The Kitchen Mantel Piece/ Dumping Ground
It's quite a lot for one little mantel piece to take isn't it?
I'm wondering whether I could draw some parallels between our lives, my state of mind and this mantel piece in our kitchen.
For starters, it's not even properly fixed into place yet - hence the rather stylish holes around the edges.
Sometimes I get an urge and it all gets cleared and dusted and prettified... then gradually the clutter manages to move in again. There is a sort of accidental bird/animal theme going on at the moment, with a Coco-made parrot, some paper plates made into peacocks (I did one and Coco did one, mines' at the front... shows what I thought of her effort)!
Pens in the pot on the rights with carved birds on, a card bird on the flowers, flying duck magnets on the cast iron.
And a giraffe, and a tiger puppet made an the imagination station in the V&A (which is fast becoming one of my favourite London Museums to visit with kids) and butterflies of course.
Along with the normal selection of pictures and very important documents that are shoved up there. Oh and things to be fixed, like the mini rolling pin.
So there you have it.
Maybe I'll get around to clearing it up tomorrow.
Still reading? Well here are some photos of the mantel piece from earlier in the month. And I guess, if your asking, no, I don't really have a life, but I do have a camera and I like to use it.
