The first order of business this week was to set up my project workspace. For this, I chose the dining room table. Over the past 2 years, our dining room table has served as a safe haven, out of reach of our ADORABLE grandson, Noah now 2 1/2 years old. It’s been the place we've put photos pulled out from albums in the hutch, momentos from vacations, school work and any other fragile item for which there is no obvious good spot in the house. That put the remote control helicopters right next to my mother’s old English bone china potpourri pot, just recently handed down as my folks are downsizing. Noah is now fully capable of pulling out a chair and helping himself to whatever is on the table, so the timing is right to dig in and find homes for everything in those piles.
Here are the before and after photo’s of this effort. Sorry the helicopters were apparently skimmed off the top of the pile before the first picture was taken.
