closet stories

Well, this really isn’t a story about closets, I just thought the title was kinda pretty.

I did, however, spend the better part of my Saturday piling, purging and sorting.  It feels so good!

I have been so inspired by these stylish & organized closets:




Now my closet can’t compare to these, but I do like the idea of putting like with like.

Have I mentioned I love white?


What is in front and center is my collection of scarves.  I tend to dress like I decorate, I think:  the bulk being neutral with statement shoes, necklace or scarf.  And you know I’m a stripe fan!



This $20 shoe organizer from Target has held up well for several years–so necessary when you live in a ’70s home with no storage.  Okay, minimal storage.  I sound like such a spoiled American right now.  I recognize this.



Let’s just keep on the materialistic theme, shall we?  Here are some new things I added to my closet this week.  From Victoria’s Secret of all places.  I forget that I love some of their clothes.  Made for a woman, you know what I mean?


I live in turtlenecks in the fall & winter.


I didn’t get this camel coat, but I love it!


I adore kimono tops.


I didn’t get this either, but isn’t it lovely?



a great classic shirt


And for my love of all things boho, I got this blouse in black.


one trend I love:  nude & bright     So good!


My favorite purchase?  This black & gold kimono number.  Can’t you envision with brown little booties and small, turquoise earrings?


Send me a picture if you love your closet!  I’d love to see it.

Happy Sunday,


(by the way–our first week of kindergarten was pretty bad and full of tears.  I pray it gets better!)


simple & clean

Perhaps I should be focusing on red, white & blue today.

What’s on my mind is only the white….

Just simple, clean & always good.

I dream of wearing this while I dutifully work below….

I’ve got to add in some of our own clean & white design here, too :)

By the way, this design won NCI’s “Favorite Space” contest!  Wahoo!   It will appear in Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles,  At Home Arkansas,  Mountain Living, and a few more this November/December.  Thanks for choosing us!

Better Homes & Gardens is shooting this project as well the first week of August.  We will sneak in some behind-the-scenes pics if they let us.  Thanks, Lisa Mowry, for believing in us :)

Happy Birthday America!  The older I get the more grateful I am that I live here and can raise our boys here.
