We started our resolution to clean up our home in 2012, and before we move on to 2013 projects, I wanted to look back at all the little projects we completed in the last 12 months or so. This helps me remind myself of how far we've come (or backtracked), and hopefully, firms up my resolve to continue with "cleaning house" in 2013.
We organized our jewelry with a brass tree and ceramics
Brought color into an otherwise dreary living room
Coordinating our formal dining with color from the living room
A few new towels for a small powder room
Venturing outdoors to give color to tired patio furniture
New plants for our front yard
Clearing out years of overgrowth
We cut ourselves some slack during the 4th quarter of 2012, but instead continued to look for items we no longer used and donated the same to charity. Our closet (slightly tamed but still unorganized organized) was happier for it.
For 2013, no nook or cranny will be too small to tackle. And, I'm looking forward to the challenge.
