Busting at the seams
I need a bigger house! No, not really. I think the size of my home is just right for a family of 5 and numerous 4 legged creatures to roam. However, I wouldn't mind a nice cottage somewhere on the property to hoard all the items that I just cannot seem to part with.
One item in mention is this: I am in LOVE with this chippy white and rusty zinc-ish wall shelf. I found one, and debated selling it for a long time - but finally gave it up and put it in the shop - of course it sold within 2 hours:( I vowed if I ever come across another...its mine forever. Low and behold I just managed to get my hands on another. I was happier than a bird with a french fry (just had to throw that cute little saying in there:) but I was.
I went through all my books to get some ideas and walked around the house for the better part of a week and came to the sad decision that.....I didn't have one open spot available to put it. Its larger than it looks in the photos: 35"x 7"x 25" and darn heavy. So, it is with a very heavy heart that I give it up again. If anyone has any creative ideas as to how I can keep this shelf without the use of another wall molly, I'm all ears.
But that little backyard cottage of my own is going on my wish list immediately.
