Books

Put up a small bookshelf today. I'm using scrap wood for everything. This piece I think was once part of one of the walls in the kitchen. It was painted white with a sort of red residue underneath which I had to strip off but it was just the right width for the shelf I wanted so... Anyway, there are now books in my room. Much better!

The books currently on my shelf. It's a bit of a mix of books I like to read, books I'd like to read and books I probably ought to read, and some that I figure I might enjoy on a rainy day. I have more books than this but they are stored away in the shed or on other people's bookshelves and occasionally I will do a big switch around and my bookshelf will then look entirely different. Tolkien stays, though.

More shelves! I'm so industrious today!

Excuse the quality. It's nighttime and the ipad already does crappy photo quality. Also, more books. I had forgotten I had these as they are in rather bad shape and I had given them a corner to themselves. Now they have a new corner! The hair mousse is currently acting as a book-end! Also, the small chest looks kind of distorted in this photo. (There is more nail polish and nail care stuff inside the chest.)

Over my dresser/desk (when my computer returns). Not sure what exactly is going on that shelf. I have more folders than that. (And yes, that used to be a folder for The Legend of Zelda, second world.) The big basket of yarn must stay there (as I mentioned in a previous post, my yarn box can hardly close..) but I must find (or make) somewhere for the other. That's the most current current crocheting project so I shouldn't hide it too far away or it really never will get done.

Small shelf for knick-knacks and whatever I think I'll need beside my bed that shouldn't clutter up the tiny night table. Those little figures follow me around. I think I remember where I've got two of them from but the rest? It seems they've just appeared and joined the collection over the years. Very strange.
