We're going back to NYC for a week in June so we decided that rather than exchange Christmas presents we would buy each other tickets to a show on Broadway.
BUT that's not really something we can put under the tree!
So as I was going through closets looking for things to go in the 'Put and Take', I came across this chest that my Dad had given to my Mom. (I actually thought that he had made it but when I talked to her tonight, she said, 'No, he had bought it.' But she couldn't remember when - and I couldn't recall when she had passed it on to me. But she was thrilled that I was going to pass it on to Leanne.
|I used some dollhouse carpet to line the bottoms of the compartments. I had quite a choice and had shown them to Mom when she was over yesterday. She was pleased with the pink as it's "her colour".|
This place it a complete disaster area! It's not so great at the best of times but now it's SO bad, I'm in danger of being condemned as a hoarder! I'm trying to clean out my storage room so it'll be easy to deal with when some plumbing pipes are replaced after the New Year. I've been emptying closets and drawers looking for things to put in the 'Put and Take'. Not to mention the 'in progress' miniature projects that are on the card and dining room tables... Plus I brought up my totes of Christmas wrapping paper and gift bags so I'm trying to get presents wrapped and bagged....
Once it all comes together, it'll be great but in the meantime, I can hardly walk around.
Have to speed up working on all these things....
