One of my favorite play things in my home is a green cabinet, inherited from my mother-in-law, which she used for her sewing supplies (her hobby for many, many years). The cabinet came from my father-in-law's office - an old fashion filing cabinet - discarded for being out of date. They painted it green; a color that is now trendy. The cabinet holds my supplies for my hobbies - such as they are. I have thought about repainting the cabinet, but the color is now current again and everyone likes "chippy" furniture. It is placed in my 2nd guest room where the sewing machine is set up all the time.
When the cabinet became ours, I cleaned it out some, but I left the spools and spools of thread, ribbons, rickrack, lace, and implements of sewing. I still had enough room in several drawers for what I wanted to store.
I must admit before taking the photos for this blog, I organized the drawers and cleaned. (Found a few items I had forgotten about!)

As for the small cabinets sitting on top of my hobby cabinet, they will be discussed in some future posts.
Until the next letter...
