Storage solution ...

Yesterday, my girls were napping so it was magazine sorting time again. My Happy Girl woke up in the midst of my organization and I left the pile on the table. I keep the magazines I want far away from them because they will be in shreds in no time, but I let them look (at least until the shredding started). It seems they may have a thing for decorating.

Anyway, I thought I'd share where I keep the mess of toys in our living room. The huge basket was once a bed to my precious Sally who passed away almost 2 years ago. We got rid of the bedding but kept the basket (in addition to other things of hers that I was too distraught to get rid of at the time). Not long ago, I realized what I could use it for. Its the perfect size. And, it reminds me of Sally.

Pretty nifty, right? And, here's Sally. Wasn't she beautiful?


  1. That is such a precious picture of the girls!!! And Sally was a beautiful shepard~

  2. Good morning, Melanie!

    What a beautiful dog!
    It makes me happy to see that you could use Sally's bed for your daughters toy basket!! Even after 2 years since she passed away, she could still give you and your family a special gift!

    The photo on top is just too CUTE!!!
    I enlarged the picture and saw your daughters!!
    They were just way too busy playing with your magazines that they didn't even notice mommy was taking the picture of them!! :D..:D

    I love it!! TOO CUTE!! hahahahaha..

    Suzie ♡♡♡

  3. I think it's awesome that you found a new way to use Sally's basket - and it's perfect for storing toys!
