Fabric Cubes R Cat’s Meow
Wanting to take a picture of the rearranged ‘spring’ tea table, I placed a couple of the small fabric cubes from the bathroom to fill the lonely cookbook shelf. Yes, there’s only one but I do have a couple more — somewhere . . .
Now, since I really don’t need that much space for cookbooks & I’m humming & hawing about what to put there [too close to dogs for dishes] I figured they’d be perfect for the kitchen linens now crammed in one of the drawers. I could use that baby for pot lids.
Again for the picture, I put my little collection of spice containers on the bottom shelf. They fit nice & I like the variety of glass colours — similar to the perpendicular project table. It seems kinda weird to me to keep spices so close to the floor — what do you think? For now . . .
Of course, while in the $ Store to get replacement cubes, lots of other things catch my eye. The blue/ beige cubes are $3.50 & have sturdy walls — the bottoms are simply fabric with a zipper so I don’t want to use them for glass.
But the pretty turquoise ones, obviously lighter, are only $1.50. And since I’m finding more things than simply glass that need to be ‘hidden from view’, I picked up a few for the project table. I’m pretty impressed — they actually have a sturdy covered piece of cardboard for the bottom & the walls are not bad. And they’re pretty.
I also borrowed a couple of the Martha Stewart turquoise cubes from my bedroom for the brass bookshelf under the table. They fit perfectly & co-ordinate nicely with the ivory/beige or slightly brighter turquoise of my other containers.
Poor Pardus — it must seem to him that every time he comes to the window, things are changed around. When I added the little blossoms from the laurel hedges, he went straight to them, rubbed his head on them, THEN came to me for his greeting. I think Pardus approves.
In one of my shots, most of the table was in shadows but I like the artistic look of Pardus & the stained glass ballerina.
Aren’t Pardus’s little ears cute? And, hey, the microwave shadow hides his fat butt. 😛
The ballerina’s yellow outfit is made of iridescent glass so it reflects brighter. I love it!
Too bad the ugly fiberglass covering on the porch shows through — hmmm, maybe that should be my next window project.
