A to Z Challenge - Z

This is it! The final post (well, until the Reflections Post that is). I made it another year and already have next year lined up in my head (and right now I'm thinking it's time to go back down to one category instead of two, but I might change my mind before next year). I'll save the finished piece of my cross stitch for the Reflections Post, but I'm not sure yet how I'll handle part 2 just yet. Oh well, I have a few days yet and we still have one last letter to get through.


Austen Alphabet26
It's not that I hate Lizzy, I'm just not a big fan like everyone else. I'm not even sure what it is about her that I don't like (it may be her popularity more than anything).


So I'm cheating a bit with Z...I initially had Zeus's brother as the category, but that fell too much into Characters and since I didn't single out any others (even my beloved Donald), then I don't think Hades should get special treatment either.

After I took all the pictures of my stuff and got to looking around, there were other things that didn't fall into specific categories per-se. I kind of realized that although I think I only collect Donald and Stitch as well as certain Princesses and Villains, hence the specifically named rooms in my house (i.e. Duck Room, etc), I actually do collect a lot more Disney-related stuff and even rooms that I consider Disney-free actually are anything but, like the kitchen:
Disney Z-01
Disney Z-02
Disney Z-03
Disney Z-05
Disney Z-04
As well as at least one of the bathrooms:
Disney Z-06
I have stuff "growing" at work as well, but since I work in a medical facility, pictures are a no-no (at least they are now thanks to HIPAA). I am really bad about forgetting what I have already bought and end up with two (sometimes three or four) of an item, so those end up at work, especially pins...I have an entire bulletin board filled with repeat pins.

And that's it...Jane Austen cross stitch alphabet finished and you got a taste of how junkie my house is! I'm not sure what direction the Reflections post will take yet, although I think I can guarantee I won't be ranting incessantly about how we were constantly bugged to plug our blogs this year, thankfully we were spared that by the moderators (or I just ignored it better than previous years). There were some amazing participants this year and almost all the ones I followed stuck on through, so great job everybody and see you at Reflection time!

Congratulations! I've really enjoyed your posts and am looking forward to seeing the Austen finish and reading your thoughts.
Your Disney shower curtain is awesome!

Heather said...

Great finish keiley! We have some kitchen stuff as well like the measuring cups and spoons. But we have Harry Potter glasses so I don't think it counts as all Disney ;)

I have so enjoyed reading your posts this month Keiley. The first time I went to DL was in 1962. I sure wish I would have kept stuff from back than. I'm looking forward to seeing your finished piece.

Great finish. I wish I'd managed to make it through but I was happier not trying to stress about it with work.
