Pipe Dreams

The other day, I walked out side to discover that my Beautygirl had been constructing......something.... Out of old pvc pipes. It was quite tall and very interesting.

Leave it to a young mind to find a way to enjoy a pile of unused pipes.
Ahh to be young, when everything has a new purpose.

Silver Lining

Every now and then, there truly is a silver lining to the dark clouds.

We were having a monsoon storm roll into Arizona, and I saw a the phrase "silver lining" right there in front of me in living color.

It was beautiful. I thought I'd share.

Organize a little girls room.....

This is the never ending project...."Lets organize your room"

My Beautygirl wants to keep absolutely everything that has ever passed through her hands. So we are working on a system to make her room more organized. (I can always dream)

This is the dresser. It is two small file cabinets that are metal.

We have attached tags made out of those lanolin samples. (No I did not steal them. I got them when I was working on a project for school.) A little magnet is glued to the back.

Hopefully, the tags will help the clothes go into the right home.

Also, we took down the huge rod in the closet.
It was warped in the middle. Instead we hung two towel rods from Ikea. We just placed them upside-down and screwed them into the wood shelf.

This way we could divide and conquer her stuff. School outfits on one side. Dresses, coats, etc... on the other.

On the top shelf, there are a few plastic file cubes. Of course we are not hanging files in them. One houses extra blankets and bedding. The other is home to dress-up clothes.

We did install a belt thingy...to hang the belts from.

We have a long way to go. We already did under-the-bed storage, which went really well. (If you want to see the under-the-bed storage, look for the label "luggage".)

So... What do you think?
