Where to Put All the Extra "Stuff"



One of the keys to keeping an older home with small rooms clutter-free is to get creative with storage solutions. I don't like seeing piles anywhere in sight, so I like to have a home for everything.

Organizing a Small Master Bedroom



It is finally, finally starting to feel like spring might be coming soon.  This was a weird winter in New England with more rain than snow, and when we did get snow, it wasn't the pretty Hallmark movie snow. It was more of that icy, slushy, icky stuff, so I'm really ready to let it all go. 

 I'm not sure what has gotten into me, but I can't stop cleaning out drawers and organizing everything.  It's like spring cleaning on steroids. 

Since I love reading posts about decluttering, I thought I'd share what I've been up to and what systems work for me.

Lazy Days of Winter


  Winter break from my job at school has been lovely. I spent a lot of time doing the things I just don't have time for when I'm working.  Mostly, I got together with friends that I haven't seen in awhile along with some time with family, and of course the pups.

DIY Reclaimed Wood Kitchen Countertops

Hey!  Do you remember me?  

I've been hanging out over on Instagram and had pretty much given up blogging, but blogging was my first social media love, and I really wanted to get back to it.

Decorating for Winter



Happy New Year friends! It has been months since I last blogged here. I have been spending a lot of time over on Instagram where I share daily. I need to add the IG link to my blog, but I need to figure out how to do that. If you want to find me there, look for @thelongawaitedhome.

Pumpkin Spice and Everything Nice in the Kitchen



I love spending time in my kitchen in the fall.  After a summer of spending long days outdoors, mostly grilling or eating out, I can't wait to start cooking comfort foods again.

Pops of Fall Color



Today I am showing you all our family/tv room.  In this room I added those "pops of color" everyone talks about.  I am not a big fan of pops of color as I find it distracting most of the time, but I really, really love it in fall. I only add color to our home for fall and Christmas.  Aside from that, I keep things pretty neutral around here.
