Much Better!!

Awww, this is so much better. Clothes are sorted through and organized, extra hangers thrown out and there's even room on the top shelf for more "stuff".

There's a little more fine-tuning to do but I have books I love to refer to and art supplies and books in the baskets and extra room on some of these shelves, too.

I took my old shoe rack that's about 30-something yrs. old and gave it a new coat of paint and my shoes are weeded through and organized. Winter shoes are under the bed in a rubbermaid container. I threw out a lot of shoes, purses, and clothing.

You can see Farley's little bed in the right corner and he's got more room now. Plus I washed his little bed, too:) He loves to sleep in there and now it's all clean and neat for him:) Sometimes the kitty will join him!

I folded and stacked my jeans and winter tops and all my jewelry is together. You can see a stack of books with a bag on top. There is some fine-tuning to do there with the art books and supplies, arts and crafts. I want to get projects in bags and ready to grab at a minute's notice with all the varied (too many) interests I have!

So there it is - all finished and organized and so nice to walk into and see and find things easier. I just hope it stays that way. The floor really needs to be shampooed but I cleaned it with spray cleaner for now and after my birthday and a big family reunion held here middle of June, I will tackle that.

Tomorrow is the big day - the Big Six Oh Birthday!! Tonight is the last night I'll be 59 yrs. old. So far, none of the milestones have bothered me but with this one, I think - in ten years, I'll be 70 and then in ten more, I'll be 80, etc. (if I make it that long). But that's life!
