Merry Christmas To You!

December 23, 2019

I just wanted to take the the time to say Happy Holidays and Happy New Year! Can’t believe it is Christmas 2019 already. Going to be 2020 next week!

I wanted to share a quick decorating tip with you for organizing in the new year. I am so happy with my new spice organization inside a kitchen drawer:

I have always wanted to organize my spices where I could see them and find the ones I need! Not hidden in a cabinet or hard to read and find in a lazy susan.  This way is working out great so far!

Thank you all for taking the time to stop by. I love when you leave comments to let me know what you think. I really appreciate it and hope you all have a very Merry Christmas and a healthy, happy and prosperous New Year!

Week Two in the New Home

December 14, 2019

I can’t believe that of all the items I am having trouble finding for our new home, it is a new shower curtain for the guest bath. Guests are coming next week!  I am a pretty good accessory shopper but I can not seem to find the right one. I have been shopping local and online.  A friend commented on this photo I posted earlier in the month using two shower curtains:

I really like the look and I thought it was a great idea until I looked at my shower wall. I think the purpose of the open curtains is to have something pretty to look at such as a window:

Unfortunately, I do not have something pretty to view in my guest bath:

I DO have a curved shower rod which I never even thought about before. Did you know a curved shower curtain rod will provide up to 33% more room in the shower?  They say that it helps keep the wet, sticky shower curtain further away from your body so it doesn’t “attack” you like it does in closer quarters!We will see.Read More

Moving Into Our New Home

December 7, 2019

Happy Sunday everyone! I wanted to write a short post letting you know that I am still around, (missed two weeks of posts) and that we have moved into our new home!

Mike and I are now in a one-story home, half the square footage we have previously lived in. Downsizing is hard, (too many decisions to make about getting rid of stuff) but it is also refreshing and uplifting! For example, an armoire that was in good shape that we have moved six times to homes in the past and have hardly used, is now donated to someone that can use a dresser:

Great feeling. I have not had a chance to decorate much since I just moved in the day before Thanksgiving, but being so close to the Holiday’s, I am going to just do some fun Christmas decorating for now:

I am planning to do some painting soon I hope! What do you think about painting these tops of the tray ceiling navy blue?:Read More
