A Piece of Personal History.....
The photo is a little distorted and from 1905 but this wild bunch of men owned and worked in a General Store in the South Bosque area of Texas. The man standing tall and proud bolar hat is named Nicholas Spurgin Alexander, and my great great Grandfather. He was considered one of the richest man in the county of McLennan until the great depression hit when he almost went bankrupt.

We can never have too many ideas when it comes to organizing and displaying jewelry. If you're not short on storage space, reserve a vanity or dresser drawer just for holding bracelets, necklaces and rings. Designer Lynda Quintero-Davids wanted to add as much style and function to her client's dressing table, so she incorporated antique china teacups and soup bowls into one of the lined drawers. Each dish serves as a perfect way to separate small pieces like rings, earrings and brooches.
Revamp Soda Crates
Designer Holly Mathis needed a handy storage solution for her son's favorite toys, so she added casters to vintage soda crates and turned them into under-the-bed organizers. The small sectioned compartments are ideal for storing Legos and other small pieces, and the casters make cleaning up a breeze — simply put everything in its spot and roll the crates under the bed.
A fun and inexpensive way to display 8x10 photos, drawings and other crafts in kids' rooms is to use clipboards. They're easy to hang, the images can be quickly changed out if necessary and they add a playful, unexpected touch to empty wall space. Photo courtesy of Ashley Ann Photography
