I have been a bad, bad blogger. When I came back I never intended to update my blog daily as I have done in the past, but I certainly intended to check-in more than just once a week. However, enjoying summer (and majorly cleaning out and organizing every inch of my condo) has gotten the best of me. I promise to be better in the coming weeks and months and check in more frequently!
As mentioned, this past week I decided to clean out every little part of my home. I did not just go through a few areas, but rather I literally took every item out of every cabinet and drawer and got serious about organizing, cleaning and letting go. I finally cut ties with things I no longer needed (I may hold on to goods for too long and have some hoarding tendencies....) and feel so much more on top of life now. Anyhow, the point of this is that I revamped my accessories and moved things around when cleaning.
My fridge was cleaned off and tidied up. I also hung an old Lilly memo board on the side which holds coupons and my favorite cards.
I scored these monkey candle holders on Joss and Main ($24 for TWO!). I have a few things on my table so I put them in the chinoiserie birdcages. I love the look!
I found lots of HUGE pearls during my cleaning. I was about to get rid of them, but thought I would see how they looked in an apothecary jar...I loved the end result!
The second apothecary jar is filled with my very favorite gum; Bubbaloo. If you have never tried it you need to track some down!
I gathered all my blue and white in one spot again and added in my Southern Nest monogram.
I purchased some pink and green paper straws for last week's shower. I had a handful left over and rather then store them away I opted to fill a cup with them and spritz the bar cart up.
Finally, I took a memo board out of my car where it has been living for 1.5 years (ouch!!) and hung it behind the door in my bedroom. I hung some fun momentos and old photos on here. It is a happy little pink and green board!
Little changes can make such an impact in a small space and easily refresh your home.
