Then I showed it here, during the move to a much smaller, regular sized room in my house, when my husband very politely refrained from making any comments about the amount of stuff I have. Phew!
Now, things are little more civilised in my space.
I actually thought I'd tidied really well before taking these photos,
but you can still see crap stashed under the bed! :)
- Second hand Ikea daybed, just in case the room is ever tidy enough to host a guest, from Ebay.
- Old kitchen side table from my husband's grandfather. The perfect size for my machines.
- Dresser from the side of the road (yay!). Holds yarn and other random knick knacks.
- Plate holder, which perfectly holds containers of things and patterns. It was from the 'as is' section of IKEA, only $39.
- Pigeon holes from under the house of my husband's other grandparents. They apparently are from a Qantas office and were in a lovely, shabby state when I first spied them. Unfortunately, Grandfather decided to clean them up and give them a new coat of horrible, dark stain before giving them to me, but they are still handy for things and really, it's the thought that counts.
- Low boy from my husband's grandparents. Apparently it was given to them for their engagement, just prior to the depression.
- Ikea Billy with books, more things and dressmaking fabric.
The walls could do with some more well considered styling. I love seeing the sewing areas that some people seem to effortlessly create, like Tania's cute little sewing nook here. But I do not have this gift. I have to think really hard and plan for a while to make things look nice, and even then, I don't always get it right.
- Quilting and bonnet fabric, scraps and patterns, which perfectly fit into these draws.
I hope you are making lots of mess at your machine today!
