Oh boy is it blazing hot today! Nearly makes me miss winter... wait, nope, the heat is better than freezing rain and three feet of snow! Although there is such a thing as too hot... like, when the air is steamy from the heat and just sitting on a park bench makes you sweat (and I don't mean sweat as in “glistening"... I mean SWEAT). On a brighter note, though, I was able to spend most (ok, all but an hour watering my flowers) of my day inside. I spruced up my crafting room a bit and tweaked what I think of as my 'red' zone- I collect 1950s red kitchen collectables and cherries, which I corraled in one of the corner of my crafting room.
This picture shows a three tier stand I found at an auction- nobody seemed to want it but I sure did- it was the perfect red color! I keep photo boxes on the shelves and my cherry bread box on top. I LOVE that bread box, even though it was in pretty bad shape: it was missing the knob when I spotted it but I rigged together a system using a glass knob and piece of plastic on the inside of the door to keep it closed.
Hiding behind the Pyrex dishes and cleanser bottle is a milk glass plate with cherries painted on it. I happened across this plate at our local flea market- the lady only had one, but one was all I really needed: after all how many sets of dishes can I possibly collect? (P.S. don't answer that- I'm sure no good can come from any response!)
