#write31days – Organize Home Decor

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!

Candle Holders

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!

Glass Bowl


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.
