I don’t know what it is about the Memorial Day Weekend, but it always seems to find me rearranging the shelves. John, over at the Batcave Toy Room has been doing a month-long blogathon about rearranging his collection, and that has certainly inspired me to work on my own shelves.
Last night, I cleared two shelves by mothballing 60 of my first edition books, which was pretty painful to be honest. I thought I would get the vintage Aurora model kits out of the glass cabinet and put them on the shelves since they really don’t require too much effort when it comes to dusting. They certainly make a decent backdrop, but I’m not sure I’m loving this yet. It’s a bit jarring on the eyes.
Looking at all the stuff I have in the cabinets and on the shelves, while also knowing what I have in storage has got me thinking a lot of crazy thoughts, and a serious purge might be in my future. I would honestly be happy if my toy collection was contained in the glass cabinets entirely and the wall of shelves remained dedicated to books, but that would require some SERIOUS trimming of the fat.
Maybe the books will go back on the shelf, I don’t know. At least I have a few days to work on it.
