Monday Blues and Repurposing
Greetings to one and all. Monday is a busy day around here since Zack has baseball practice immediately after school. When practice ended after 5 pm, I had to take him to adjust his glasses and his backup pair -- somehow basketballs and volleyballs always find their way straight to his face.
I thought I would share with you something blue and items that have been repurposed. This is a wooden blue bed tray that Sam bought some time back. He is always coming home with something.
It has pretty engraving on the top. I just had it propped up for display as I really didn't have any place to put it.
I bought this leather and suede container for storing yarn (I have yarn coming out of every nook and cranny of this place).
So ... I decided to take the tray and place it on top of the yarn container, and voila, I have a nice little side table for the tv room.
Yusef says that when Mother's Day rolls around, he will use the tray to serve me breakfast in bed.

I printed these cards from the giftofkindness website and use them quite often at school to spread a little joy. I place them inside a nice card with quotes or stick them to a little chocolate bar and anonymously spread them around. (I am always grateful for the gift of kindness.)

Best wishes for your Tuesday! Tammy
