I Love My Cubbies!

Blogging has been so much fun this year!  I thought I'd start a review of the year with a look at one of my favorite areas to decorate...the cubbies!
First of all the cubbies are three wooden boxes that were originally intended for CD's but I have stacked and they make the greatest display shelves

The first post of the cubbies in March 2011
 showcased the color green

 
The first set of shelves I have a mix of green glass and other decorative objects
The second set of shelves has some special items 



In April I used birds



I moved on to 4th of July

Next was Cats to celebrate Charlie's Birthday

Halloween is always fun

Followed by Thanksgiving

And ending the year with Vintage Christmas


I hope you enjoyed this review...stayed tuned for more as we near the end of 2011


hugs,
Linda

What a clever little do-hickey to decorate... I love it! I found an old, divided drawer that I think I could do something like that with... :-)

Happy New Year!!
