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...

When I purchased my new Samsung front loaders I measured carefully.... or so I thought.
The thing that sticks out of the door that goes in the door jamb to keep the door closed barely brushed the front window of the dryer.... sigh
I promptly taped the door closer flat against the door until I could figure out what to do.
Take door off
Send the pair back to the store and choose top loaders
Have a plumber come and shorten the gas pipe that causes the pair to jut out into the room
Order doors two doors that fit the opening.
I decided to order the doors and had them installed to open into the hall. It worked out well.
Here is the set up so far. I need handles for the cabinets and I think I want to get rid of the bases so I can use the top of the machines for folding.
I may try to use them under the white cabinets on the wall under the stairs in there. They provide excellent storage. I just cannot reach into the cabinets above them anymore without a step stool.
Here is the view walking in. Any suggestions or comments welcome. This is a work in progress.
Valentine Tree of Hearts
I had ordered these little zinc hearts and pictured making a tree like this for my foyer. It's simple but depicts Valentine's Day without the red and pink this year.
My husband drilled holes in them and we tied jute string to them and I hung them on the branches. I ordered the hearts from
Mine are 1" and there were 36 pieces for around $7.
