One Room Down

YAHOOOOOOO!!! I am so happy to announce that the guest room is now clean!  Remember the other day when I showed you this pic?

Well over the past few days I've been going in there for a little while each time as to not get totally overwhelmed. I bagged up many many clothes, and things and took an entire car FULL load to the salvation army today. I reorganized the closet too so that I could get my bins of summer clothes back in there comfortably. What a nice feeling just to be able to walk into the room/closet without hopping over things!? 

My sister asked me today: "HOW do you let it get this bad!?"  I wish I knew the answer to that! I think it has to do with the poor space in which I have to keep seasonal clothing. I have great closets but for some reason they don't flow so that I can take bins out and switch them easily. And the last time that happened, I took bins out and they never landed back into the closet and then I cleaned out my bedroom closet and the piles just kept getting bigger and bigger!
Yesterday as I was cleaning out the closet, I stumbled upon my flute. Even stood and played a few notes, tried out some sheet music to see how much I remember. I was pleased that I remember most of the finger positions but it was more of an issue remembering how to keep the air flow into it so I sounded a Hot Mess. But it's okay. I miss it and maybe some day I can get back into taking some lessons.

On to the room!
Please excuse the dark photos- these were from my phone and this room is on the side of the house that gets no sun.  






Now I just need some overnight guests!!!

  2. I've slept in that room! Hehe! It's a very nice guest room. Did you change the room around? Is the bed in a new position? It looks so good! You do have the cutest house and you put such great care into.

    Looks great! I am cleaning my craft room/sewing room. I took a load of craft books to the library to donate and organized the closets. I know I will revert back to the same old habits with a ton of projects going on at a time while every vertical area is piled high, but for now I am going to enjoy my accomplishments! Feels so good!

  10. Don't creative people all have this issue? I routinely have areas that are catch-alls while I'm working on a certain project or wallowing in general inspiration. And it gets pretty bad!

  11. I almost feel like inviting myself over! What a cozy room <3 I am slowly trying to do the same thing, but I am already overwhelmed. So much I can't do yet, like lift anything over 5lbs. Someday, maybe if other people around here stop leaving their things all over the place and buying more stuff we don't need! lol

  12. That room looks beautiful and cozy and snug. I'd love to curl up in there with a cup of tea and a book.Good on ya!

    I only know one person who never ever has a messy house let alone a whole room. So I think maybe most of us let this happen from time to time. I have a room that is full of boxes from when we moved...a year and a half ago! It's easy to close the door and walk away. This is just the inspiration I need to start going through one box at a time.

  13. Great job lorelei. You should be proud. I wish my room looked like that. I am doing better about not cluttering the diningroom table.

  16. Wow. Good for you! You are an inspiration. I'm always using my guest rooms for other stuff and they always pile up until we have guests coming. Then I have to do the clean up all over again.
