I finally finished painting on Friday and waited as long as I could for the paint to dry. It's still a bit soft but I decided to go ahead and start putting everything away, the pile of boxes in the ajoining living room were driving me mad.
I had a couple of vintage suitcases in the loft so I used them to store quilt wadding, toy stuffing etc
I used the plate rack to store papers and cardstock, they just fit in, the folder has some stamps. There are a few sewing books and my most recent Somerset Studio magazines. The hat box has my wool and crocheting hooks, I don't have much because I am learning and I am quite rubbish at it.
There are buttons, odd embellishments, glue sticks etc in my tins but as yet most of them are empty, they will fill up over time no doubt
The old box in the next photograph is full of hand made tatting, a gift from one of the older WI ladies, she thought I would be able to use it in a project. It was a gift to her from the husband of a friend who died. There is quite a lot of it and I love the old box it was kept in.
