Shoe storage

I found this photo and thought this was a great idea for anyone who has a TON of shoes and is looking for a place to store them. So if you have space at the top of a staircase for some cubbyholes to be built into the wall or a set of tall bookcases to be placed there, it's the perfect spot for that ever-growing shoe collection.

The little stairs that could ... or how to travel the world without leaving home

Image from Vogue Living Australia Before+After Autumn/Winter special issue 2007.

This by now familiar image has travelled the blogosphere in 4 short weeks. We knew were it had been because it left a trail through Technorati as it was linked back to us. We laughed as it spread out further and further. But we only knew where it had been if our fellow bloggers who used it actually linked us as the source. You see the image is a scan from a print medium. Read the original post here to see. The magazine is cited and the manufacturer is in the comments. We know this is our image because I scanned it and there is no web link to it except my post.

So off our little friend went. Good friends blogged it and cited the source as desire to inspire but the blogosphere is like a giant chinese whisper and finally our little staircase was cut adrift. We had no idea where it had gone until we found this linked back to us on Technorati. Now we know where staircase has been thanks to Sean! This post alerted us to how our staircase had travelled like a ripple into the blogosphere. When he found out where the image actually came from he posted this reply. Thanks for following the breadcrumbs Sean and sending staircase back to us.

And the moral of this story. Always cite your sources and do a little detective work to find out where the image came from originally. Unfortunately staircase doesn't have a website but he does have an origin. Welcome to all those people who found their way to us because of this picture. Off you go again staircase. We'll see where you end up this time.

P.S. You may have noticed that Kim and I haven't scanned any images lately. All pictures are sourced from websites. A lot more work but worth it. We spend hours and hours each week finding these images for our readers and we love it!

Stairs and storage

Image from from Vogue Living Australia.
What a great idea. If you’re having some stairs constructed why not consider this. Handy and hidden, a great storage idea for linen, winter woollies, books and papers, anything small in fact.

P.S. These amazing stairs have travelled all over the blogosphere in a few short weeks. This is a scanned image from the Vogue Living Australia Before+After Autumn/Winter 2007 issue. The true originator of this staircase, the joinery company is named in the comments. If you're in Australia and want one of these then google their name and their address and phone number are yours.
