Monday Stuff On the Way to Other Stuff: Off to Michigan

 Packing for a quick trip to Michigan to check on The Mama. Daughter #2 is going along for the ride; we'll get some work done (including buying more handkerchiefs for the Hanky Panky kits), go out to eat, and do the tourist bit, as well. Meanwhile:

Five ways to spend less and reduce clutter, courtesy of Apartment Therapy.

A faux shell chandelier...made out of wax paper! (Beautiful, Decorating Diva's Diary.)

Decorating with pallets... like this interesting windowed table. Take a look further in the post, and there's a link to a pallet shelf. I'm even thinking this would make a great coldframe! Thanks, Marty's Musings.

An Oakland, CA art museum gets hit twice -- can you help find the burglars?

Remember the discovered-in-Goodwill painting I told you about? It went for $11,205.00. Plus shipping. 

I wish life (and work) would go a bit more smoothly. At least it's getting done, albeit longer than I'd planned. (Notice the posting time on this? In case you're wondering, it's nearly 2:30 a.m.) But it's getting done -- and I'll be soon on the way to Chicago.

Have a great week.
