I have decided to play along with Pip's meme. I love Pip's posts. She is my craft lady idol. (Can you tell? I have stolen her :: 's in my title)
This weeks theme is 'On the Shelf'.
My original post was going to be about the treasures items that sit upon my Ikea cube however the battery in my camera has failed me. : (
Instead I will tell you of my grand shelf plan for my craft room. As you will know if you have followed me for a while....I have a button addiction....I am also a bit of a greenie...
I try to recycle and reuse as much as possible. We have little waste in this house. We have two big compost bins (the ones Tumbler ones - you need to check them out at your nearest Bunnings. They are fantastic), we recycle like there is no tomorrow, I try and steer away from harsh chemicals when I buy my cleaning products and not much of our rubbish goes into landfill.
I am also addicted to coffee. Mr. S (bless his heart) is kind and makes me one every morning so my lips hit the cup very soon after my feet have hit the bedroom floor.
So what do you get when you mix a button loving coffee addict with a recycling freak?
Coffee jars full of buttons. Red buttons, vintage buttons, childrens buttons, plastic buttons, wooden buttons....you name it...I've got 'em.
Similiar to the picture above I have them all lined up in my craft room, sadly on the floor....paitently awaiting Mr S to erect my crisp white Ikea shelf on the wall so I can line them all up and make a pretty crafty statement.
That's what I want on my shelf. Storage solution and work of art at the same time. Delightful if you ask me.
