Organize Simplify Create Design

It is perpetual, living life and keeping it simple. Peace of mind comes from having a place for things. As I watched "Horton Hears a Who", with my grandchildren I thought about no matter how "tiny" the thing, it deserves a home. So I live by the old adage, a place for everything and everything in its respective place...

Decorative additions to the kitchen makeover

The overall new touches in the kitchen

I had been searching for the perfect chalkboard for this space. I found this wall hanging shelf at a local shop. It was perfect by dimension and has a little box at the bottom where I can store chalk and eraser. It had a clip attached and I found a small chalkboard at JoAnn's that clips on perfectly. I probably need to rub a little stain on the wood frame but this is exactly what I was looking for. I bet this would be simple to make.

The Chalkboard

The old train schedule is from 1968, when I traveled by train to see my boyfriend (now hubby) who was away at college. My girlfriend and I went down for homecomng.

This little drawer matched it and it houses the remote, pens and other useful items.

 I love this little chippy white chair I bought for the desk. I thought about a cushion for it, but for now, it just has a little burlap tie and a small pillow my sister gave me that says "dream" on it.
