Yeah! they weren't!
I had a lot of work. I took everythig out of place, cleaned and rearenged.

I do have a few photos, drawings, watercolors and so that are already framed and I could finally find a place for them, but there is a spot above my sofa that is waiting for my dads oil painting for more than 4 years.
Now, he finished the painting and I can frame it.
So, thats my project today!

My project for the month is to make my home office a beautiful, organized, clean and clear place to work. That is a big project as you can see by my photo (

It is my home office as well as part of my closet, and should work as a crafts and sewing studio... Too much for such a small place? Hope not!
I’ve got a few ideas at pinterest (

I already have a magnet painted wall that works as a blackboard, I have two yellow bookshelves, a good desk and a beautiful old sewing machine that belonged to my grandma. Now I need:
1. Find a place to keep my purses, and give away 1 or 2 (maybe 7…)
2. Fold and stow my clothes in wardrobe and drawers as soon as the laundry is done
3. Organize and archive stuff from work
4. Buy a new Light Fixture and better light bulbs
5. Paint closet doors white and change knobs (I hate those knobs!)

Ok, first step done!

2. change bulbs in kitchen and both offices
3. clean livingroom ceiling lamp
4. change water trap in the laudryroom
5. Frame pictures: the accordionist, the girl with Modigliani's eyes and the green and red girl
6. grow a kitchen garden - buy vases, seeds...
7. Intall clothing rail for hanging dresses
8. Buy and install kitchen wire rack
9. paint wardrobe doors white/lighter and change door knobs
10. Instal LED light strip into Crystals cabinet
11. organize things under bathroom sink
