fabric bags, and how tall are you?
very sweet Austen (hi, Austen!) sent me two of these amazing fabric storage bags that she made awhile ago, (follow this link for the tutorial) and we've been enjoying them so much that I wanted to share. I had been looking for something to toss the play food and dishes into that looked nice in the pantry (check!) and was easy for the boys to move around (check!). The bottoms are round, so they stand up when they're full, and aren't they cute?
Isn't that a lovely yellow stool in the first picture? Some friends made and gave it to Phillip for his birthday last year. I love it, and probably use it as often as he does - I'm not a tall lady. In fact, I'm a short lady. I was told not too long ago that I 'don't act like a short person'. Which I think was meant as a compliment, but makes me wonder what the general perception of short people is - childish? Shy? Are shorter people more likely to be spoken down to, 'babied', or otherwise made to feel as though that's their place? Is there a way that we short people are expected to act? What do you think? So as an informal survey to satisfy my curiosity: how tall are you? I am 5 feet and 3/4" tall. And Adam is 6'3". Yes, that's a significant discrepancy, and no, I didn't 'steal him from a tall girl'. It also seems that I have a lot of tall female friends. As in 5'11" and taller. (I can think of four immediately.) I'm curious where you all fit? (Perfectly, of course. You look wonderful today, by the way.)
Good news: Phillip finally perked back up today, and I'm still not sick with the ick, so I *think* I've dodged this one!
