Old Frame .. New Look ...

Y E A R S   AGO  I  cross stitched this piece .... A N D 4 years now I have not put it up because it is SO DATED .... SSooo after checking with a few people in the fam ... decided 2 paint the oak frame !!
YES ... I think I can live with it now ... it is still dated { I think we call that vintage now } But I am a bit sentimental & this piece reminds me of our 1st house ... when our 1st two boys were small ... blahblahblah !!! So look at some of those projects of yours that you have stuffed away A N D rethink away sistahs !!                                                         

                                    Someone told me today ... " It is SO much easier to organize someone else rather than myself " .... E p I C .. so true so true !!

                                                                     Have a FAB day !!

drawer just T H R I L L S me ... truly ... But organizing is really ALL around us !! So that is why I

will be adding in some DIY projects .. not just organizing in a classic way. So as I find my voice with

organizing business ... so let's get our organizing hats on !!  { this is where I could put a pic up .. but

                                                  G O O D   M O R N I N G !! 

                                                Here is a quick (FAST) tip…..

                         TOUCH ONLY ONCE      if you are emptying your groceries… dishwasher

            it is so much easier; LESS steps once an item is in your hands…. put it where it belongs

           I know it sounds a bit SIMPLE but recently a client told me that little tip helps her a lot

           WHO KNEW really !!!!!

                                                                  Have  a  fab  day .....

                                                                                      ooh lala ... Lisa
