I was going to skip today’s task in the Organized Home in 30 Days challenge. The task was to organize your extra home decor and organizing stuff. I don’t really have a lot of decor stuff that I’m not actually using, so I thought it would be a bore. I told myself to do it for 15 minutes and see where I ended up. Here’s where I ended up after 15 minutes of digging up decor stuff that was stashed randomly through out the house:
I didn’t even make it through the whole house and I found all of that. There is some really awesome stuff in there!
I love these colorful tea light holders. I bought those literally more than a dozen years ago when we bought our first house. I think a couple of them have passed on to the great mosaic of smashed glass in the sky, sadly. The crystal (ish?) ones are cool, too, but I have no idea where those came from.
Uh, hello, 7 vases? Stashed away? Bring me some cut flowers, stat!
This is a stunner. This is my mom’s. She gave it to me. I hope she doesn’t read this and ask for it back. Also, the fabric underneath it is half of a pair of curtains that I forgot I had. I don’t really have a spot for the curtains, but I think for photos like this one it will be a great back drop. If I iron it.
This is two of about 47 frames that I found. I think I put a bunch of frames away at Christmas time and then never took them back out. What? Who does that?
I love these two fabrics. The bottom one is another thing that has been with me since my first home. I see pillows in the future.
Remember this wood from my 70’s inspired art work? I still have a ton of it.
This clock is getting hung pronto. I’ve had this forever. I love it. It’s very me.
So, the only part of the actual organization I’ve done is the gathering of like things and a tiny bit of purging. But basically I have a huge pile of stuff that needs a home now. Woof.
