Noll on Tuesday's "Home Improvement" Happenings....

Sometimes, cleaning and boredom get together
 and a creative spark is ignited.

My Own was cleaning out the kitchen closet. 
She vacuumed, dusted; sorted through the closet contents
 for something called a "garage sale," patched walls and painted.

Anyway, being easily distracted,
she took a homemade kaleidoscope
that had been in a box of craft items and 
began changing up the beads and buttons. 
She monkeyed around shooting images
through the length of the tube. 
Some 80 photos later, My Own decided she liked how they looked. 

Incidentally, the closet did get painted,
and everything not going into the "garage sale" was put back.
(Yep, the kaleidoscope is a keeper.)

All in all, a tidy & good day's work. 







The closet looks pretty good too.
My leash and collar are neatly hung from a peg.
I was glad to see that furry important "keeper" item
returned to the kitchen closet!
It was sitting rather close to the "garage sale" pile
and I was getting a little nervous ;)

Interesting concept for photos - good thinking! They are beautiful! (plus it was probably a nice distraction from the 'cleaning and painting' too! :)

Mom and Dad are doing that Garage sale pile thing, too. Mom found a kaleidoscope that she could change the beads in but did not take time to play!

Lovely pictures! It brought back memories about the kaleidoscope we had when we were young 50 years ago. Thank you!

Great photos - I usually find something to distract me when clearing out cupboards and waste so much time - I put everything back where it came from!!

Woo, those photos are really gorgeous - a much more satisfying use of time than painting closets.
