my itch...

now with one kiddo back in school...
i am itching!
itching to get things back in order...
back in their place...
back to somewhat of a routine!

This piece arrived while we were away in
Texas... let me say... i LOVE it!
I am kind of cuckoo when it comes to
organization... things being in "their" spot...
i think this is just what was needed.

Pretty soon it will be oVeRflowinG
with hats & gloves & scarves...
all that crazy winter stuff!
Our mudroom can get totally & completely
out of control FAST... hoping this will help!

our doggie gretel even has a basket

even holds my gargantuan 1.5 liter h2O bottles

a pet peeve... spare change in random places

are there ever enough hooks... NO

So since i'm itching...
i plan to "scratch" a lot this week!
closets beware...
here i come again!

what are you itching to do?

Oh the filth at my house. Summer with the kids -- and all of their friends has lent itself to a never ending trail of dirt, grime and stuff. Lots and lots of stuff. Last year I tidied and organized with flylady.com. I may need to pay her a visit once again as soon as the kids get off to school.

I'm right there with you Sista! I NEED to get into closets and clean out and organize. My husband, who doesn't give a hoot about this kind of stuff told me that my next project should be our closet...that's how bad it is!!

That and finish decorating the house appropriately...mine is a hodge podge of random stuff and it's driving me crazy. I would like to paint a few rooms, hang some real pictures of my family, redo bathrooms, replace sheets and towels...ug, the list goes on and on!! I really wish I would win some total house make-over with Nate from Oprah. Hmmm...;)

Finally did my hobby room this week while the in-laws have been entertaining kids..

It feels so GOOD to cleanse!!

I've been nesting as well... I tend to do this right before the kiddos start school. Trying to get organized and back into a routine.

Now!! Funny that you mentioned the ginormous water bottles... my brain was starting to warp a little when I was thinking those were regular sized water bottles!! I was scaling down the entire furniture piece, the metal pails, etc. How weird!! It was an illusion!! Thank goodness you cleared that up... I was thinking that organizer was about 4 feet tall. Hee Hee Leave it to me... Jillism #726!!

Come swim over and look at the eye candy on my blog. ~Jill :)
