6 Small, Random Efforts That Pay Off Big at Home

I like it....and what I respond to the most are the gold circles. I am starting to see a lot of self adhesive circles in design to day and some are removable. As I person who loves to change things up....removable adhesive circles would be so much fun. I have plaster sculpted walls now, so I can't do the adhesives...much to my chagrin~

I love the cleaner I get from Trader Joes....I just never seem to get around to making my own and this one Trader Joe's Next to Godliness with essential oils works well and smells so good to me.

Well polka dots have made a comeback from what I have seen of new nursery decor...and the rooms seem so busy back then...except for the Deco Room.

The Look for Less: Kristy's Kids' Room on a Budget

I dream of having just five outfits, done! I love thrift stores and all and have found some nice pieces at Etsy as well.
When I go thru my closet to purge....I put everything that is on the way out in a bag, then I wait for about three weeks and re-visit the bag and typically one thing returns to my closet....I find this helps me not have remorse and works great!

The pegboard idea I have been mulling over...anyone have experience with the installation and getting the right size and then painting it? Wishing sometimes that we were given a source for such question when there are articles like this~

I was thinking this morning...I hope that AT has a great post on redoing...as I puzzle about that with my studio...and what an inspiration..so well done and clean and just wonderful overall! Great job....now to continue to puzzle thru my space...part of the problem is that I work and live in my studio and am sort of limited...I will persevere however and dream!

Style Selector: Which IKEA Kitchen Cabinet Doors Are Best for Your Design Style?

Good thoughts here...for me it is all about starting.
Once started...off I go!
I give myself a timeframe or 'little' mission and does it make a difference.
I am always amazed at how much better I feel when everything is at least picked up...never mind clean....and whydo I put it off when the feedback is so great?
