That's what I said in 1983. We had a house fire in June of that year and had to gut the whole house.
I bought this cupboard for the bathroom to go with the one we had in there. However, I needed something for storage in the dining room so I decided to use it temporarily in there! That was nearly 29 years ago!!!
I did indeed need the storage! This is where I have kept my hammer, nails, paint, craft supplies and various and sundry things for, lo, these many years!!
Yesterday I emptied it all out, cleaned it up and put it in the BATHROOM where it belonged in the first place!!
Finally!! Now, after 6 1/2 years of marriage, Louis Dean has a place to put his clothes other than in baskets!
In its place I put this pretty bookcase from Louis Dean's music room.
I need to fix a few places where he boogered it up.....
but I am loving it in here!!
It just took a few minutes to fill it with pretty things!
See the bottom doors?
That's where the hammer and nails live!
I would never find them if they were totally relocated!
While I was at it I decided to go ahead and set the table for a spring dinner.
Recycled packing material and plastic eggs look good together on a birch bark wreath!
Wall to wall furniture.
Works for me!!
So where and what did we eat for dinner last night?
Cheese, crackers, olives and wine outside!
Today Louis Dean is on his music room reorganizing now that he got rid of that big bookcase! I can hear him in there singing along with Waylon. He gets on kicks of listening to a certain artist. I'm just grateful he's not in the mood for Lefty Frizzell!!
While the weather is pretty I am going to work in the yard.
Weed. Edge. Trim.
I can't mow yet as there remains a gash across the lawn where LD dug the trench that saved the den from flooding. The drain pipe is in there so all he has to do is cover it up with dirt and lay some St. Augustine grass sod down.
Wait just a MINUTE!! I bet I could cover that ditch up myself!
Covering it UP has GOT to be easier than digging it in the first place!
If I start he will probably come out and hep me finish it!
"Spring has sprung!
The grass has riz!
I wonder where the FLOWERS is!"
I had a plaque with this quote on a wall for years and years!
I wonder where that plaque is!
