it's the little things


after almost 2 years we finally added closet doors to the only closet in the house


this is what the closet looked like after a major clean out



our neighbors were getting rid of these and they fit perfectly.



next, i polished the chandelier


added some garden roses








& a RL plaid blanket for warmth.

  1. It looks lovely! We are thinking of adding a closet to our guest room. It already has one that is full of my fabric and yarn and all sorts of things. Our little house is sadly lacking in storage space and if we add one to the Guest Room, my husband can use it and I can use the one in our bedroom. Hopefully, we'll get around to it soon!

  2. Very pretty! Can't believe you have so little closet space. Although I suppose if I had less space, I might have less stuff. Useless, closet-clogging stuff at that!

  3. Looks fab Janet. You never cease to inspire me...

    Hey, I am interested in including you in a list of inspiring bloggers I am thinking about writing (I have too many post ideas and not enough post TIME). Would you mind??!

    I don't think so. I will write nice things. :)

  4. A WONDERFUL POST JANET!!! So lovely, your room is gorgeous!!! Everything so white and bright and the contrast you make with blacks, love it!! So different from what I have, and Mr Gold would criticize me as I have so many stuff gathered together that nothing looks special.... but I love my stuff!!!
