Home Office Organization and Placement

The placement of my desk is very important to me. I need to be able to see around me and have a very calm but pretty area. 

See this area? Not peaceful. It's right next to my Husbands desk area and he is not an Organized guy at times. 

So today we moved my desk to another wall. 
It took us about 2 hours to move the desk, get the phone set up and I simply took my time organizing. 

I'm really liking that my Laptop has an permanent home, Plus when we have guests over I can close my desk up.

The Pantry

I Love the size of our new pantry!

I've never had a pantry this size, even in our house in OH which was a built in. Our last house had me stuffing Pantry items in 2 random kitchen cabinets.

So my question, and I really need help here, is how to Organize this Pantry?

I've started by adding baskets on the top shelves, one has lightbulbs and another holds my cloth grocery bags for when I run to the store. I do shop but this makes me look like we need food!

Coffee decided to photo bomb again, she decided it was breakfast time!

So Please leave your Organizing ideas for me and maybe a link or 2 of some pictures. Yes, I'm looking at Pinterest as this posts.

Enjoy your Week!

Welcome Home


Welcome home..

This Summer 2014 we signed a lease on a great house. Even though it's a Rental it's in fantastic shape plus it's in a great little neighborhood that is within walking distance to a lake/park.

We are fully moved in and have been here for about 3 weeks. So far all 3 kids have made friends and most nights can be found riding bikes and playing legos outside in the driveways until the streetlights come on.

It's been so nice being able to tell the kids to go play and have fun but to come inside when the Streetlights come on in the evenings, We've never done that before.

Yesterday I was busy getting the 2 younger kids enrolled in their new School and Crystal is getting ready to start her Virtual schooling on-line. School starts in another 2 weeks and I will be getting those school supplies bought.

I hope to have a few rooms and vignettes to share with you very soon. 

Enjoy your Week!

New Zip Code- We've Moved

We've moved!

We are unpacking boxes and setting up a new house that we are Leasing.

After 2 years in an exceptionally small house, It was time to move forward.

I'm very excited to show you our new space and all the decorating options that I now have.

It's been a very long 2 weeks of packing up the old house and car-loads back and forth from old house to new house. We are in the home stretch though with minimal cleaning at the old house.

For now I will be putting up my feet and enjoying the rest of my Sunday.

Ponce Deleon Lighthouse

We took the day to go fill out Volunteer paperwork at the New Smyrna Beach Ponce Deleon Lighthouse and visit the Beach.

We had a great day and as I write this we are sitting on the couch relaxing since we got too much Sun!

We all made it to the top...all 203 steps going up, even Daddy!

We walked around the top twice 

A rather shaky look as we all make our way down

This is the very first lens that was used in the Lighthouse, it was so interesting to see the wick and how much Kerosene it took to keep it lite.

After the Lighthouse we visited New Smyrna Beach for about an hour, We saw a few jellyfish and caught Sunburns..lol..

We will be visiting the Lighthouse again August 16-17 for International Lighthouse and Lightship Weekend..We are setting up a few Ham Radios and will see how many different Lighthouses we can reach in 2 days!

Hutch Transformation ~ Summer

I bought a bottle of Murphy's Oil Soap to give the Hutch a new coat of shine. Looks like she was neglected for some time. I don't know why but I've started to call "her" a "she"...how Funny is that!

Here she is shined up and decorated in all my antique/farmhouse finds. Those lovely deep red juice glasses were given to me by my MIL and the blue dishes were my Husbands Grandmothers. I pick up any matching pieces I can find at thrift stores/flea markets. Still on the lookout for tea cups and matching saucers, those are hard to find! The white soup tureen is from a company called "Celebrating Home" , the same company that my new paper towel holder is from.

I would love some ideas on what, if anything, to add to each side of the Soup tureen. Should I leave it as is or add something else? 

I just know I'm going to love decorating "Her" every Holiday!

She's Arrived

Just look at her!! 


I was able to buy her for a steal and she was delivered tonight! She is a 1960-1962 Cochrane Co made out of North Carolina. Really for her age She looks nice! I wish it matched my table a tad bit more but for now I'll leave the table and hutch alone, paint scares me.

I have always wanted one but they always seem to be out of our price range and since we no longer own a truck at the moment it was hard to get someone to deliver.

This spot is perfect for her right now. I need to buy Liquid Gold to clean her up, someone smeared something sticky on her, they had kids so maybe jelly?

What would you use to make her shine?


Now I'm off to Pinterest to see how many of you have decorated your hutches.
