when we found my writing desk at that little thrift shop,
we also picked up this dandy chocolate brown piece.
it has shelves inside the little door & is topped by a drawer.
looks like a short & fat school locker.
very practical. very peculiar. very fab.
we used the top drawer to hide away some knitting supplies.
am I the only one who gets really excited about an empty drawer?
something about having unused space & the potential to organize better...
it is quite a thrill for me.
ever ask yourself what you would do with another drawer in your house? i do.
right now our home only has a handful of drawers, so storage space is precious & dreams are big. when I do the dishes, I often stand at the sink & contemplate this matter.
I dream up how to best compartmentalize my things.
I fantasize about cleaning out, filling up & arranging away.
so far my imaginary extra drawer has been filled with...
tupperware & lids
gloves & mittens
prep for grant's lunches
un-framed photos
handy glass jars & bottles
swimming suits
notes & souvenirs from grant
magazine clippings
dry ingredients for chocolate chip cookies
envelopes & stationery
coloring books, word searches, crossword puzzles
my favorite blanket
vitamin bottles
grocery list, coupons, pen & post-its
old school papers
extra gum, chapstick, & hand lotion
everything separated + coordinated, & all in one place.
perfect.

coloring books?! my favorite! let me know when you have a drawer full, and i'm visiting.

ps: the word i had to "verify" for this comment was "nessessa." it made me laugh. but then, they usually do.

Sounds like the extra drawer would be filled with such perfect things! Storage space always feels at a premium to me, and I hope that someday I have enough :)

Especially food. My favorite thing to do is sit around a table, lingering over a long meal with good conversation. I live with my husband and our 2 littles. We like blizzards, thrifting, grammar, guacamole, cheerful hearts, nice manners, good movies, and making simple, real, nutrient-dense food.
