No More Clutter.....


Hello all and Happy New Year! 
This year I have made a conscience decision to "Take Clutter by the Horns" and organize every room in my house, thanks to the folks over at Better Homes and Gardens Magazine. Their article on "Simple Storage Solutions to Keep You Organized" inspired me to get the ball rolling, and boy do I need to get organized. So,with that being said, my first order of business is to whip my master bedroom closets into shape. I have been perusing the Internet and below are some inspirational photos that I plan to incorporate in my own closet.

I love the simplicity of these closets. A place for everything and everything in it's place.

I love, love, love, the colorful boxes, and how the storage cart was used as a shoe rack. The clear shoe boxes get a thumbs up.  I really like them too!

How adorable is this? If I were a shoe I'd want to be stored in a box that looks like this. 
Now it's time to get back to reality. I saved the EYE OPENING part for last. 

 

This is how my closet looks at present. Keep Calm and Carry On, there's one pic remaining.



Yikes, I'm in clutter up to my eyeballs, Can somebody please help? 
Come back next week as I began my "Take Clutter by the Horns saga". You don't want to miss it!

2 you Home,

My Fall Table

There are only nine days left until Thanksgiving. And I am so excited because I get to share it with close friends and family. By the way, the grand baby will be here too! Yay! Ok, back to the post.   My Fall Table turned out quite lovely if I must say so myself. This year instead of using a table cloth, I used a variety of fabric samples swatches to cover the table. So, what do you think? I love all the different colors patterns and textures, and they actually play off each other nicely. And I am hoping the fabric sample table cover will be a great conversation starter as well. I will let you know how it goes. Spode  China and pumpkins from the Dollar Tree who knew? Initially the table had two fall wreaths and two lanterns. You can see it here. But I had to remove one of each to make room for the table settings. You know how I love animal print. I think every room needs a little touch of it. How about you?             

Easy Last Minute Ideas For Fall

The count down has begun! Can you believe there are only 8 days left until the turkey is carved? So, today I figured I would share some easy last minute ideas to get you through Fall/Thanksgiving Holiday. So let's get started! These diy wreaths may look quite intimidating but on the contrary they aren't at all. To get this look you will need a grapevine wreath, garland of your choice, floral wire and ribbon. Simply take the garland and place it around the wreath. Once the garland is in place attach it to the wreath using floral wire. Next, add the bow and hang the wreath. Project complete! Your family and friends will be impressed. For best results make sure that the garland is long enough to cover the entire circumference of the wreath. If the wreath above is still a bit much, why not give this wreath a try? The only things needed are a grapevine wreath and ribbon of your choice. Now make a big bow and attach it to the wreath. Voila!  I used a pipe cleaner/chenille

How I decorated my Christmas Tree/Foyer for less than $30

 I am over the super excited to bring you one of several posts revealing how I decorated my Christmas Tree/Foyer for less than $30.Yes,you heard me right. And I must say it looks quite fabulous, but before the reveal can take place, we have to go through the process. Sorry!!! So, keep reading to find out how I transformed the space for so little. Each year I try to incorporate creative ways to decorate my home on an extremely tight budget, and this year was no exception. But in order to get the ball rolling on this project, I needed some inspiration. Well, my inspiration came via a promise I made to my grand baby. I promised her that Zsa Zsa(that's me) would decorate a Christmas tree she would love. However, with that being said, I also knew the design/decor had to be whimsical and playful enough for her. But it also had to appeal to the adults in the family as well. (mainly me) So, I put my design thinking cap on and came up with a plan, that I thought would appeal to both partie
