Alack! Alack!

That’s a little ode to Romeo and Juliet for ya. Again with having to explain the titles. Guess I’d better not quit my day job. Back to the title…I bought Ikea’s Lack shelves (noooowwww you get it) several months ago, and I finally got hubby to hang them up.

My husband has no comprehension of “good light” and “prime picture time”, so he decided to hang these at night. Great. Nothing my Light Scoop couldn’t take care of! I then remained silent (it’s a marriage saver) while he focused (intently) on the non-word directions.

And because I do have a comprehension of good light, I waited until the next day to take pictures. Thankfully, I didn’t have to purchase anything to decorate it. I started by typing up one of my favorite quotes and framing it. Aptly enough, it has a perfect home right in front of my sewing chair. A little encouragement always helps.

I came dangerously close to going out to buy some storage boxes, but then I remembered that I had these babies. Pretty, no? No. GoodWill for $1.99 last year. Not bad.

Spray paint. How would we live without it? And HomeGoods. Thank you for the pink bowl, HG. It had me at hello.

And here it is all together. If this space doesn’t make me get better at sewing, nothing will. Seriously. Nothing.
