Happy Monday


I had a house full of company for the past week. Amber and her family as well as Rachael were in town. We had a wonderful visit and Beans learned to crawl while she was here! Today I have been cleaning up and doing many loads of laundry. I have also been browsing and found some very cool ideas. These adorable wooden birds were designed by Kristian Vedel in the 1950's. Their heads are separate and can be positioned to give the bird different works. Hey Rachael, do you thing Pete would like these?

I have been trying to figure out what kind of bookcases I want in my family room. There is one very long wall and I think I have settled on IKEA Expedit bookcases. I found this amazing site called The bookcases are so interesting. What do you think?


Here is my first installment of Expedit. It's the "kids corner" for the grandkids. I'm going back downstate in a couple of weeks and I'll get a couple more. I can't carry too many at one time in my little Subaru. I'm also going to paint the wall behind the bookcases a chianti red. I'd like to get the wall painted this week before company comes in on Friday.

  1. I bet Pete could make the birds with the wood he uses for his pipes- very cool! And that bookshelf is pretty crazy. I hope the books they used weren't very popular ones. :)
