A picture of where I like to sit and read

Here is a shot of the corner of my living room where I love to sit and read. I can see the television if I want; I can view the patio if something interesting catches my eye and I can see my dining room which I think is so pretty.

Here is a picture of my dining room table for Spring. I need to figure out how to post more pictures with commentary like the rest of you do it. I'll get there - give me some time. Also, here is a picture of my kitchen junk drawer that I just added some pretty cherry drawer liner to. Of course I must figure out how to get this posted accurately, but you get the idea, right?? :)

My first blog pictures - can you tell?? :)

Love my new template!!!!

After much searching, I finally found a template that best reflects me. I love peaceful, serene and pretty and that is the feeling I get when I look at this template. I have much to do today so I best get started. I want to organize my craft supplies and pictures. I recently painted a very narrow (depth-wise) bookcase black and have filled it with empty baskets that I got for 40% off at Michael's. I want to get my pictures out of those photo boxes and into these baskets for easy retrieval, until I can get them into some of the pretty photo albums that I've purchased over the past year. I have the bookcase in the hallway outside of the kids bathroom. I have another wall adjacent to the bookcase that I painted red not too long ago. I want to fill my red wall with some special snapshots I like. I've already purchased various sizes of black frames with white mats. I will show you what it looks like when I've finished it. Storing photo's and albums is one of the most difficult things, I think. I don't really like the look of the boxes and albums take up so much room. Any ideas that you have found to work are welcome!!
