Clutter, be gone.

No photos because I’m spending the day in DECLUTTER heaven! I challenge you all to do the same. Grab a tote or a box and start collecting everything you have not used, played with or worn in the last 6 months. The Salvation Army/Goodwill will thank you for it and so will your heart and mind.

And a quote for today:

“Look not mournfully into the past, it comes not back again. Wisely improve the present, it is thine. Go forth to meet the shadowy future without fear and with a manly heart.”

fireplace renewal

This is the “before” photo – before we even moved in. You can clearly see the outdated black hole that is the fireplace.

Today I cleaned out all the cobwebs + soot. I’m thinking about painting the interior. Black, maybe? Electric blue to match the birds on the playroom wall, maybe? I know we won’t be using it for fires, so suggestions for alternative uses are welcome.

How about stuffing it with books?

Or maybe some fake logs?
