Slowly but surely, I have been organizing and clearing space throughout the house.
I love having everything tidy and neat in my drawers...no chaos please!
After a year and a half of retirement, I feel like I have my life together, and I'm really enjoying being a housewife...now my full-time career!!!
This linen drawer did not look like this before. It was stuffed with tablecloths totally disorganized.
I took out all of my cloth napkins from different drawers and cupboards, and folded them neatly.
Some had to be ironed.
I lined the drawer with pretty wallpaper (did not glue/paste it to drawer).
I find wallpaper rolls at estate/garage sales and use it for wrapping gifts, boxes that need to be mailed out, and now for lining up drawers.
I was inspired by Marty from A Stroll Life, napkin organization. Her suggestion is to stand the napkins on end, in order to see all the different colors and patterns, and can be easily counted to know how many you have on hand.
Tulips are one of my most favorite flowers in the world.
One of my childhood memories was learning to draw a tulip. I don't know why that stays in my mind. Later on when I learned where tulips came from, I promised myself that Holland would be a place I would definitely have to visit.
So far, Holland's tulip fields are on my Bucket List.
These yellow bright tulips make me feel alive and happy!
I'm so glad that you came to visit!! DH and I have been married for 28 years. Hubby and I are now retired and enjoying life. We winter in Sun City, AZ, & spend summers in Golden Valley, MN. This blog will chronicle our adventures (& misadventures) as a retired couple. We have 2 spoiled and devilish KittyKats, & Jack - the most adorable perfect Chihuahua ever, & our new addition Daphne Moone - the sweetest Chi!!!!
