Life is interconnected and so are the topics on this blog. It might be cooking and gardening one day, yoga the next, knitting and sewing, or hiking and then bird watching followed by recycling or composting. They are the parts that bring humble joy to my life of voluntary simplicity in Montana.

New Shelves for Old Jars
While I was in Seattle Matt tackled a project we had sort of lazily
dreamed about a few times. I came home and it was done! Poof! Just
like that. With a festive little holiday bow even!
See, I have this great passion for making use of wall space for storage. Just as in gardening I think its a brilliant idea to make valuable use of the vertical space. Using hooks and shelves on
the walls just makes sense to me. In our utility room/tie-dye
laboratory/canned goods pantry there was a wall of exposed 2x4s. We
thought it would look sharp and be a good way to get some additional
storage if we mounted shelves between the 2x4s for our jars of jams, sauces, apples, etc.
It looks even sharper than I'd hoped, actually, and he did it all with leftover scrap wood. Whenever I am gone Matt gets so busy around the house...not that he isn't busy most of the time! What a gem!
