First up was our overstuffed and almost impenetrable attic. I didn't take any photos because, let's face it, attic photos are not that exciting and I was too busy tossing stuff. However, I did happen to snap a couple of before and after shots of my much neglected closet that I attacked next.
|Yikes. I have a problem properly organizing my children's artwork. It mainly ends up stashed here and there.|
|Much improved, but there is still work to do. Mainly organizing my handbags. Any tips?|
|Better, right? I still need to thin out my jewelry. This was after major editing too. More purging might be in order.|
And since I purged, and got rid of a lot, I had to bring in some new stuff, right? Today I got the chance to do some browsing as my children both went back to school. I stopped in a delightful new shop in Berry Hill (the Nashville neighborhood where my husband's dental practice is) called The Wish List. I actually ran across it while perusing Craiglist. I met the nice owner, Kristin, and of course, made a purchase. It's a wonderful shop with unique vintage and handmade items. If you're in the area, you should definitely check it out.
|These photos are from the store's Facebook page as I was too busy chatting to take any pics.|
The item I bought? A vintage desk chair for my son's room for $25. Can't beat that!
|It's a great red color, but I'm actually going to paint it orange to go with the rest of my son's room.|
|I think he likes it!|
And check out the cute little package Kristin sent me home with . . .
It's the little touches that mean so much. What a sweet way to start the new year. Hope you're off to a great start as well!
