I've been burying my head so much in house organization that I've neglected you. Will you forgive me? I am pleased to say the house now looks like a house and not a pile of stuff and is no longer making me twitch! I'm still trying to organize the basement, but that's slow and steady.
The more I exist in the house, the more I'm growing to appreciate it and its history. For a 100+ year old house, most people would never guess its age. It has been updated fully (a bit too much for my taste), but I keep finding vintage gems that make me smile.
I plan to have a house that exudes vintage charm with all the modern amenities. For the first time since moving, I can see past the disorganization and envision the perfect balance of modern and old world in the decor and art. Once I finish my organization projects, it will be full steam ahead!
