Craft drawers being used to organize a pantry.

Organize Food Pantry With Craft DrawersSeveral years ago, I purchased a craft cart with tons of drawers, for additional storage. The cart itself started being too flimsy to use, but the drawers were in perfect condition. I decided I'd try to use them to organize my pantry, and I love the outcome! I labeled each drawer using my label maker and tried to sporadically place the different colors on the shelves.

 

A basket of fast food condiment packets.

Save Fast Food CondimentsEvery time I eat out, I receive tons of extra condiment packets. Usually, I dont need them, but I hate wasting food. I originally stored them in a ziplock baggy, but decided to find a container instead. I bought this cute heart shaped one at my local Mighty Dollar. Not only does it fit perfectly in my fridge door, but it allows easier access to my extra condiments packets.

 

Questions

Small black bugs on a white painted surface.

Identifying Bugs?What are these bugs? They are on the windowsills and around the baseboard.

 

A porcelain doll wearing purple and white.

Value of Porcelain Doll?I was wondering if there was anything special about this doll. I found it and tried to give it to my friend's daughter. It scared the crap out of her so I'd like to know as much as possible.

 

The wiring in a Singer Magic Steam Press.

Repairing a Power Button?I fixed some malfunctions and after finishing, I forgot how to arrange the wires for the power button (As it is shown in the picture). Please help me if there is a picture showing how to install. Thank you.

 

A blanket that has been left outside in the weather.

Repairing Childhood Blanket?My childhood blanket was used recently (well, a few months ago) as a kennel cover for a friend's puppy and my husband has left it outside in the rain since then. My grandmother made it to be able to fold into a pillow as well (hence the extra fabric piece at the bottom). There is also places missing that were there before he left it outside. Is there a way to salvage it and remove the mold without further damage? (P.s. he's already upset with himself about it)

 

A small wooden desk.

What Is This Desk?I bought this desk from someone who didn't know anything about it. It is in reasonably good shape with all drawers in good condition. Some areas of the veneer have bubbled up on the back, but none of it has peeled off. I am just trying to understand what it is (style) and how old it might be or where it might have been made. It is very heavy.
