Do you need more storage space?
While putting out the Fall decor, I discovered
some storage for my Christmas decorations
that are too delicate for the garage.
The tops of my kitchen cabinets!
You can't see it, but under the baskets are
plastic shoe boxes holding ornaments and
Then, in the large baskets, the larger
decorations like deer and such fit in.
I bought some more of my favorite baskets
at Target -- The ones that come with black
wooden tags on one end and one side.
I plan to paint the black tags white like the
the tag with the number 7 that I hung on the
basket on the left in the picture below.
Are you still with me?
That was a mouthful!
I really have a thing for numbers and chalkboards.
Luckily, you probably do too -- unless you're my
dear husband, who does not get the whole
chalkboard or number thing --
I've learned to say:
"Bless His Heart!"
A term in the South that denotes the person
referenced is just a little off...
So...you can see in the picture above,
I got four baskets up above this side of
The two on the left are different heights
because I ran out of plastic shoe boxes
and need to go buy some more.
I bought a new chicken at a thrift store for $15.
I like her because she looks a little pissed.
If Wild Bill riles me up, instead of saying
"Talk to the hand"
I can say
"Talk to the chicken!"
(bless his heart)
So, as you can see in the picture above, down
came a pumpkin and up went the chicken...
to the right of the scarecrow.
One of my favorite things about the kitchen
cabinets is how the molding on this cabinet
wraps around the wall.
Simple things occupy simple minds!
Speaking of that, Wild Bill said he was
amazed how I could spend hours and hours just
putting up Fall decorations and changing them
around. He commented it was a real gift,
but laughed when he said it so I'm not sure
exactly what he meant...
Bless His Heart!
