Saturday Night

Saturday night.  Home with husband. Creating. Heaven!

I constructed this with an empty Cheez-it box, a used dryer sheet and art supplies.
Fun FUN!

Shelf Of Little Things

Growing up, my mom always had a shelf of little things.
Using a type set drawer hung on the wall, my mom would fill the compartments with various treasures and trinkets.

As a young adult, I bought my own drawer and followed suit.
Originally, my drawer was natural wood.  In my mid 20's, I painted it orange.  In my 30's, it was chocolate brown.  Now in my 40's it finally occurred to me it didn't have to be a solid color.

Using only the paints I had (which was a mix of $.99 craft paint to lovely Golden liquid acrylic) I went for it.  I love it so much, I shan't be filling it back up with little things...for now.

Just in case you aren't familiar with a type set draw, they were used back in the olden days before computers, before typewriters.  The thin, flat drawers held all the type set used in printing.
