We're a few days away from the end! Since today is a surface clean in prep for the party (and photos of me dusting my bookcases isn't super fun), I thought I'd share a couple of my favorite small transformations from the month, areas that make me smile when I see them.
Since I cleaned the clutter from my closet, I can use this over-the-door hanger not for coats and robes, but to showcase some of my favorite accessories. This is often the first thing I see in the morning, when the light peeks into my bedroom and glints off some sequins. Spying a smile spot when you first wake up starts the day off brilliantly.
In this corner of my kitchen, I had the wine racks catty cornered on the wall, and bags were hanging from the doorknob. I added a Command hook (how did I ever live before Command hooks?!) and tucked the reusable bags inside the larger one. I used to just have the measurements print and the Julia Child art on this wall, but it looked a little naked. I had these breakfast-themed postcards in a drawer (they lived on the wall where the pegboard is before the bookcase was there) and adding them filled out the space. I also found these placemats I had bought forever ago while cleaning out a drawer. Sometimes cleaning is like shopping!
Which spots in your home make you smile?
