|Nothing I can do about these, I think the swing is on the outs though|
When we moved we chose to put a fun storage shelf in our family/living room for things like toys and such but it just wasn't quite functional for the job I had given it. So I set out on a search for ammo (aka baskets) against all the toy mess. I already have baskets serving as toy containment in his room but the toy mayhem was spreading throughout the house now and I just didn't have enough to do the job.

The fun little shelf was bought at our area flea market a few years back and it's very shabby chic oddly shaped and oddly sized so finding baskets that would work posed a difficult find. Justin gave me the measurements and I went on my way, forgetting my tape measure behind - luckily Homegoods provides little paper rulers so that saved me. I was able to find a few that would work after much debating and the outcome is much better. I have now dominated the baby toys and won the battle. I'm sure they will regroup and begin to grow in numbers and strike again, but hopefully I will be ready for them the next time and meet them head on.
|Much Better, Serving it's purpose nicely now|
|Toys are behaving, nicely tucked away|
|Also managed to get the little blanket in there|
Let's face it, those toys will never stay neatly in those baskets, at least I can dream.
And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus Philipians 4:7
For God was pleased to have all his fullness dwell in him, and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether things on earth or things in heaven, by making peace through his blood, shed on the cross. Colossians 1:19-20
