'Country Cottage' called my name...

All of my de-cluttering efforts fall away like a mist in sunshine when something calls my name...and says 'I'm for you' ...take me home.  Ah, this is a blessing to me.  And no matter what your home is like...sometimes hominess, coziness and small comforts are very close at hand.

I get an immediate 'lift' of my spirits when I simply tidy up a room, and hang up clothes...clean off the counters in the kitchen, wiping them down...putting away cluttery items.  Its soothing and makes the every day boring into a special time and place.

For those of us with limited storage (having since remodeled the garage into the most pleasant sitting room ajoining the patio via french doors) well....we  have almost no storage....just one small sewing room and...enter with caution!  Still....it was worth the garage make-over!

Do you ever wonder what a home looks like when the 'staged' look for tv is over and the lady of the house decorates with her own furniture?  I think...in a perfect world, that the designer would/could offer to help re-decorate the home with the owner's own furnishings. Don't you ever wonder about that?

I had an interior designer switch things around in my home once and it was awesome...what she did.  Well,  warm wishes for a pleasant day!

Psalm 17:6  'I have called upon thee, for thou wilt hear me, O God: incline thine ear unto me and hear my speech.'

I know what you mean...it feels so good and refreshing when you tidy up a room and put everything back in its place. I have a small home, built in 1961 so it has tiny closets and no storage, but I think that is good because it disallows me from buying too many things since I don't have a place for it. :)

Since we have down sized and live in this new place.
It is so much easier to keep neat. (I play a lot more)

I am constantly trying to keep my house neat...but with lots of stuff! haha! I have very little storage too and try to donate things I don't use. I got the free book that you mentioned! THANK YOU so much! I'm happy to have it! We can read children's books and color today! Hugs, Diane
