The incoherent mind

That's me, owner of the incoherent mind...especially, at this time of year. My head is swirling with thoughts, all kinds of thoughts, all over the place, like Thanksgiving dinner, tablecloths & napkins, appetizers, my new rug, Christmas gifts, having a wall shelf made, folders, something to match my new brown shoes, painting, haircut, baby gift, bottle brush trees, scrapbooking... I have lists that are too numerous to mention. It's getting out of control and the holidays are not even in full swing yet! Last night I went to bed with a pen and paper placed on my night stand because I knew that as I was trying to relax and fall asleep, I wouldn't be able to without thinking of a thousand things I needed to do first. The result? Another list added to the pile.
(Now you know how my blog got its long & odd name...well, that and the fact that I couldn't think of anything creative to name it that day!)
I wanted to share this find that I got at the antique store last week.

I think the owner of the store was intrigued by my buying it. He joked that I must have alot of work to do with a tool box of that size. Then I told him that it was going to be my Thanksgiving table centerpiece. He was definitely surprised and commented on my creativity. Well I think we'll need to see what it actually looks like when I'm done with it before we praise my creativity. Who knows? I could end up destroying the thing! I'll post a picture of it if I manage to pull it off though.
I just have to add that I am so ready for this tomorrow, I'm nearly salivating!

Have a good day my friends!
