She Sorted Photos in Her She-Shed by the Sea Shore
How’s that for a new take on an old tongue-twister?!
I first heard of the “she-shed” in my dance class a few weeks ago. If you’re not familiar with the idea, it’s like the man-cave for women.
And you should see some of these she-sheds! Click here if you’d like to see a few examples…they’re pretty cool 🙂
Oddly enough, the same week I found out about the she-shed term, I just happened to be finally getting around to moving my old moving boxes from my garden shed to the basement, so that I could set up my shed as a photo-sorting station.
I’ve been going through all the old family photographs from my Mom’s place – but there are thousands of photos (sigh), so I needed more space.
Now, my she-shed isn’t very elaborate inside – but it does the trick. But what I did do was put some kids to work and we made a pretty little sign out of crushed seashells to hang above the door of my she-shed. It looks lovely!
As for the actual photo-sorting, well that’s coming along slowly but surely. Here are a few gems I’ve unearthed so far:
This quote about photos gave me a laugh:
“There are no bad pictures; that’s just how your face looks sometimes.”
– Abraham Lincoln
Hope you’re having a great summer so far!
