Thanks for all your lovely words about my shelves! It's only one piece of furniture - infinitesimal in the scheme of things - but it occurred to me today as I was wandering about the house picking up toys for the nth time, that it stands for a little more. Like Mae said in the comments, having a space (or even just a shelf) of your own can also represent a small slice of control. If I put something on my shelf, there's a good chance it's going to stay there. Which, at this point in my life, feels like absolute gold!
I got to play in here for a while this afternoon, and finished up these three monkeys. Hear no evil, see no evil and speak no evil (aka George, Chesney and Flanagan) are for a wholesale order. For now, though, there are 4 dolls, a bag of stuffing and the series 3 DVD of Black Books calling my name. Night (or morning, as the case may be), all! xo
