This project was the easiest. All I did was paint the back of each cubby. I added some scrapbook paper for interest and find some interesting things to go in there.
I left the log slice of art I did when I was in Mrs. Brown's 7th grade art class. One evening I spent a lot of time on the internet version of Hobby Lobby and found the mercury glass owl and the cast iron star looking thing from a giant's collection of jacks. I had the little tin boxes and the black and white kitten.
Because it was a telephone nook, I wanted an old fashioned telephone in there. I went to Amazon.com and searched 1920s phones. There were several types to choose from, but the candlestick phone was just right. The earpiece doesn't come off, but it is like a piece of sculpture. It has a nice weight and finish to it. I didn't want a working phone because we didn't have wiring in there.
To finish it off, I found my old autograph book and some little gift books from my sisters. I also put the card Geraldine gave me the last week of her life. It was about sisters. It doesn't make me sad to see this. I get a warm feeling in my heart. There is also the letter Terry sent to his mother and daddy when he was at Bible College. The subject of the letter was an introduction to me and how I was a very important person in his life. That letter makes me smile.
I still need to change the date on my phone!!!
Prayer for today: Jesus, thank You for good doctors who prescribe strong antibiotics. I'm feeling better and pray for my friends who are in all sorts of pain. I ask You to lead me the life I live today. Amen.
I forgot to add the close ups of each shelf. The reason the log art was important to me is that when I was 5 or 6 my daddy was a logger in the "Never Summer Mountains" near Grandby, Colorado. That is a slice from one of the logs.
