is an after-shot. There is no before shot. This is so, soooo intentional.
Last weekend, the hubs and I tackled the disgrace/humiliation of our storage room.
Imagine, if you will, just pulling seasonal decor out and down from an already full storage room, with no regard to what is around it, or behind it, or on the wall. Or the floor. Or being able to close the door.
Two words, here:
I know you don't care, but we care that we can now walk in the storage room and find our crap. We care big time.
Anyhow, it was kinda cool looking through old crap in there. Saw stuff I haven't thought of in years.
Remember when I made those dominoes last last summer? Holy cow. So that's where they went.
And then I had an idea. An epiphany, if you will. Oversized dominoes? That time I made those massive dice?
Are you thinking what I'm thinking, Pinky?
("Sure, Brain, but how are we going to find chaps our size?")
This calls for a "Gaming" mantel! Ooooh yeee-ah. Let's get it on.
In a gaming sense, of course.
You know what this mantel-scape needs? "A large poster of Atlantic City." (name that movie)
It needs a nod to Scrabble. Not that I play Scrabble, because I don't. So if you do, don't judge these craptastic Scrabble pieces I slapped out, 'mkay.
And you know? Last but not least, we need a nod to Monopoly. Because I finally have kids old enough to play that game with me. And they no longer attempt to purchase Jail or Free Parking.
It's fun now, 's what I'm saying.
Someone borrowed one of my die. I agree it's a weird thing to borrow. Long story.
I keep rearranging stuff up here. It's like a game all on its own.
