Storage Solutions not from Ikea


I love my house, it's got charm and character in spades. However, it's a super old house and apparently they didn't have Ikea in 1880 because the storage options are crap. No closets anywhere, the only thing the house came with were a wall of built in book cases. We bought a huge wall closet but it's still not enough room, especially for me. It is genetically ingrained in me to own a lot of stuff and I have to get creative to find everything a place to call home.

So I filled the built in shelves in the living room with shoes, purses and artifacts from a life across three continents. It works. Putting six pairs of shoes on the dozen or so shelves, left room on the shoe organizer for six pairs that I took from the shoe shelf in the front hall. My hall is in the process of being redone (work has stalled at the tail-end because of Matt's hockey injury), so soon I will have a brand new hallway with less clutter than I ever imagined. And if whatever is on TV gets boring or gross (ie. the Bachelor kissing ) I can turn my eyes 27 degrees to the right or left and admire my shoes and purses on the shelves.

Value is a matter of getting a great deal of rolex replica sale what a person wants in a watch for a relatively low cost to the buyer. Variety, modern sizes, contemporary rolex replica sale watchmaking technologies, complications, and yes, undiscovered future classics, rank among the strengths of the current rolex replica sale preowned late model watch market. Don’t buy these watches because rolex replica sale you believe there’s a fortune to be made. In the future, certain of today’s “used models” will drop replica watches uk gavels to roars of applause, but that’s not the reason to seek them today. Forging one of six (or is it seven? or eight?) Rolex “Red Sub” dials is a mild challenge to skilled hands; creating a fake and functional rolex replica sale vertical trigger chronograph like the Jaeger-LeCoultre Amvox2 is nearly impossible.
