I keep my camera in the bag I take everywhere. The bag that holds Target brand Benadryl and Epi pens for peanut allergy emergencies. The one that holds sanitary hand wipes, hand lotion, an issue of Saveur magazine, ibuprofen, my sunglasses, a glass jar of water, liquid hand sanitizer and baby wipes, which even without a baby at the current moment, I find indispensable when on the run. All of the essentials I never leave the house without. So when I found my camera in there yesterday, I was quite surprised. (Below, tools of the trade. I can't, for the life of me, cut a straight line. I'd love a huge paper cutter someday!)
Apparently, it was in there the entire time. I looked nearly six days for it, including three times in that very bag where I keep it, and it was in there the whole time?
I don't believe it.
I'm blaming it on the camera fairies. They're playing tricks on me. And, it has nothing, absolutely nothing to do with my own mind. The funny thing is, when my sister, Sara, took my kids home with her last week, I quickly checked the bag one last time before she left with it. I checked it right in front of her, and it was.not.in.there.
But, what do you know? I found it at last and that's all that matters! (I'm not losing my mind. I'm really not. No. Really. I'm not. Okay, I totally am.)
This is the locker cupboard that I've been working on. I have no idea if there is a technical name for this thing but it's been fun to work on. I still need to put some lace or ribbon on the shelf edges but I am in love with this 70's wallpaper. It's my favorite I've found so far. I love this color combination, sort of an olive green and light turquoise mix.
If the roll had been larger, I would have done an accent wall in it, I love it so much. But I'll settle for shelves in lockers.
I've unloaded two large plastic totes of linens in here so far and there is still room to cram more. I'm not worrying about getting everything too organized just yet. I'm only concerned with grouping like-items together at this point. Hankies, doilies, crocheted potholders, linens of various sizes, pillow cases, sheets, scarves, antique baby clothes, pillow shams, and tablecloths. It feels so good to be getting this done. I need to organize all of my lace, ribbon and zippers, too. So I need to get another locker. (Below, if you pretend you don't see all the clutter in the picture, I'll keep pretending it's not there.)
I have a few more single-door styles in the basement but they need a bit of work. I know at least one needs to be painted. Lockers/metal cupboards are one of those things I can't resist when I find them at sales or at the local dump. I always grab them. If they're white or light in color.
I passed on a really great wardrobe style one yesterday because it was dark brown because I'm thinking I have enough paint projects right now!
