Bag-Clip2

Bag Clips… Wrangled!

Oh. My. Goodness. AGAIN?? Today I had in mind to prepare this delicious spinach & mushroom torte on a bed of wild rice. I planned this a week ago and made sure to buy all the necessary ingredients. Then today I went to grab the bag of spinach out of the fridge and…well, the bag […] Read more…

Organized-Drawer-Spaces

Show & Tell

I don’t know about you, but for me nothing is more inspiring than seeing people’s creatively organized spaces. First I “ooooo” a bit, then I “aaaahhh”, then I start itching to see what fantastical spaces I can create. I get tired of just seeing and thinking “I can do that!”, and soon I’m scampering off […] Read more…

Spring Into Cleaning

How excited were you to read Clean Mama’s interview last Monday?!! Don’t tell me I’m the only one out there that struggles to keep a clean and tidy house. Heh, and with three kids and a hubby working overtime to undo all my work, it’s an uphill battle!  I had the pleasure of starting Clean […] Read more…

What-Organization-Means-to-Me-1

Organize Me Pretty

Andrea from Simple Organized Living really broke down the principles of having an organized life in Monday’s interview (read it here). I love the idea of having a wonderfully organized house and life, but when it comes to where the rubber meets the road…well, good intentions sometimes fall a little short. Sometimes we need to […] Read more…

Bold Design

Hearing from Carmelat Our Fifth House about how to be bold in our design (read the interview here), and being blown away by her incredible home, I’m more than ready to put into practice what I’ve learned! Plus, I’ve read and re-read Fieldstone Hill’s series on Overcoming Design Paralysis (read my post about it here), so I’m pretty excited about […] Read more…

DIY-Meeting-Place

Dare to DIY

I admit it, I am a bit DIY challenged when it comes to projects requiring the big power tools or actual skill. My poor little power tool set includes a cheap jigsaw, a hand-me-down drill, a rusty old sander, and a questionable router. In Monday’s exclusive, Sarah from The Ugly Duckling House shared with us […] Read more…

Before There Was Pinterest

Remember pinning before there was Pinterest? I do! *chuckle* I have been “pinning” since I was a teen.  I would pour through my meticulously organized magazine clippings over and over… shucks, I have been training to be a Pinterest addict since I was little. I never had a lack of inspiration or dreams! What about you, did you […] Read more…

Laundry Room Before & After

Mustard. Yes, I think of a big mustard stain when I look at my laundry wall. Not a pretty buttery yellow, just an unfortunate splotch of mustard…I feel this is just too ironic for a laundry room! First on my list of to-do’s is a nice coat of paint. I love small rooms, it’s a great opportunity to use colors […] Read more…

Warranty & Manual Storage

I fear my office space. Seriously, I think my mountain of papers are out to get me. I’ve decided to take this task one small project at a time, or maybe I’ll just leave the boxes of mystery papers on my husbands doorstep with a note and run away (metaphorically speaking of course, as we […] Read more…

Spice-Storage-Before-1

Spice Cabinet

I have the messiest spices in my cupboard. It’s a good thing the insides are a natural wood color, because my turmeric would have made them yellow either way. My spice & seasoning storage has annoyed me for the last time! I can’t find anything, I have spice redundancies, I tend to use the same […] Read more…

Pom Poms as Bedroom Decor

I’m a bit hesitant to let anything pretty hang just above a little girls bed… I can just see it now, one day I’ll be walking past just in time to catch all three girls jumping on the bed to see who can reach the “prettiest one”, and it will be bye-bye pretty. But ‘L’ […] Read more…

Product Love: Hanger Hamper

I actually fold laundry in my bedroom, partially because the TV is in there, but mostly because I have not yet learned to tame the beast that is my family’s laundry and often need a place to leave it until it can be folded. Thus the need for hangers nearby my bed/folding station. This is […] Read more…

Princess Pink Bedroom 1st - featured image

Bedroom Fit for a Princess

My daughter has a “fairy godmother” who we’ll call ‘L’ (that’s “Aunty L” to the girls). Well, she’s actually just godmother, but I’m pretty sure she made the special title of “fairy” after granting a pretty princess pink bedroom wish! One day ‘L’ calls me excitedly and requests to make over her god-daughters bedroom (technically we […] Read more…

Undie-Drawer-Before

Drawer Disaster Averted

So I have a little difficulty with keeping up with laundry, it’s all good. At least I put the folded clothes “neatly” in my drawers. Ehhhh…or something like that…  Ok, so maybe my drawers could use a little TLC. I swear it didn’t start out this way. We used to be so happy together, we worked […] Read more…

Master-Closet-Before

Tiny Master Closet

My teeny tiny master bedroom has a teeny tiny master bathroom, and worst… I have a teeny tiny master closet to match. Oh, I almost forgot, AND it has to work for both the hubster and me! Well, this is going to be a challenge!  Here is a photo I took while the previous owners still lived here. They […] Read more…

New Kid on The Blog Block

Heh heh, I feel like the silly little chihuahua trying to “run with the big dogs”.Can you see the sign around my neck that says “hello, my name is underdog. I would like to be you please.”? I am awed by what so many other home decor and organizational bloggers have accomplished! Their houses are…well, perfect, not […] Read more…
