I know I’ve been MIA these days, but being gone doesn’t mean Elvis has left this building! Nu-uh. I wish I had some exotic adventures to share, but I don’t. No, instead the fed-up bug has gotten me, and I’ve been tackling a backlog of…
Just a few small tweaks can make a huge difference to utilizing storage, and being way more organized within! And then when it’s all said and done, you wonder why it took you so long, right? Over the weekend I tackled two small spaces. Here’s…
My cupboards are overflowing, my counters no longer bare,
My closet has no spare hangers, but I can’t find anything to wear!
My pantry shelves are full, yet I don’t know what to cook,
And too much stuff is collecting everywhere I look!!!
Sound familiar? Guess what I’ve been doing?
That’s right. It’s a new year, and I’m tackling the slow creep of too much stuff!
Because this is my goal…
Not the time, not the clearing of my head, but rather a beautiful place, instead! And the slow creep of too much stuff is not beautiful!

Thanks for stopping by!

Similar to this one here.
According to Urban Remains Chicago, this antique industrial trash can, c. 1910-20s, was made of heavy galvanized steel and reinforced at the joints with rivets. It was made by the Witt Cornice Company, now Witt Industries in Cinncinati. Founder, George Witt invented the first corrugated, galvanized ash can and lid in 1899 and patented it at that time.
These trash cans were historically placed in city parks… oh, and did you know that Witt Industries is now a woman-owned business?
But if I let Oscar in on that little detail, I’m pretty sure this is what he would tell me to do…
What do you think of Oscar’s vintage trash can?
I think it’s très cool, too!
With a little Oscar style in your space…
There’s a whole lot of personality in your place!
It’s about coming home… If you want a remarkable space that tells your story, contact me to see how we can help!
