Floating Shelves For Display



I've finally gotten around to sharing a project that we did last summer. Dr. T installed floating shelves in our dining area so I can display some of the things I collect. If you've followed me very long, you know that I love to collect teapots. I needed a spot to have them out so I can see them regularly. THEY BRING ME JOY!!

The first step is installing the brackets for the shelves to slide onto.


Tip: Always hold a handheld vacuum under any drill. It makes for easy cleanup.
I am always the official holder of the vacuum. 


Each shelf slides onto the brackets.


I love the look of floating shelves.

The last step is to fill them with whatever brings you joy!!




 I have plans for a small cabinet under the shelves instead of the old school desk.
Until I find just what I want, the desk will stay.

It's the coziest of corners!!


I ordered these shelves from Wayfair.

Peak of the Week 6-3-20



What a week it has been. I know you are all exhausted with the sadness that we see in our country right now!! I'm trying to stay off social media as much as possible, but it is a way of life for me to connect with others and so I can't completely look away!! 

It is Wednesday, the Peak of the Week, so that means I'm sharing things piquing my interest right now! I hope you find them intriguing as well!!

BSF Kids- Bible Study Fellowship has a Youtube channel now!! If you have grandkids visiting or staying with you, you may want to subscribe to this channel. There are very many videos up yet, but keep checking back!!

I saw this on Facebook and thought it would be great to hang in a classroom. If you struggle with remembering the difference maybe print this out and put it near your screen. I don't like to critique peoples' grammar online. I have made so many mistakes over the years whether they be verbal typos, typos, or just not really thinking at the time. I think this is a great reminder!!!


21 Vinaigrette Recipes- It's salad season! Try one of these vinaigrettes and let me know what you think!!

Anti-Racism Resources- This is a great resource!! We all need to educate ourselves on this matter. Hopefully, you can find a starting place here!!


Segregation Along Highway Lines- I pledged on my Instagram and Facebook accounts on Sunday that I am going to educate myself about systemic racism in this country. I had no idea that our highway system was sometimes used in segregation. If you google this topic many articles come up. I liked this one because it is an educational thesis from a graduate program. It is factual without dispute. 

Light and Tripod
It can be ordered HERE.
Someone asked me yesterday about my tripod that I use for blogging and to get family pictures when we all want to be in the shot. This is a good price at just over $100.00, and it has held up well.

Iron Fish- I am still suffering from low iron. I heard about these iron fish on a podcast recently. I'm trying to be creative with different ways to get iron back into my body. Besides cooking in a cast-iron skillet, I've been boiling my water with these fish to give myself a little extra!!

It can be purchased HERE.

How to snooze someone on Facebook. I've SNOOZED some people on Facebook this week. I love these people, but don't love what they are sharing right now. Everyone is entitled to their opinion, but some people are sharing articles and are not reading them. They are simply sharing a Headline that fits their narrative. Those kinds of actions really bother me!!! Click HERE to learn how to SNOOZE someone. Their posts will not appear on your feed for 30 days. It might save a friendship!!


What I'm Reading- The Matchmaker by Elin Hildebrand 
                                You'll Get Through This by Max Lucado

What I'm Watching- Waco on Netflix
                                  Pandemic on Amazon- We just finished this. 
                                  Lot's of trash TV!!

What I'm focusing on- Just finished organizing our closet. It is a fairly small closet so I think I have 
                                     some solutions. I'm working on a post about it!!

What's piquing your interest today? I'd love to hear!!
