A Christmas Crash Course In Reorganization

JLow 'Twas the morning before Christmas and all thru the house, not a creature was stirring, not even my spouse. Then, lo and behold there arose such a clatter, but no one awoke to see what was the matter. As I crossed the hall to my studio steps, my eyes opened wide to the sight of a wreck. My shelf of collectables had crashed to the ground, cd's and goodies scattered around. After picking through, sweeping up, and packing away, I realized that lots of this stuff did not need to stay. So, the car was loaded with a donation haul, and I was off to Goodwill instead of the mall.

Now to stop rhyming and tell you the truth, here's what I did with the shelf; and you could too... Ribbon ShelfRibbon ShelfHere's the shelf that crashed to the ground repurposed as a ribbon organizer.

Here's Wishing you a "Refreshed" 2016!

Listening: The Truth According to Us

book image -- The Truth According to Us I am currently listening to "The Truth According to Us" by Annie Barrows

This novel is set in the 1930's in the fictional town of Macedonia, West Virginia. Ms. Barrows peppers the landscape of her story with many familiar landmarks to those of us from West Virginia. I am absorbed in the characters and the plot and find it utterly delightful. Highly recommended!
