I'm still de-cluttering (and likely will be for quite awhile) but I'm starting to organize and decorate a bit too.
The other day I went out and bought three under bed storage boxes (the soft ones that are made of cloth and have a vinyl window). The winter blankets haven't really had a home til now. A huge pile of them has sat on a dresser all summer, a smaller pile in another bedroom and another pile in a closet where it keeps falling on the floor. We keep the heat low during the winter and really need all the blankets but I obviously needed a better place to store them when not in use.
So I got these three boxes and then I washed every blanket in the house and went to the laundromat to dry them (we don't have a dryer and it had been raining for a week and I just wanted them done ASAP).
Now all three boxes are full of blankets and waiting to go under my bed
Tomorrow I'm going to vacuum out under there (with a dust mask
: ) and then put them all in.
Meanwhile, last weekend was my birthday. Last year, dh bought me a beautiful print (that I asked for - to heck with hints
) of a woman dancing in front of a sun. It's been sitting, unframed (but still in it's protective cover) in the kitchen all year. Well, this birthday, dh made me an oak frame to put it in
It's beeeeeeeeeyoutiful! I hung it up in the front room and every time I go in there I see that woman joyously dancing in a red dress in front of a big yellow sun. You can't help but be uplifted by it
I have to concentrate on de-cluttering because I still need to do that, but I have such an urge to re-decorate now! I just have to decide what I want to do. I'm going for "warm and inviting". I just need to get more of an idea of what that means to me
What's everyone else doing?
