A Little Organization Please

I hope your Christmas and New Year start was great. It was and is here.  My goodness, it's been a while since the last post! How are all of you bloggy friends?  We are well and planning a great New Year! Organizing and purging are among my goals this year. The above photo is part of that task. Would you believe all of what is in the cubbies was 'neatly' arranged on my floor here! It felt good to get it up off the floor and visible. Easily accessible and pretty organized.
I love these sturdy thread cones. They make great Tussie Mussies!
Our daughter's latest addition. The sweetest little girl dog.
She has manners and charm!

Hoping you all are having a warm winter and are off to a super New Year start!


  1. Lovely little doggie. It is nice to get all tour things tidy and organised, well done!

  2. Love to see real life incorporated into great decor. Love the cubbies and thank you for the post re my ISLAND RETREAT.

  3. Oh how I would love to have everything organized as pretty as yours.
    Yes, little doggie is a sweetie.


  4. It looks terrific! I've been looking for those kind of white storage boxes! I'd love to know where you got them.

  5. ...LOVE your organized unit ~ pretty to the eye and sanity for the soul!!
    ~ but my favorite thing, are those eyes looking over the back of the sofa :)
    Happiest New Year!
    xo, Rosemary

  6. Hi Linda:
    I have organization and purging on my list, too! (I think perhaps, many of us do.)
    Glad to see you're back. The dog is just so sweet.

  7. How great it looks, in its new places, and so lovely organised--and I know exatly what you means---I have tons of things on my floor-no more place on my walls!!!
    The new little one, looks so cute.

  8. Thank you for letting me know that the containers were purchased at IKEA! It was very thoughtful of you! I sure wish they had a store around here. I have a few more organization plans for my studio. Your cubbies look fantastic!

    And I appreciate your kind words about the beautiful area where we live. We gave up our country cottage with acreage so that we could downsize into something more manageable for our senior years, so this location was the next best thing!

  9. You can come organize my studio anyday! Please!!!!!!! LOLit looks beautiful and easy to reach everything!

  10. Uh oh .... you've given me the bug! My 2 pantrys are NIGHTMARES! I have 2 days off ... do I dare try to do this?
    Thanks for the inspiration!
    What kind of puppy? SHe almost looks like a Havanese - or maybe Maltese? TOO FLIPPIN' CUTE!
    Have a wonderful weekend! Karen

  11. Looking good!! Lovely little doggie.
    Our Mastiff, got my DD's Ginger House right off the table minutes after she decorated it....I mean who knew the dog liked Gingerbread..Sigh manners are everything.
