This book (and its sequels like this one and this one) was one of my favorites to read to my brother Alec when he was little. If you haven't read it, you should but I'll summarize briefly: If you give a mouse a cookie, he's going to want a glass of milk. And when you give him a glass of milk, he'll probably ask for a straw and so on.
What does this beloved children's book have to do with this blog? Well, because after my last blog post about our plans to redecorate our kitchen and reorganize our office, I have been having a give-a- mouse-a-cookie kind of experience regarding our apartment.
Getting new wire shelves will mean moving some of our white chinaware from the hutch to the shelves in the kitchen, as I alluded to in this post.
If I remove some pieces from the hutch, I should reorganize the remaining pieces in the hutch.
If I am organizing the pieces in the hutch, I should get down the rest of our wedding china from the closet.
If I am taking pieces out of the hutch to reorganize, I should just take them all out and bite the bullet and repaint it. This is something I have been wanting to do for a while.
If I wallpaper and paint the hutch, I will want to recover our dining room chairs to match.
And if I do that, I will want to reorganize our bookshelves in our living room.
And so on. I might have this project list finished by summer. But boy will I have fun in the process!
