeglasses hanging there.  They are fun to have around.

I also have some antique scissors hanging there and a Japanese comb. 

It's just stuff that I like and couldn't find a place to display them.

Every time I look out the window I get to see what would otherwise be hiding in a drawer somewhere.
Now about the cleaning.  I am still sorting and putting away.  I have resorted to my favorite method of cleaning.  Walter and April both tease me about it.  I put things away if I know where they go.  The things that I don't have a designated place for get thrown in a laundry basket.

That is the last thing I do.  The stuff in the laundry basket gets put away last.  By the time I get to that, I have a lot of empty spaces to fill.  That way, I get rid of the last bit of stuff by filling the spaces.  Hey! Whatever works.  The basket system works for me.  I am going back to work now and start emptying the basket.  Maybe sometime tomorrow I will reach the bottom of the basket and be done...
Of course that could be wishful thinking.  I didn't look up to the plant shelf above the closet before I said that.

I am afraid that I am going to need Walter's help with that part. 

I am not sure if  I want to see what is up there.  I have not been up there for a good 10 or 15 years.

Maybe I should just leave well enough alone...

See you tomorrow....  If I don't get lost somewhere in the workroom.

Is this Marlie's blog?

I apologize to Marlies. I accidentally put an apostrophe before the s in her name. Thanks for correcting me.
