at any rate, it makes me optimistic on a lot of fronts.
one of those fronts is the organization front. what if i actually WAS for once in my life? would you all fall over? i think i would!
i went on a little whirlwind 'i haven't been in so long' thrifting binge last weekend with friends on 2 separate occasions. all i bought was storage stuff. let's take a look, shall we?
this one makes me dizzy! it's a 60s record album holder...using it to store my monthly receipts for the office. it really is fab.
here's an old egg basket, i think. what caught my eye was the giant ball of string...there were actually TWO giant balls of string....one that I gave to lou, because we both like string :) i'm going to keep my extra yarn in it in the craftroom.
the 'electrobrain' is a rather big storage box made of wood. it has a hinged top to hold all kinds of fun stuff. also for the craft room. i am thinking i will put casters on it, so i can roll it around. it also has a slot in the top that the lady selling it said may have been for a ballot box. looks like it has been through a couple of different lives :)
these cute little wooden drawers are kind of nasty at the moment. they were retrieved from a scary, dark, unheated salvage place in canton. the little placards are so unbelievably COOL...! can hardly wait to clean em up and put something in em!
another craft room item. a little mod green plastic supply holder. i has a lifetime's worth of straight pins and needles in it already - for the craft room :)
sheesh! that is more organization than i can even handle! i need to keep plugging away at the basement paint job, so that i can put this stuff to good use!
