Hey! The first one worked! Let's try for #2!! :D

This is what I was up to today, before getting on-line:

I decided to clean out the green mostrosity bookcase (well, at least the top part...the bookcase part) in the dining room. I'm going to have to take all the books out anyway when we get new carpeting. Incidentally, the carpet place called and the company has JUST discontinued the carpet we liked! >:( They did say they had some very similar to the one we chose, though. We'll just have to go back down and check them out.

Anyways....my husband needs a place to store all of his books and that bookcase hasn't been cleaned out/organized in years. I took one set of encyclopedias (thank you, Jimminy Cricket!) out...the oldest one. I haven't used either in years. I used them a lot in college and HS. I boxed it up and took it in 2 boxes up to the attic. I also took 3 other boxes full of books up there. Now, DH has a whole shelf and a 1/2!!! :) He's going to be surprised when he comes home!

I'm also getting plexi-glass to cover the openings and keep thing from getting dusty and dirty in there. I'm also putting my cute little Longaberger Tree Trimming baskets to good use...putting the thread and needles and clippers and tweezers in them that used to be all over one shelf!

While I cleaned, I actually found cash I didn't know I had in two places....$95.00!!! :D ALRIGHT!!! FREE money!!! Oh...and I found a penny. I added it to my Coke bottle full of them. It's almost full...it's at the top of the bottle "swell". When it's full....I'm going to take it to the bank and have the machine count it! And...I'll take pictures and scrapbook it, too! ;)

It looks so nice now that it's done and organized! I wish I'd taken a "before" picture...like I do when I clean major messes!

i definitely want to get bookcases that have glass on the front of them, it helps with the dust so much!

I was glad I took a picture of it, too! It really helped when I had to pack it all away for the new carpeting and then put it all back out a week later!
