Fun With Shelving

Hee-hee! How do you like that title? Does it remind you of 5th grade film time?

The other day, I was sick unto death of unpacking stuff like this so I decided to have a little fun with my shabby book case! Top shelf

Second shelf

3rd shelf and evidently my favorite. ☺

Another peek at the bottom. It's Very hard to get a full shot of the book case or get good shots of the individual shelves because they are so deep that they cast shadows...
I have my large pfaltzgraff pieces gathered on top.

For those to you who are new to my blog, this Rachel Ashwell Shabby Chic book case came to me via the Goodwill- $30.00! The price was so low because there is damage at the top that will be repaired (some great day) by one of the handy men in my life!
I love to play around with these shelves. I'll probably change them up more and more as the days go by! Every time I walk by, I have to tweak!
Today, I begin a new tradition. Just one grandchild comes over each week for the afternoon/evening to have alone time with us. Since Elizabeth (6) is the eldest, we are starting with her. She wants me to teach her how to make a rag wreath so we will have girly craft time and make a tiny one for her room. Yikes! I need to go organize the craft room!

Thanks for coming by!

Good idea doing one grandchild at a time. Gives them more of your attention, chick....

Everything is looking like it is coming together! I think that is a great idea to have a one on one with each child. That could be a whole new Post idea for you ?? oxoxo, Miss Diane

Your shabby shelf is looking great Holly. I'm still jealous that it's yours and not mine :)

Isn't is wonderful to get all your pretty things unpacked and put in their place? Sure makes a home feel more like a home when it's all done. And there's nothing better than being surrounded by all of your favorite things again.
