We had so much fun, it was a little sad to have to go home. I enjoyed spending time with my hubby SO much.
And she's wearing her new outfit. I think she likes it!

I cleaned out all old and extraneous items from my purse and made a trip to Target and got a make-up bag, a card holder, and a small notebook. now I have everything that I need and nothing floating around. It's amazing how quickly I can find my keys now.
So there, Jay. At least now my big "mom purse" is organized. Now I just have to keep it that way.

Yesterday afternoon I got the urge to do some organizing. The house has been driving me crazy lately. There are so many things that don't have a permanent home. And this closet is awful. Everything is was stacked on top of other stuff making it impossible to get anything out.
So, $35 and a couple of hours later I built two more shelves in the closet (with much help from Jay, of course). Everything that came out went back in, and we were also able to fit in the vacuum cleaner, the step ladder, and the table leaf.
Speaking of the table leaf...we've been keeping it in the original box it came (which is bulky and doesn't hold it well). When I got done with the closet last night, I made a casing for the table leaf with some extra cushioning on the bottom to keep it from getting banged up as it lives in its new home.

I love the watercolor of the robins. And they are framed and matted so nicely. They were $5.25. The candle holders are waiting for candles ($2.22 each), and the vase with the floral silhouette($2.52) is just gorgeous. I think that these will be going in the bedroom as an ensemble (well, once we get settled from the renovation).
And these three botanical prints ($5.25/each) are going to be for my sister's birthday present. I need to clean up the frames, and I will probably paint them black. I think that she will either use them in her new house or at her office (both which have lots of empty wall space). So, Meggie, here they are...hope you like them.
Not a bad day, all in all.
