Those of you on the East coast know what I'm talking about, we are getting Snow! And it not just snow(which I love) but wind too(which I don't care for), so it's quite wicked outside. But it makes for perfect conditions inside to get some work done. Yesterday I cleaned and organized the basement playroom. Today I'm working on reorganizing and cleaning the mudroom closet. I am trying to make it more efficient for all the snowboots and snowsuits. And next I'm going to tackle my craft room which is about to become my 10yr old son's bedroom. I'm not looking forward to the work and trying to figure out where to put it all, but I know he will love his new room and I will have fun decorating it like an old fashioned boy's bedroom(I'm not changing the paint or stenciling).
I'm on a clean out the house kick right now. I'm tired of the clutter and lack of room to put things away properly. And I'm a bit tired of the prim, at least in the kitchen. I think I may lean more towards "farmhouse" in that room. Does anyone have any goods pics or blogs for that type of style? I have an idea in my head, I just would love some inspiration.
Which leads me to my next BIG decision, I'm going to sell my entire collection of Pfaltzgraff Folk Art dishes. I have well over 400, maybe 500 pieces, and it is just monopolizing my kitchen. I would like to sell it in one lot and not individually, so I'm not quite sure what ask for it, but the ReplacementsLtd value of it all is probably close to 8,000. I have a lot of rare items and the majority of my pieces are not the China made ones. I think it will just make my kitchen easier, because right now I have cupboards filled with the dishes, but I don't use most of them.
Here are two pics from Christmas morning. The first one is Mason enjoying an orange from his stocking.And here is the pic of the kids coming down the stairs. I take this shot every year.
Have a lovely day,
