Monday Morning in August

Weekends come and go too fast. This last one was a fun one. I can't say I accomplished a lot but I am trying. I have been organizing. I am not organized. I have potential to be organized but ahem it is boring. The problem is I have a mess. Hence the need to organize.. (wow I am a Master of the Ovious) I have a mess still from the
flood, I have a mess from well...... me and I have a mess because I just have too much stuff. My goal is to get a grip. Hehe. The floors are all done except for the trim which we will be able to purchase soon. Then I can put back the furniture, that holds the stuff, that lives in the house that jack built.

I did manage to decide what to do with my Melmac- Sarah suggested to put it in a picnic basket and that was where I was headed with it. Then I was staring at this unused corner of my kitchen and thought hmmm I do have this great shelf that I was using in my sewing area......maybe I should paint that and use it in the kitchen. I have a shortage of storage in my little kitchen-I know it was designed by a man- one who only ordered take out. You know, I really like it-it is all cottage-y feeling.

What does this pillow have to do with anything? Nothing at all I just like him.

Planning requires a planner, covered with felt and my new motto....simple simple simple.....

Our dog:: so sweet:: so destructive- loved to look out our blinds and consequently broke them. It was a tad unsightly. Okay really unsightly. So I hung these. Now this fabric has been a part of my life for a long time. Recognize it Judy? I have/had a whole bolt of it. It has been curtains in several of our homes and just when I think I am never going to use that- yup I do. It is hanging from clips and I need to actually sew on tabs because they are long and puddle at the bottom but for now they will have to do.

I thank you all so much for your ideas on my felt blocks....I still haven't gotten them together but as soon as I do....... You guys are the best for advise!!! Thanks so much.

I am loving that corner shelf! Perfect for the square melmac dishes! But what I love the most... is that you can hang an apron on the picket!
I love anything that lets me drape, hang or display something I love!
Waaay too cute Natasha!

Your corner shelf is very cottagey with those pickets! I like how you have that pretty apron hanging off it!

I'd love to join the "that shelf is cute" club. We have extra picket fence parts...wonder if we could make a shelf like that??

Judy said...

I soooo know what you mean. I need to organize, too. I'm better than I have been in the past, but I still have a long way to go. I wish I had more time and $ to spend on organizing stuff. There are some IKEA shelves that I have been wanting for better than a year, now..... Looks like you are getting things under control at your house!

Marisa said...

Tiny kitchen = BAD!! I'm sure you'll find a way to make the best possible use of the space!

Breanna said...

Good luck with the organizing! Your shelf looks so sweet.

Felicia said...

I love that little pillow too. And that corner cupboard and you new organization planner!
