In case it's not obvious, our house is a thousand miles away from the scene of said rendering. Whatever we desired had to fit in the car. And our house is already pretty full, as the view above might hint. Can you find the new furniture? It's the manila-yellow tower sticking up near the middle. Otherwise, this is a view of the northwest corner of my tack shop. The horses do extend along the silver shelves seen at left, and then there's some display tack and another corner. (Future blog post material.) And then there's the tack bench proper, a few more horses and vehicles, another corner, a desk and you're back to the door. Not a large space, really, for such a burningly intense hobby and all its passions.
These particular views of my tack collection were taken in 2005, so keep in mind these two are from 8 years ago! But the corner arrangement is basically the same. The bench itself is to the left of the Western and Parade saddles.
Back to the present.
The new furniture was a set of shelves, in the form of a slender wooden tower.
And this is what I'd had the leisure to think of: my pile of Lori Batchelor Pony Pouches, or, as I call them, pony pockets.
By the most amazing of coincidences -- I did not know for sure until we got back -- the new shelves would fit exactly into this corner space.
I tighted up the screws underneath the bottom:
Now for the fun part.
And yes, I have hopes of it happening again.
Thank you, Ruth, and Ross too.
