Get Carded

My computer is giving me issues today, I think it’s haunted. Also, why is blogger insisting on sticking ten thousand returns in between my paragraphs? It’s driving me bonkers. I wish I knew how to fix it, but my grandparents are here visiting and I can’t admit defeat in front of them. They think I’m a mega genius because I can scan photos AND use Microsoft Word, and I want to keep it that way.

So let’s look at this throwback to the way things were done in the good old days, the days of Dewey Decimal. Cece redid this card catalog with some modge podge and printed tissue from Seven Gypsies. Prettty! I like that it now looks even older than before. Check it out on her blog N Your Dreams.

PS: Universe, I still want a card catalog, just so you know.

    Our school library just put ours in storage and I have access to it if I want. I am just asking myself what exactly would you use your for…I’ve seen them redone before here and told the principal that I may would like it…but the drawers with the rods in them are perplexing me!!! LOL!!

    I’ve always wanted one…to store all my crafty supplies in. There is one at a local antique store here in SLC but it’s almost $400! If only I was a rich girl!

    Yes that blogger return thing drives me crazy too. If you find a solution, let me know!

    I do find it less retur-y in FireFox, than IE, by the way.

    Love the card catalog!

    Yes, the blogger thing is driving me nuts too! I have found if you go into the Edit HTML tab you can manually take them out and then they won’t come back. I hope that helps!

    Why does everyone keep finding card catalogs? Where is mine? I really don’t know where I would put it, but I just want one.

    Love how this turned out!

    Wow it really does look cool! I wonder what she’s gonna fill it with.

    Do you use Windows Live Writer? If you don’t, you need to!
    Also, I want a card catalog too….and a wall of post office boxes!

    Earlier this month I found a small-ish 8-drawer table top card catalog cabinet in an antique store in Gruen, Texas for somewhere in the neighborhood of $275. I was very tempted because I have a spot and a purpose in mind for one(storing all the multiple chargers and remotes that are scattered all over the house!). What I had forgotten tho is how deep the darn things are!! Way too deep for the spot I had in mind, so I took a deep breath and forced myself out of the store. If you hurry it might still be there! 🙂 Now I’m looking for a generously sized spice cabinet instead!!

    I have the same rocking chair. It’s hidden in the back bedroom. I was thinking about giving it away. Thanks for a great idea. Love your blog.

    I love it! The previous owners of our new house left a giant metal on in the garage and I’ve been trying to think of something to do with it. And what to fill it with… they’re kind of small drawers to be truly useful for a lot of things, aren’t they?
