This week I came down with a horrendous case of Organize-itis. My symptoms varied in severity but included…
Fever to clean out, get rid of or throw away anything and everything not needed, loved or necessary to our happiness.
Hallucinations like contemplating January as a perfectly acceptable month for a garage sale even if the high is 39 degrees.
Unexpected bouts of super human strength by hauling all the Christmas boxes to the attic myself because I wanted it out of the way NOW as in RIGHT-THIS-MINUTE and I wouldn’t wait for anyone to help me.
Delusions in assuming the 150+ things I wanted to do could be accomplished in 3 days when in actuality it may take 3 years. These 150+ things included ideas like repainting 2 bedrooms & a bathroom, cleaning out the garage, posting multiple ebay listings to sell one-man’s-trash-is-another-man’s-treasure items, organizing my photos & replacing old photos with new ones in frames, freezer meals for a month and other like minded activities.
Even my computer was not exempt from the clearing out process. The slightly random but hopefully inspiring photos in today’s post are images I’ve been planning to use but never could find the right angle to write about. So they’ve become my Hello 2014 post.
These pics are from my friend Cassity’s home. Much of the entry hall and dining room furniture can be found at Restoration Hardware. You can see more of Cassity’s home here.
You may recognize these pillows from this post but here you see them in their natural habitat.
My sweet friend Brec sent me these pics of the ivory and pink chevron wall she painted in her daughter’s bedroom. Way too cute not to share!
This just makes my heart go pitter-patter and adds to the delusion symptom of my organize-itis.

This Land is Our Land. This Year is Our Year!
“Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.” Isaiah 43:18-19
