Busy Sunday organizing miniatures

Look it is clean and organized! How long will it last? The material on the far right side needs to be done yet. You can't see that part of the closet in this picture. I sorted all the accesorries into plastic compartment containers. Kitchen, bathroom, misc., etc. I sorted out a few things into boxes that go into the projects that I am working on now. Cabin and Aunt Gerties Farmhouse (Bellingham). I forgot about some of the things that I have so it was a nice surprise to find them. I have a few things in a box in the basement to sort out yet into the right containers. Then they will be up here with the rest. I also sorted some of my material, lace and ribbon. I still have to go through my Christmas material, etc. I don't have much of that though. On the floor in front of the closet is a box of book (novels). a few pieces of material that I won't use, etc that I will drop off at Good Will. I have alot of miniature magazine on the secon shelf up htat I might give away or packed away. That is the problem as I do go through them once in awhile, but how many times can you read them. The next shelf over I have some book written by Beverly Lewis. I have all the ones that she has written. I am going to go through those and put them into series and drop them off at a shelter or somewhere where someone else will enjoy them. But I have to see if I got all of them back from my sister yet. They are all written in 3-4 book series. All about the Amish. Fiction but she grew up in Amish area and have alot of Amish facts. I love the books. A new one comes out this week. Starting with her very first book is good though as they are more about the older Amish. Each series becomes more modern.  This isn't a book review, just got carried away. I also put all my smaller flowers into 2 dresser drawers. Longer stems in one and shorter stems in another. I had cut all the stems down though as they are silk flowers and I don't need all the stem length. I kept some leaves as I might be able to use those.
I also picked up material that I am planning on using in my contribution for the Butterfly Project. Hopefully what I plan will work out. You can see what this is about at my blog a few posts ago.
Well supper is ready. Guess I will go eat.
I hope everyone had a good weekend. Hugs, Teresa
