I know that's weird. I know my husband thinks I'm weird for it, but it just makes me feel "put together."
Can anyone else understand this? Am I alone in this? It's comforting to me.
I recently read on someone's blog (and I can't for the life remember whose...) that they were in the middle of organizing their house BEFORE Thanksgiving.
How honorable of them. What a great idea! Then I up and told Grace we were going to do that in her closet over Thanksgiving break. She looked at me and said, "WHY would we do that?" Which really means, "You mean I might have to work?" (at this stage in her life...work is just the worst punishment EVER!)
But I thought, what a great time to do this, right before Christmas, when we probably have too much of what we need, and we're close to getting more.
Excellent idea, I'm on it!
So, not only will Grace's closet get a once over, but also my hall closet.
Now, I don't have any before pictures yet, but let me just tell you, it's the tiniest closet in the house, which is really dumb, because it's for COATS. Come on home designers out there...who builds SMALL coat closets? Coats are big!
I'm eyeing something along the lines of this.
I like the shelf on the bottom with the baskets for gloves, hats, etc. I like the storage underneath for boots and the shoes that my kids usually leave ALL OVER THE RUG!
I would love for Grace's and my own closets to look something like this.
My shoes are in disarray, and I don't know what to do.
My craft area is really in pretty good shape, but wouldn't this look nice?
I think these baskets are swoony and use them wherever I can.
Right now Katie Brown has a line of them at Meijer. Awesome.
In my entryway, I would literally DIE for a bunch of these.
I would also like to take all of Grace's shopping bags she has been saving, and frame them like this. She's so into fashion right now, and this would just fit her room's "image."
So, that's my plan for Thanksgiving break...well, along with shopping on black Friday with Grace (first time ever with her...she's so pumped.)
What will you be doing, well, besides eating Turkey?
