The Cottage is Celebrating Celeste!

Celebrating Celeste. She is my "big" sister.  She's actually quite petite.  Common Goals.  Maybe it's because we're sisters, but we've got the same desire to learn to surf.  Celeste is turning 50.  She's in great shape and she looks 30, so why not surf?  Florida Cottage.  Since this is the place to be in March, we expecting a group of women to fly in from all over the USA and shack up here at our shack.  Surf Shack.  It's going to be a surf camp kind of a weekend with lots of laughs, food, and God only knows what else.
Celebrating Celeste.  What a great idea.

Organizing into the New Year

Did you make a New Year's resolution?  I didn't.  I couldn't add one more goal!  I've really been trying to just continue to move forward with my goals all year this year, so why not end December by de-cluttering?  I have a confession.  I had 20 years worth of odds and ends crafts spread throughout my house in bins, buckets and cabinets.  We dug into the "stuff" and it took all of three days to find a home for what I decided to keep.
Before


The end result was worth the effort.  We use this room for a "mud room", office, craft room, and entry to our laundry room.
After

How do you think it turned out?



Ready for the Fourth of July Weekend
