Kat, do you find yourself drawn to the photos of nice kitchens in publications like Martha Stewart Living? All of those matching pieces, efficiently stacked, hung, nested, whatever? I haven't the courage (yet) to take the cupboards down from my cabinets here, and it does make the room look busier that way, but it is interesting when the everyday objects almost display like art.

Having a staging area is such an efficient way to work on stuff. We all know that the trick is to finish the work and take the little table back down (and then don't you feel like you've really accomplished something!)

I'll using my dining room table as staging for those playbills, they're pretty heavy for a card table (though I have one of those - an antique from my great aunt's house, one of the old ones with a leather top). The trick will be to get rid of these boxes and get some better ones to store them in.

I'm going to defrost a bird and barbecue a chicken this evening. I expect to be here by myself, but if anyone comes by, I'll have the start to a nice festive holiday meal.
