It's About Time!

It's been over a year (well, if I'm truthful) closer to two years since I pulled all my bulletin boards and put away everything that I've tossed in shoe boxes over that time. Some tidying up but not a good clean up.

As you all know, it's incredible how many minis you can fit into a plastic shoebox!!!

Here are the bulletin boards propped all over my living and dining room.

The dining room table looks almost pristine (?!?) in the beginning. LOL

My tile collections!

Here it is transferred to sheet protectors in a binder.

All these carpets, runners and hangings.....

fit into a binder also.

Now that I've gone through most of the boxes, it looks like there has been an explosion! The cliche, of course, is that you have to break a lot of eggs to make an omelet. (Did I really write that?)

All THIS is what has to go on the four food/dishes/food prep boards.
I've never been terribly interested in doing a kitchen roombox but I need to use up at least some of this and I have a lot of kitchen cabinets, etc., and an empty roombox so I think maybe that should be on my "to do" list! Ya think?

I did reorganize my clothing board into two. One is clothes only and the other is hats, hatstands, parasols, purses and footwear. Some great stuff but nothing I wasn't aware of.
I've been working off and on on this since 7 this morning so I am going to call it a day and finish watching the final episode of CSI.

Hopefully, I'll get the bulletin boards done in the next couple days then tackle the "room" itself.


  1. Hi Maureen! Your progress and organization skills are All Very Impressive! Having the minis sorted by categories for both binders and on bulletin boards is a lot of work but worth it when it enables you to quickly FIND what it is that you are looking for! :))


    1. Thanks Elizabeth. I do love the bulletin board approach. And like that some of these things work with binders. I'll get it together eventually. I like that reviewing these things gives me a better picture of what I have.
      Hugs, Maureen
