Getting Organized

I don't really make New Year's resolutions, but this year I want to get my house and life in order. My husband and I can be pretty messy at times so this year I want us to get out of the habit of making piles around the house. This is my first attempt at decluttering my dining room. Sorry, no before picture, too embarrassing! There was a small shelf to the right under the picture but it was eliminated in the fist wave of baby proofing.

This is my favorite piece of furniture. My husband bought it for me as a birthday present

Baby Proofing

I need a hutch. I have been collecting milk glass for several years. Walking into my kitchen and seeing it displayed on a shelf makes me happy. Unfortunately, my eight-month-old thinks that I put them, and other dishware that is too pretty to shut up in a cupboard, there so she can play with them. So, I need a hutch. On our last trip to S.F., my husband and I spied a few that we both liked. Our favorite was a display(but also for sale) piece at Anthropologie(one of my favorite stores!). I have convinced my husband of the necessity of a hutch and now have only to find one that is reasonably priced and appealing to both of us. Two of these follow the criteria, the other...well, a girl can dream.

Mission Statement

I would like this blog to be a place where I can organize my thoughts, share my opinions, and show off my projects. I welcome all comments and constructive criticism. I love spending time with my family. I enjoy making and eating food. I appreciate fashion, and I have fun making my home a beautiful and comfortable place.
