Blogtoberfest-Community and Fun!
When I sat down tonight to check up on fellow Blogtoberfesters!?...(that doesn't sound very nice does it?) Vic threw me a lifeline with the meme 'My Place and Yours'.
I was beyond excited because I was really clutching at straws today.
And I'm a bit nosey too. I like to see other peoples stuff:)
So the theme for this week, is On The Shelf. All you have to do to play along, is show something that is 'on the shelf' and link up to Vic's nice blog.
I opted for the 'quick and dirty' and snapped a few pics on my phone. If you think you might like to join in with this meme, all the details can be found at Punky & Me.
ON THE SHELF
These shelves house some of my op shop treasures as well as a few favourite books that I grab when I find a spare minute. Usually in the afternoon when my littlest is sleeping, I make myself a cup of tea and have a quick read.
My favourite little tin was 50c at oppy and it is home to fabric scraps, needle, thread and some metal buttons waiting to be covered. Again, it is something I grab when I don't have a lot of time but need a little crafty quick fix.
I bought the little flower frogs a few months ago at a garage sale. I have wanted one for ages and I almost bought one in an antique shop a while back but it was $10. I ummed and ahhhed and eventually left it on the shelf.
Anyway, I bought these two for just a dollar each. While I always knew what they were for, I didn't actually know they were called flower frogs until I saw it on a blog somewhere. Whatever did we do before google?
I'm using mine to display photos and cards.
I am very possessive about these shelves. They are the only kid free space in the house and they are my happy space. Every other surface is home to toys, pencils, drink bottles, important school notes, 1001 drawings, you get the idea.
