Good Deals...Rearranging...and more...



Well, I decided this afternoon/early evening that I wanted to re arrange my kitchen.

Oh boy!


I had an idea to use those small storage cube shelvings..the 3 block shelves that you can build yourself and find at places like KMart....
Anyhow..I had been thinking that if I layed the shelving unit on it's side I'd have a nearly 32 inch long 3 section cubby, that would stand 11 1/2 inches tall...and be able to slide up against the wall.
And would be a good thing to store all of my cookbooks neatly in an organized manner on my kitchen counter.(because for me, if an item is out of sight/it becomes out of mind and does not get noticed or used) So this brings my cookbook collection back into use.

And it works! On top of the shelf unit I have enough room to put a few little containers of vining plants that will hang down just a wee bit over the books and look whimsical...and to display some tiny little cute items for decor.

So far the new look is turning out nicely. I know that I'll wind up clearing out a few cookbooks that I no longer want. (looks like I'll have some nice things to do RAOK things with..grins)

Well, about the good deal...
I tend to buy some of my skirts..the denim cargo pocket skirts...from a company called Roamans.
Anyhow..this afternoon I discovered a division of the company called OneStopPlus.com
and upon looking around...discovered that they had a sale on a nice looking dark denim 6 gore skirt...for just $6.88!!! (can't buy the fabric for that hardly)...so I ordered 4 of the skirts and 1 of my normal style.
Anyhow..thought I'd share the info with those of you that like a nice denim skirt..and also like a good deal...smiles.
---------------
Well, I do hope that you all are having a really good weekend and enjoying time with family.
We are. A nice, sort of slow weekend.

Have a great weekend!

Okay, ready to come here and do my kitchen? I really need help. Thanks for the uplifting comments you have been giving. If it wasn't for friends like you I honestly believe I would lose it. It just helps knowing I have friends who are there for me. Last night was hard for me, I carried the Army flag and they announced that my son had just left and I was riding in honour of him, The whole place stood up and clapped when I made my entrance. I just cried and cried. Honestly, I could smell his colgne while riding. Hope you and yours are enjoying your weekend.

Hi Tina!

I found your blog via a link on Jewels' blog. You have an absolutely lovely blog too! Such talented ladies!
I am in the process of reading your latest magazine, and the back issues too.
I just wanted to let you know I stopped by, and your kitchen re-arranging sounds exciting!
