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. :)

I so need to give my room a makeover. Ordering a king sized bed finally . That's key.
