Cleaning and Consolidating

When our renovations first started I suddenly had to find a new place for lots of things. Some stuff was squashed into cupboards, more stuff went on top of cupboards. Other stuff went out to the small shed and then there was stuff that I really didn't know what to do with.

I've made a policy... Take a photo and get rid of it! That works for some things - like this rug that I made when Annelise was a baby. I have carried the rug around for years and it has hung in our 'store room' for all that time. This rug was laying around, as rugs do, getting in the way. So, finally, I have taken a photo of it and it is going to a better place - I don't need to know where.

I have been collecting tissue boxes for quite some time (maybe years) with the aim of building a cubby house. Reuben and I have quietly stashed the empty tissue boxes. We didn't enlist the help of friends (probably should have) but just waited for the right moment when we would have enough. Well that moment didn't have a chance to come. We needed to clear out the room downstairs so that the reno's could start. Out came the tissue boxes and Reuben made what he could with the small stash.

Here it is... The Tower of Rowan.
