New Shelves

When things feel out of control, my favorite antidote: Organize.
I wish I had taken a before picture, it didn’t even occur to me. You’ll have to imagine, shelves balanced on top of other shelves. Piles of kimono silk leaning precariously, ready to tumble onto the floor any minute. No room for even a skinny slip of a remnant.
I imagined being crushed by the weight of falling fabric, nothing but a foot sticking out to show that I had been there.
New Shelves
Thank you Ikea!
After installation, I spent a lovely day folding and straightening.
The best part? Besides the order that is.
Do you see them?
Those empty places. Ahhhhh, breathing room.

    I’m so glad I found out about you! Your work is fantastic and very inspiring. I’ll bet sorting and re-folding your inventory was an exciting days work.
