Home Sweet Home...from College!

I have a relatively small kitchen, 2 maybe 3 people at a time can cook, do dishes or fix a plate of food. Tonight there were 5. Five people all trying to fit into 1 small space, throwing elbows, and getting in each others way. It was so crowded I could have reached out my arms and circled them all at one time. It was chaos, and it was wonderful!

Biggest Dresser Challenge Ever!

I have had this ugly little dresser for a long time, acting as a night stand in a bedroom at our lake cottage. I never really liked it, and no one ever used it, so I am finding it a new home. My oldest son recently moved from a rented house to a small quad where he has less room to spread out, but a greater opportunity for efficiency. (That's a nice way of saying: he has a much smaller place and so needs to be better organized!!) This little dresser will end up in a closet so it doesn't need to be too amazing, but I want to take the ugly out of it before I hand it over!

I Heart the Library!!

I went to the library with my kids today and picked up this book. I'd seen it referenced on another blog and was inspired enough to put it on hold at my local library. It features eclectic design in relaxed settings with really beautiful photos. I've been in a design rut lately and could use a little creative kick start!
