Where...

did the weekend go! This is how my weekend felt.
I consider myself an organized person, but somehow everything has started to run into and over each other. So this weekend was the weekend; the weekend to reorganize! Well, it didn't happen. I had planned to reorganize the kitchen cabinets and closet (we only have one, which is part of the issue), and to file everything properly. I got one cabinet finished and all the filing completed (small success!). I just need a little more space, or another closet! Our sunroom is used as a guest room/office/reading room/catch all room. The desk we have in there is great, but the drawers seem to be filling up. I know more organizing and purging of things is to come, but just wondering how everyone keeps their stuff organized; from bills, to clothes, to kitchen cabinets. I love organization!
I remember seeing this closet office on Simply Seleta. It is exactly what I would want for everyday filing and responsibilities.


And then you can close the door. :)

At Your Service...


One of my favorite things about fall is all the seasonal change in the food. Thanksgiving is mine and my husbands favorite holiday. We enjoy it because it is all about the food, fun, and fellowship with family and friends. When I saw Domino showcase a few buffets, I thought I can't wait to have a home big enough for dinner parties (and a dining room). Out of their selection, my first pick would be this Louis XVI reproduction. I would prefer it in a lighter color.Which would you pick? What do you love about dinner parties? And what do you love about the fall?

A Walk in the Garden...






For a little more garden love, visit urban grace, the house that a-m built, the newlywed diaries and my notting hill.
(and share any other great garden blogs or sites that you may know)
Happy Weekend!

Eclectic Blend...

The combination of color, shapes, textures, and graphics gives the urban Brooklyn loft of stylist Lili Diallo from feeling to stark.
