before and after


years ago I painted this little motto above Alison's closet doors


while she was here visiting last week
she said
"I need to take a picture of this"


she is referring to my "nest"


my side of the bed
filled, stacked, to over flowing
books, papers, stuff
always multiplying 


my little "prayer rug" covered
cast off papers read


ready to junk


well, Tweety joined me in a little organization project


i hauled this little piece out of the basement
not being used


cleared off my nightstand


repositioned my little rug...inviting me


so alison, isn't this much better?


a motto above the closet
a good reminder

I never would have thought to put that saying in a bedroom, but I think it's perfect. My mom use to say that, but I don't know if I ever said it to my kids.

Your bed is so beautiful! And I can relate to the stack of books...I always have one. :)
