Last week, I shared my storage on one side of my shelf unit, and nobody told me that had a nervous breakdown seeing all of that stuff on my shelves. So, I’ll take that to mean it’s okay to share the second half of the shelf unit this week!
When you’ve been blogging for almost four years, you kind of forget that not everyone who visits your blog was reading your blog when you began blogging. (We’re not going to talk about that I can’t remember what I was doing 30 minutes ago either.) Last week, a reader asked me if I had fabric or paper on the back wall of my shelves. My post about the fabric-backed shelves was about my third post evah!
I draped fabric over tension rods, so that I could easily change the backing if I tired of it. Of course, that was in 2008, and I still have the same fabric in the backs of the shelves, so I probably could have super glued it!
I always think my blog is just standing still until I go back and look at one of those first posts. I haven’t learned much, but it is apparent that I’ve learned a little bit. Looking at those early posts makes me cringe a little (ok, a lot!).
I spared you closeups of the family photos, but I do want to share one of them. 11 years ago, our daughter married a fireman. They traveled from the church to the reception in a fire truck. It was so much fun!
