Just to Impress You


I'm hoping there are one or two of you who appreciate this picture. Just in case anyone is feeling like I always have it all together, I am showing you what our 'school room' looked like at the end of December. There is always something that doesn't get done. Always a room that isn't clean (or remotely approaching clean and organized).

I have new pictures to show you tomorrow, because the school room/library/office looks much better now. (I just can't show you pictures of the playroom. Or the kitchen. Or...)

I echo "Prairie Chick!" Seriously, I feel so brave when I post befores and afters...it IS brave!! And it IS good to know that everyone has their challenges--and not just in home organization! Honestly, we can't have a real LIFE and not have spaces that get this way--it's just not possible. Well, unless you're retired and have an unlimited income MAYBE. Thanks for sharing!! Can't wait to see more!!

YES - I totally relate. I still have a room that looks like that, full of Christmas stuff. And the laundry, well, I won't even go there.

When were you in my house? LOL!

I think every room in my house looks like that. It is so hard & seems to take forever to get a handle on things. But it can get out of control in no time. We're all just human and doing the best we can. Some days we have it together & some days we shouldn't even be in control of ourselves. Ha

Thanks for sharing.

Great picture!!! I thought it was only me :)!! No matter how hard I try to clean one corner, the next one becomes a jumble of papers and mess! As much as I would love my house to always look like the pages in a magazine, I also love my life to be REAL!!! Thanks for your hard work answering all of our questions!! Lisa

I am impressed... and relieved that we're not the only ones who can't get everything done [smile].

Wow! You're one of those, too?!

We keep joking about posting some pictures very similar to that. LOL!

I'm really enjoying The Little French Girl. I went ahead and dove in before I finished Frankenstein. Oh. So. Sweet!

Hope you all are doing well,

Thank you!
Your photos are so stunning and your decor choices so lovely....sometimes it's easy to forget that we're all human. :) Can any of us keep every room decluttered all at once?
