How Do You Like it Now

 
WhooHoo! I’m really sticking to my word, organize, so much so that I’m surprising myself. I sure hope I keep it up, today I took down all the inside Christmas décor and packed it all away in the basement (also taking the time to wrap things with tissue paper). I didn’t put it with the other Christmas things I haven’t used for a few years though, I’m keeping the old out to go thur and throw away or give to GW. I so can’t wait to get this house organized, I didn’t even tell my husband that I was going to do this, I’m just going to do it on my own!
I also did a little sprucing up on my open kitchen shelves after I took everything down to clean. I’m really in love with them now, you can also  tell what time I took these photos the lighting at this time of day isn’t that great but I wanted to join in on some linky party’s, if I don’t I always feel like I’m missing something:)

I got tired of the bottles on there so it was time for a change!

I found this cloche at GW a while ago and used a large pinecone for the winter months, the cow is also from GW and the breadboards I’ve had for years, love the scorched one in the back! I think I bought that one from Ebay! Do you think it looks like farmhouse style?

This silver dish, top and plate and glass dish inside, came from GW too I usually kept in the diningroom hutch, I but decided to shop my home and you know what? It was fun! Love the knob on it!

I think the little clock that I found at GW not to long ago looks cute next to the big one!
after Christmas 007
I only worked one day this week and one next week, so I’m going to enjoy organizing and decorating all day long:)

Love the current look, it's very clean and easy for the eye to flow and see all the charming tidbits. Great update!

Amber Lyon Ferguson said...

Sound like we have the same goal... ORGANIZE! I have vowed to have clean, organized, recently used (within the past 5 years) Christmas decorations when I open my totes next year. No more sorting through hoards that I "might use again someday."
Your shelves look nice. Good luck with your organizing!

I agree, it's time to organize. I have been working on purging for two days and hope I don't lose my momentum either. Your silver dome is fabulous. Can't tell if it's a butter dish or an actual meat dome. No matter which it is, I love it.

Your shelves look wonderful...very simple and clean. I love to organize when I'm in the mood...it's really gratifying. I still have Christmas to take down before I can work on rooms. You go girl!

XO,

Anne said...

Have a great weekend!

Rondell- It really looks great. I am with you- I worked on taking Christmas down today, too, and sorting and organizing as I went. It feels great, doesn't it? Blessings to you- xo Diana

I'm still purging the Christmas decorations so it's a good motivation to see your pretty shelves. Love the silver butter dish!

Ricki Jill Treleaven said...

Rondell, I love open shelving, especially in kitchens. Your winter white vignette looks wonderful! :D I'm taking down our Christmas decor today and placing it on newly installed shelving in a closet and in the attic. We're working hard getting organized around here, too!

Happy New Year!
xo,
Ricki Jill

We have been cleaning out like crazy around here. I love to clean out and organize at the beginning of the new year.

Your shelves look great.

I love this...especially the bread boards. They are most definitely classic farmhouse!

You have mastered the art of shelf styling I believe! I love the changes you made. I do think it looks farmhousey (is that a word?). I love the combo of wood with white dishes and a little metal thrown in. You have all of those. I think that's why it looks so good. I need to organize my basement storage area. I plan to do that this weekend. Cleaning out is not overrated!

Good for you, Rondell! I wish I could be as committed as you are.
Your shelves look great! Love all your goodies you've found at GW.
You do such a good job arranging everything.
I finally put all the Christmas decor away just yesterday.
Happy New Year to you!

Hi, Rondell! I love what you've done with your shelves! I've been wanting to set up a pair in my new place and you've definitely encouraged me! I'm following your pinterest board too!

Linda @ Itsy Bits And Pieces said...

This is lovely, Rondell...love the bread boards...and the cloche over the pine cone is so fun!

Traci Creel said...

Love all the white. I always get the urge to organize this time of year too. Organize is a great word for the year. I picked"solutions" and that may involve some organizing along the way. I will be watching for your organizational tips.
