This is what will be seen when you walk in the front door. Not the best decorating idea at all, but at least I won't be staring at a blank wall any more.
I was disappointed when it was delivered last night because they stained it instead of just putting on a clear lacquer like the others upstairs. I really was considering returning it. Someday when I get all those shelves together in the beautiful studio I have planned out in my head, this one won't match. But then I realized that it matches the downstairs furniture much better, and it's what I have to look at until I decide whether I want to buy another house out here. So it stays!
Can't believe I'm so excited over a silly bookshelf. I love getting tubs and containers. I'm always beside myself with anticipation of what I can put in them. I'm going to unpack some books in the garage tonight, and then figure out where everything will go on the shelves. Lots of room for some quilts, too.
I rummaged around in my closet last night and pulled out some quilts. I made one trip downstairs with an armload, and then decided it would be much easier just to drop them from the balcony above. Daisy was sitting about six feet away, so I dropped three or four quilts. It scared the bejeebers out of her. She jumped and all four feet came off the floor! I dropped over another pile, and that was enough for her. She yelped and ran in her kennel. Took me ten minutes to coax her out of there. She's SO brave! Jane said last night, when I was telling her about my "killer" dog, that Daisy must have thought, "Oh, great, I knew it would come to this! Now quilts are falling from the sky!"
I'm off for a new hairdo and a sew-in day at The Fabric Patch.
My gratitude today: Just rejoicing over all the little pleasures in life!
