No Play Today

No work building the play house today. My Christmas gift from David. It is a mahogany spice cabinet we found at the antique mall last weekend. I kind of knew he was going back to get it. I can't wait to load up the little drawers. I took some time to sort out the buttons my mother and grandmother gave me. I kept looking for specific buttons and now I will be able to find them easily. In the buttons I found some wooden beads that I could use for the necklaces my mother crocheted. I really like the look of these. I haven't been able to find beads I liked and will probably make some out of sculpy clay to get what I want. But the wooden beads will work for a few of them.

Still wishing for snow tonight but it isn't looking too promising. Hope you have a Merry Christmas.


  1. That cabinet is truly memorizing and what a beautiful gift! That crocheted necklace is lovely, and what a great way to add a nice touch to it by adding a bead. I wonder whether you can do that by knitting too? Ana Goncalves from the End of year Blog Comment Swap on Swap-bot. Have a really nice New Year.

  2. I REALLY like the crocheted necklace! So fun! AND, I'm jealous that you've got all your buttons sorted...I've been meaning to organize mine forever, it seems. Maybe it'll be a New Year's resolution of mine!

  3. What a gorgeous piece of furniture. I have something sort of similar in my house and I love to reorganize the little drawers.
