Natalie is a collector. Of. Pretty. Much. Everything! She has no fewer than 10 bags which she fills with goodies of all kinds. Her piles were starting to drive me batty until we landed on an unusual but successful solution a few months ago. There is an area behind a recliner in our living room that we designated as Natalie's house. She can sit back there and arrange all her treasures, and since it's in a corner and behind the chair, it is not highly visible and therefore no longer drives me (as) crazy.
Thought you'd enjoy taking a peek, though it looks different every day!
