Moving Things Around




When I decided to put up a mirror in my dining room, I had to take down my wire shelf with all the blue and white dishes. I really like the wire shelf, so I decided to put it up in the kitchen. In order to accomplish this I took down the wooden shelves that were there. Then mounted the wire shelf. I tried to incorporate some of the things I had on the wooden shelves with the blue and white. I had to put the shelf a little higher than I would like due to the fact that the thermostat was on that wall. So I added some hooks to the bottom shelf and hung my little creamers down there. Do you think it looks OK?

I really like how it all looks. I Incorporated some things that had been on the wooden shelves. I love the bluebird platters that I bought on e-bay. Also, I kept the cookbooks and the tray that my Mom had painted over 35 years ago. Also several gifts from friends such as the butter warmer (on the second shelf to the right) The Droste box and the egg cups from my same friends' Mother. There are a lot memories displayed on those shelves! Some of the pieces were garage sale finds, such as the canisters that I got for $10.00 and the blue cabbage plate. Also some pieces I picked up at the thrift store and Marshall's.

Hi Dear Friend,

Isn't nice how things that you have had for a while look all spiffy and brand new when you move them around with different collectables? I love your "blue-do". Great job. You go Girlfriend!

Your collection is fantastic. What a wonderful wire rack. I like the little creamers hanging as it displays them so well. Is that a little bluebird on the one on the left? Good job!

Just beautiful! I love the morror in the DR and the wire shelf looks great in the kitchen. I love the hooks on the bottom to hold you little pitchers. It looks so cute. Your whole house is turning out gorgeous. You've put in a lot of work, but it sure is worth it. Again, just beautiful! You've done a great job.

Rubik's Cube houses. I love 'em. Folks have asked me when I am going to move such and such. Oh, as soon as I move X, so that I can move Y, so that I can move Z, so that I can start to move such and such.

But your "cube" is really beautiful. Thank you for sharing.
