*Cleaned out the garage, office and guest room. Sent about 15 boxes of stuff to the thrift store.
*Rearranged the family room. Took all the pictures off the walls, got rid of some of the furniture and made a simple, cozy sitting area.
*Put some of my antiques on Craigslist; with plans to sell them all. No more swirly, curly, ornate furnishings...I long for clean, simple lines.
*Overhauled the front yard. Got rid of a flower bed I've always hated and seeded it with grass, 'cause it's easier to mow than to weed. The existing front flower beds are all shrubs and perennials; mostly green...heather, azalea, rhodys, hosta, and maples. We put down a nice layer of corn gluten (a natural weed repellent) and a thick layer of bark mulch on top. No more weeding the front yard.
I have big plans to sell the old Victorian bedroom set and create a much more serene, peaceful place for Kelly and I to sleep. Our room is small, so I've been looking at some nice designs on the web...which one do you like the best?
