*****For something on a different topic, I bought new shoes! Now for most people, women in particular, buying new shoes wouldn't be such a reason to jump ecstatically up and down, but before I bought these, the only black somewhat-dressy shoes I owned were some clunky thick-healed velcro-fastened things. They were in style when I bought them10 years ago, I swear! My stylish aunty H helped my pick them out. But I've been saying for the past SIX years that I need new black shoes. I hated the ones I had. They didn't look good with skirts at all. And what prevented me from buying new ones? Just my tiny little fear of spending money. I think I need counselling for that. The shoes were only $40. I love my new shoes! Next post, I'll show you something I found on clearance at the hospital gift shop yesterday...a friend for Jasper!

More Strange Shelves
Happy St. Patrick's Day! Neither my clothing or this post contain much green...mostly because I forgot. I have finally decorated something purposefully in my house. Before we got the garage door opener, this little weird shelf next to the front door just collected junk from every time we walked inside. So, I decided to put something there on purpose to keep that from happening. We have a couple of other shelves that are difficult to decorate and don't make sense. There's this one at the top of the stairs that will be pretty once I figure out what to put on it. It's about waist-height when standing at the top of the stairs, so JK will be able to reach it. But what has me almost as stumped as the fireplace shelf-thing is this half-wall between the kitchen and living room. It collects almost as much junk as the kitchen counter does! Any ideas what I should put on it? I don't want a lot, just enough to prevent the junk from accumulating. I went to take an updated picture of it today, but the kitchen is an absolute disaster right now from four days of KD being sick and me feeling not so great. We actually spent all of yesterday in the emergency room to find the cause of the abdominal pain that KD has been suffering from since Friday night. He's feeling a bit better now, but they still don't know what the problem is. More tests and stuff tomorrow! Thanks for everyone who provided suggestions about my last post. I'm letting the ideas percolate in my head and I hope to have a solution soon!
