Storage finds.....

We have been wondering what to put in my craft/sewing/laundry room for STORAGE
Thane had gotten some (free) counter tops off of a job a few years ago that when we remodeled we put up over the washer & dryer and then along the wall to sew and create on.
But we needed something to store all of my many "littles" in.
Yesterday my dear hubby found the perfect organizers on Craig's list!

Vintage Pharmacy Cabinets, complete with ......

drawers that are numbered and....


--- in case our allergies rage out of control we should be covered with our anti histamines.....

oops no longer in stock...

just ribbon...buttons.....and more

30 drawers to fill with all my little supplies!
The drawers actually pull out upright and swing out( by a hinge) flush with the cabinet but being as I don't have cute medicine bottles to store everything in we decided to turn the cabinet on their sides to make the drawers more usable.

Next find.....

A couple of weeks ago it was a little warmer.....upper 40s...

So we took a walk around the property

The kiddos loved being outside!

BTW we do have a son under that hat... he'll emerge again come summer...

I was a baby-wearing mama...

Thaddeus loved it!

And yes he is growing...

my coat that I wore up until the last with him inside, did not button with him on the outside (:

....Now back to our walk, we went on around to the barn

And I saw this....!!!

Now this....

I "found" it alright but I wasn't able to claim it!

I thought I could just set up a card table for electrical deliveries... hubby thought different (:

We went inside to get warm & dream a little(future office) and I found these in the metal scrap pile!

Old transformer boxes...

We removed the transformers and....



So now my project for today(while my babies are napping) is to fill all of these organizers(fun)....and to straighten my house(not fun). After yesterday of me basically just holding my head and a box of tissues for most of the day, it needs some serious attention.

What are you doing today?
