Beauty that Moves. She was rearranging things in her home to make way for her Christmas tree and made space for linens and cookbooks with apple crates. I decided it would be a good solution for me as well. After I cleaned up from Christmas I pulled out these two crates that I have had for years and made this little nook. It freed up some nice space in my linen closet and it is nice to have the table clothes and napkins close at hand that I use the most in the kitchen. I also made room on one of my other book shelves my placing my favorite and most loved cookbooks in the bottom crate. It is nice to have them close at hand in the kitchen as well. I am forever trying to make this house more efficient with storage and I like things to be cozy and pleasing to the eye as well. This idea fit my style, but what I am most excited about is the space that was made available by this simple project.
My mind has already begun whirring with ideas for valentines to make this year. I can't start thinking about these things too soon, so as to make sure there is enough time to create and then send them off in the mail. I am also plotting with regards to a certain little boy's 4th Birthday that will be coming next month. Maybe a little party will be held...we shall see. I have lots of ideas, I just have to whittle them down to a manageable to-do list. It may be Winter, but that never slows us down too much. We have a relaxed business about us and I don't mind that at all...manic and harried are two things I work hard for us not to be.
Oh, and Rubia had her check-up today...she is charting out to be tall and slender just like her brother and sister and she is healthy in all other ways. Thank you Jesus for that!
