I picked up some wine box crates at our local wine store, Barley and Vine, for $5 each and brought them home to make something fun with. They are each so unique and possess such character.
I decided to redo a corner in our family room where I like to keep some of my “Favorites” so I cleared off the crowded black antique repainted desk of its clutter.
Then I stacked the crates and reorganized lots of my most loved thing.
I LOVE IT! It was easy and fun.
And now a little about me and what these shelves so dearly hold…
I love to read! My favorite book of all times is REBECCA by Daphne DuMarier. I have bunches of copies. This is my favorite OLD copy. Sometimes I open it just to smell the pages.
I totally enjoy watching movies over and over again…sometimes just to hear the story while I am busy doodling with my Sharpie Markers! Truth is I don’t have any idea how many times I have watched Rent but I can belt out every song.
I love mysterious ways of looking at our world including trying to read rune stones…which I keep in a special little heart box. They were a gift from my Goddaughter and I think they are beautiful.
I love creative ways of putting words to feelings about life and the journey and I am on…
The pictures are of my favorite people in the world…my two sons and almost stepdaughters, my niece and nephews and of course my Ryp and ME. Yes, I am one of my favorite people.
I bet you have a wine store near you that has leftover box crates waiting for you to come in. I say GO FOR IT!
Happy Creating and Upcycling and Loving (thing that are special starting with yourself!)
