Ready for Monday...


I am finally feeling back to normal after my fall pinterest party on Friday night.  I spent most of Saturday eating leftovers, taking cat naps and suffering from the after party blues.

But today, I am definitely ready for Monday.  I am headed upstairs to begin changing our spare bedroom into a combination guest room/dressing room.  We live in an older home and the closets are dinky, so for years I have been hanging a few things in three different closets.

With my youngest out of the house I had planned on turning her room into a guest room but now I have decided to also make it a dressing room for me.  I don't know why I never thought of it before.

I have so many ideas for hanging my jewelry on the wall, reorganizing the closet and maybe even a little vanity area for applying makeup.  I can't wait to get started. 

Today I will be emptying out the closet and deciding what to do with all the junk valuable stuff that's being stored in there.  I am so excited, you know how I love a new project.  I promise to take pictures as I go.

Happy Monday all!

xo, Patty

  1. Great idea! I think all women would love a dressing room with plenty of space for clothes and all of our necessities!


  2. Once I had a dresser built into the one wall and a mirror also and then I could sit and have room to do my make up. Had a drawer . My closet was at left. It was snug when I pulled out the chair. Barley could walk around the bed but it was okay. Room was too small.Surprising when you dont have spaces . You can make those spaces when you need too. Good luck. It will look good. Think before you do though. Right?

  3. or forgot totell you.

    Your flowers and arrangements are so girly like in the jar. Meaning pretty be.

    Hope you feel much better to-morrow sweetie.
