Mosaic Monday - This Week

I was motivated last week to cleanup the storage room.  It has been on the To Do list for most of the summer.

I had some of supplies still stored from when I made lots of handmade paper from recycled paper. Three boxed of brochures, manuals, etc. hit the dust.  Now the remaining supplies like my instruction book, moulds and deckles and a few naturals inclusions remain. 

I can actually see the floor. The boxes on the right contain craft supplies which I can now remove easily and put away right away. I can easily access the chairs for classes. 

I am very happy.

It has been raining for the last couple of days.  The temperatures are much cooler than last week.  I know it's going to happen but a bit more summer would be nice.  I'm sure will have a bit more.

I bought myself a shirt last week.  I paid much more attention to the details this time.  Yellow is a favorite color.  The seams on the front for the buttons and button holes are completely finished and lay flat. No more ironing them flat.  I will wear this shirt open over a t shirt so insides will be visible.  The sleeves roll up and have a tie so it will be a good summer shirt as well as a long sleeved shirt in the winter.  It has a pocket.  I generally need a place to put sunglasses when I take then off so it will come in handy.
I made a couple of apple crisps in take away containers with apples from Mom's tree.

I had a friend over for tea and we shared the missing half of this container.  The other container headed out to a birthday party.


  1. Apple crisp was always my favorite dessert...served warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream! Yum! And I love your new shirt. I wear one with sleeves like that to hike in. So handy to roll up the sleeves if it gets warm. Hugs, Diane

  2. Oh apple crisp. I made that so often when I was younger and making desserts. So good with ice-cream. I like your new shirt. It looks comfortable. Sounds like you had a good week!

  3. Hello, I like the cute shirt. Your apple crisp sounds delicious. We are finally having some cooler weather. Enjoy your day and the week ahead!

  4. I never make fruit crisps as my other half prefers crumbles. Well done for working on your to do list, it always makes me feel better when my craft room is tidy. Thanks for sharing your week's activities with us on Mosaic Monday, enjoy the rest of the week.

  5. I've watched my daughter for the last three weeks clean out her storage room, a room large enough to finish in to a movie room eventually. With 3 little girls there was a lot of stuff, so cleaning storage rooms seems to the thing to do these days. Such a good feeling to get rid of stuff. I am trying to get my craft area and family room downstairs cleaned so that I can have the carpet cleaned. How do we end up with so much stuff and especially as crafters we do accumulate stuff. Crisp looks pretty delicious.

  6. Love apple crisps -- and it is getting just about time for them (if only it would cool down some).... The shirt is great -- I love 'over-shirts' in summer temps -- which is most of my year, since we spend the winter in Florida. Even when it is as hot as it has been here lately, I'll wear a shirt like this because places are so darn over-airconditioned, I can freeze in a shop or restaurant.

  7. I like your shirt and can imagine that it will be perfect over a Tshirt - perhaps a stripy one!


Thanks for visiting. I love to read your comments.
