A GREAT FIND and my Soccer Star

These beauties were headed to the dump!!! Does that make anyone else queasy?
I have been looking for a set for years and I find it on my neighbor's curb!

My point is, it is a blessed day and I can finally cross this off my "want" list.
Hooray!!!



I can't wait to fix this set up!! Hopefully sooner than later.

details, details, will make this piece so much fun

CONTAINING IT ALL

I LOVE CONTAINERS.


old crates and a filthy coal bucket


Look what a little love can do!! Aren't they awesome?

This was used to feed calves on a dairy farm; now it is a fun way to store just about anything.

This old cheese box holds my son's word cards.


A cool way to keep toys in order.

A PROMISE IS A PROMISE.

Yesterday,  I promised that I would finish organizing my "dumping" closet.  I did, mostly, accomplish that task.  Here is the funny part.  It looks just as messy as when I started!! How does that happen?  Then I discovered,  2 major pieces of furniture were taken out of the room.  So the closet still looks pretty trashed, but now the room is HUGE!!!  Anyway, for this mama, I deem this project a success. 

Before:
Filled with stuff

After:
Still filled with stuff, but with stuff that we actually use.


HAPPY TUESDAY!!

PHOTOS OF SPRING BREAK

DOES EVERYONE HAVE A PLACE WHERE THEY "DUMP" EVERYTHING?  I DO.  THIS IS IT!!! MY 3 YEAR OLDS CLOSET.  SOMEHOW HE MANAGES TO PLAY IN THIS ROOM.  IS THIS CONSIDERED CHILD ABUSE,  HAVING TO SHARE A CLOSET WITH A CRAFTY MOTHER?  I HAVE A GOAL THAT I'M SHOUTING TO THE BLOGGING WORLD.  I AM GOING TO CLEAN THIS CLOSET TODAY!! PICTURES WILL FOLLOW BY TOMORROW, BECAUSE I AM NOT A LIAR! 
MY "DUMPING CLOSET" BEFORE. 

I LOVE CONTAINERS, CRATES, BASKETS, ANYTHING WIRE OR WOOD.
I'VE "INHERITED" THESE BABIES FROM MULTIPLE SOURCES AND I CAN'T WAIT TO MAKE THEM ADORABLY USEFUL.

FILTHY DIRTY AND FULL OF POTENTIAL

ONE MORE SIDENOTEEAR INFECTION CITY AT MY HOUSE THIS PAST WEEK.  I KNOW EVERYONE UNDERSTANDS THAT BABIES COME BEFORE BLOGGING. I'M HAPPY TO SAY THAT I AM BACK!! YEAH, THAT IS SPILLED POPCORN THAT HE WAS TOO TIRED TO EAT .
