Let’s Talk Decorating!

organizing mission monday

I have decided my style of decorating is Organizational Decorating! lol I like things to look nice, but I want functional in my decorating. I’m not a big knick knack person (duh).

Thanks all of you for the links you have put up over the last 3 week while I was doing my series on the kitchen.

I am going to be moving into decorating this week.  I am hoping to continue it into next week (hoping that my dining room will be complete by then.  (But soon after comes the making of my new mud room area in my garage!  I’m having fun

See my Featured Bloggers This Week!

Toni from A Bowl Full of Lemons – Created  Topiaries for her mantel

a bowl full of lemons She wanted to have toparies for her mantel, but wanted to do it inexpensively.  She did a great job doing that. Look at how nice that looks on her mantel.

Suzanne from Delightfully Organized – Tour My Pantry

Suzanne reorganized her pantry, even painted it! She even installed pull out units on her shelves. I really like these!  (But anytime I find them I decide they are out of my budget) But look how nice they work!  But she is also lucky enough to have wooden shelves instead of wire (which you would need for these)

She has also used wire racks on her walls to add more space, and on the floor.

delightfully organized And look!!  She also has found the joy of the Command hooks!

So be sure to stop by for some more great ways to organize you pantry.  You will also get to see the actual “before” and “after” pictures of her pantry on her post “Tour My Pantry”.

Phaedra from Phaedra’s Adventure

Here is a great post on organizing meals.  Phaedra didn’t want to go to fast food restaurants anymore and realized she often went because she didn’t have food prepared.  So she took care of that problem.

Phaedra's AdventuresDoesn’t that look like an awesome freezer?  She also has cookies bagged up, fruit ready to go and that afternoon snacking food ready!

She is able to grab quickly what she needs for her day and can avoid stopping at the fast food restaurants. Check out how she has it all organized on her post – Meal Organization.

    Organizational…I love it! That’s me…I like things pretty, but not cluttered and very functional. I’m not big on knick knacks either, UNLESS they’re from the kids, then I love them no matter what. :)

  3. Carol says:

    I like that idea, too, Sandy. Even scrunching up a tablerunner is difficult for me, but I think it’s a cool look. LOL!!!

  4. Toni says:
