Here is a pic of the wood storage shelf during the warm months (craft supplies storage boxes) along with the wood stove.  I knew there was a reason for not throwing away that giant tea cup.

Well, I'm trying something new.  When I finish a mini scrapbook album I have to find it a new home.  This one, "Gift of a Secret Garden", is going to find itself going to a member of the yahoo IOCSA group.  First I have to share it here.  It is a paper bag style album.  Love the closure which is a jewerly hitch style clasp combined with chain.  75% complete with the sister album.  That two will find a new home after I post some pics here.
