So aside from trying to entertain an unstoppable preschooler, and the rest of this ever growing neighborhood kid clan running wild around these streets during a two week Spring Break vacation, I've been delving into the closets and storage spots throughout the house - first phase of a much needed spring cleansing to eliminate all the junk we've let pile up through the four years we've been here. A week long plight that included unpacking all those forgotten boxes beneath the stairs - remnants from "the old house" we neglected to ever properly go through. Certainly this is more of a job than I had ever imagined. But slowly, as the clutter starts to clear and space opens up it feels more than refreshing. Literally, like a weight being lifted. Another benefit of the cleanse is uncovering stuff I had either forgotten or considered lost. A couple old ink prints, our entire record collection, photo albums and other odd, beloved trinkets from times past.
Here, a couple clips from recent focus (other than reorganizing):
Paint chips, the ever revolving over the couch art self, newly stacked book storage in the dining hutch, fabric, vintage globes, grandma's 1940's drum lamp shade, Emma Lawrenson geometric prints
, Ikea Jorun Rug.
Next up, the remodel of the upstair bedrooms and all the fun involved in picking prints and art - as well as the love affair with Benjamin Moore back in full swing. So, many, great colors!
