... around the shelves. Here's the top of the shelves. In the black files are bits of card, paper and envelopes for card making or other craft work. In the corner is a Christmas bouquet and the odd wreath or two. Cones of wool stand at attention in front.
Perhaps I should give a tour around each of the sections in the Expedit Ikea bookcase. This one is reasonably tidy. Another little bit of Christmas stays out in the form of an angel and some more Christmas flowers. I've got my headdress ready for May time. Can you see Captain Scarlett in the background (DS's) and the wooden pussy cat in front (DD's)?
Behind the angel is this little chappie. Press his bottom and he falls head over heels for you!
Little piggy was a hand made present and I can't seem to throw rattles away. What's in the red box?
It's a dolly bobbin - a favourite of DH and DS. They're a bit too old for it now though. We may finish it sometime.
Little dog was also a present. Ooh there's all sorts in here. The slinky is great fun but it has to be stored somewhere.
You've seen these before.
Look now, these shelves may never look this tidy again. See what you can spot here.
This cigar box is from the junk shop and contains ...
... embroidery skeins.
And this box from the Charity Shop contains envelopes made from 'real tobacco leaves'.
Little bird rattles down his stick.
I seem to have spent half my life collecting and the other half is trying to get rid of all the stuff. Hmmm!
