Skeleton Closet: Humpty Dumpty Sat On A Wall...


I know looks can be deceiving, but I'm quite usually very stoic. I haven't really considered myself the type of person that is prone to fits of rage, so when I am raging you can be quite certain that it's been a subject that is long standing.


Although the hub and I are more optimistic than pessimistic, the source of my rage has been some recent news (literally a day after we signed papers for our new apartment--great timing!) of a new policy that was brought into light that may or may not get in the way of our move. In other words, there's a possibility that we'll be staying right where we are for a while. The idea of staying longer in a place that not even family desire to come visit is unbelievably disheartening.

So instead of packing, we're waiting... and waiting... and waiting...

Meanwhile, I've been doing something about the distinct lack of storage and shelving in my life.
I found a small plank of wood while on my way to the hardware store for my dress form, and turned it into an impromptu solution to my scissor storage:


It's mountable on the wall, but since I don't want to place anymore holes in the wall (the move may still happen!) I haven't done so. You don't need a drill to do something like this, hell I didn't, just a lot of elbow grease and a bit of hardware.

What I am wearing:
  • Top: Thrifted
  • Skirt: Self-made
  • Waist belt: Fairweather Co.
  • Choker: Self-made

    1. Why thank you =)
      It's such a dreary and dead place where I live; many of whom I spoke to dream of leaving! It's really that bad.

  2. That's nice scissor storage. I hope you get to move soon. GARR! That would drive me insane. I don't do patience very well.

    1. Believe me, my patience has worn paper thin! Heh.
      Thank you! I debated painting it, but decided I rather like the worn look of the wood.

  3. Great shelf and I love the fabric behind it a lot, too!

    Hope you don't have to wait much longer, and also hope the news is what you're hoping to hear ... :o)

    1. Oh the fabric... such a tease, like you won't believe! I have many ideas for it, but I can't ever seem to bring my shears to it =P

      I hope so, too! Every week they are telling us "next week". It's quite frustrating.

    1. We're still optimistic about it, we have many people in my hubby's work place who are working diligently at helping us... but it is the government, so it's still really high up in the air.

      I'm quite positive it will be smooth once we fair this storm ;)

  6. What a lovely outfit <3! I wish I was able to pair polka dots with a gothic look as you did. That is really a nice blouse, I love the ruffles on the hem... and the skirt you made is awesome!
