Our prayers are with all the people affected by Hurricane Harvey and the rains that continue to cause flooding in so many coastal areas in Texas. So many people are in crisis. Praying for strength for all the First Responders and all the good Samaritans that are helping out, too!

I promised to show our new closet doors and the improved inner part of my closet, too. We used to have sliding mirrored doors on these closets but are enjoying being able to throw both doors open and see the whole closet all at once. Too bad I failed to take a before photo.

I’m brave enough to share the interior of the closet since it’s nice and tidy and just got refilled this weekend.

Dear installed a new shelf and new clothes bar. We had wire shelves and bars before with a smaller shelf with little depth. It’s interesting how few dresses I own but that gives me more storage options below my blouses, tops, and sweaters.

This last week I found this swiveling organizer at Goodwill and I put my necklaces on it. I was surprised at the necklaces I had totally forgotten about while they were tucked away in drawers. I don’t wear jewelry every day but when I want to it’s nice to see all there is to choose from in one spot.

Very soon we’ll be spending a few days with this little sweetie in her neck of the woods. Her mommy and daddy sent us the cutest video of Addy trying to get a hold of a cheerio and put it in her mouth. So much growth and fun in the first year of life!

We are entering the last week of August and Labor Day Weekend is coming up already. Do you have any plans?

Metamorphosis Monday ~ Linens

It’s time for another Metamorphosis Monday and I have a mini met to show you today. Susan at Between Naps on the Porch is our hostess for this event so head over to her blog to join in or to see some before and afters…


This method of storing my tablecloths was not the most ideal. I’ve been wanting to have a space in my spare room closets to hang them instead.

Hanging them like this makes it a lot easier to access them and see what I have. This project is still in process and I iron a few tablecloths at a time and hang them trying to coordinate colors or seasons…

Again I forgot to take a before shot of this closet space. My candle holders and candles are more organized here.


I was able to box up stuff from this closet space that we never touch to make room for my Christmas dishware and all my chargers. That freed up space in my kitchen cabinets for the everyday stuff.

Now that we have Metamorphosis Monday I think I’ll remember to take before shots for all my projects. Thanks for being patient with me. :0)

Now to see some really amazing morphs head over to Susan’s!

Photobucket is holding all my photos I stored with them from 2007-2015 hostage unless I pay them a lot of money. I’m slowly cleaning up many posts from this time period and deleting their ugly grey and black boxes with a ransom request. Such a time consuming bother.
