I love the Dollar Store, do you? There’s one by a Target I go to which just means double the fun, spend a lot at Target, spend a little but get a lot at the Dollar Store *wink* I found floral drawer liner and I bought four of them to replace this crazy bright green one I put in two years ago:
What was I thinking? I don’t know, but I do know damask is it not my thing and has stopped being my thing about seven years ago…
Old lady florals however will last me until I’m 80. Or at least the next two years – ha. See the way my drawer bottom has a gap? I may not have a stocked kitchen but I do have a house full of art supplies and home improvement things so I used the time to also nail everything back together. It’s my dad’s old desk growing up that I spray painted white and added a stainless steel laminate top.
Yes that’s an nail emery board that’s a English soldier, got him when I was at the Tower of London, hee hee. Melayne and I were so busy shopping at the Tower of London store we had no time to check it out because it closed that we had to go back the next day to see it. The souvenirs I buy when traveling are things I often use and so on a daily basis when I see them, it makes me happy.
Ah doesn’t that look so much better? I know with all my junk you can barely see it, but I know it’s there! I love that the back of the rolls there is a grid so it makes it easier to cut straight – like the wrapping paper that has that on the back!
The house has lost a total of like 500 lbs. Not that I actually weighed any of my belongings, but Benjamin and I went on this purging kick where we went through every drawer in every room, every closet, bin, you name it and either threw things out or added it to a donate bin. Clothes went to our church’s compassion center, while home goods went to Dove Thrift Shoppe which benefits the local Hospice of the Valley.
As I took everything out of my desk drawers I carefully examined each to see if they should return to my desk. I now have gold or pink paperclips and tossed out pens, notepads and stickies, all things we have an abundance of, right?
Feels great! In my mind I think I still need to clean but I think I covered it all, until spring comes and next will be my closet again! Do you use drawer liners?
