Miscellaneous Monday…NEW stuff i gotta share

Happy Monday!

I’m back to blogging (hopefully much more regularly)!  I’ve had a very time consuming work-related project that has monopolized my time, but now that I’m done with that, I plan to get back to what I enjoy doing…Exploring Newness (and blogging about it)! 👍😊

While I was busy with my project, my awesome hubby was busy too…with our laundry room project! You know, I’m convinced that the law of attraction pays attention to blog posts!

“Huh, what?” you say?

Well, in February of 2018, I shared a photograph of some laundry hanging in an alleyway in Italy (in this post HERE), and I mentioned a few things from my laundry room wish list – and the law of attraction has granted my wishes (well, my hubby actually granted my wishes, but you get my point eh?) But blog about something and it usually does come to pass!

I wished for doors that would hide my washer and dryer:

and I wished for pull-out shelves:

I’m THRILLED with my NEW laundry center!

I’m still trying to decide what I should store on the shelves above.  I can put ugly laundry supplies in the baskets, but should I go buy three more matching baskets for the top three shelves?  I can’t decide. Please chime in with any advice!

In other miscellany, I’m lovin’ the thought of using a digital planner, so I’ve been watching videos like THIS one, so I can make myself a NEW one! Yeah, I know I’m kinda late to that game!

And lastly, I’m excited to use my NEW glass ball in my photography (that my good friend gave me for my b-day).  So cool!!!

 

And that’s it for this Monday!  Have a great week and go do or learn something NEW!

 

 

 

 

Miscellaneous Monday – NEW stuff i gotta share

Happy Monday! I call this photo ‘Shadows of Cinque Terre Laundry”…because, well, it’s a photo of shadows of laundry in a village in Cinque Terre, Italy. Haha!  SO profound!

Other miscellancy today:

Speaking of laundry…I really want to do something with my laundry room!  Here is what is on my wishlist:

These doors:

Pull out shelves similar to this:

And lastly…what I’ve been reading lately:

books

The Element and The Checklist Manifesto were non-fiction and Before We Were Yours and of course, Sherlock Holmes, The Hound of the Baskervilles was fiction.  I enjoyed all of these and would recommend them all.

That’s it for today’s miscellaneous nonsense.  Have a great day and do something NEW!

 

 

 

 

 

 

My NEW laundry room organization

laundryroomsewingcorner

I’m totally thrilled! The little sewing corner in my laundry room (which I blogged about earlier) has now expanded!  I now have a cabinet for my baskets….the ‘drawer’ above the baskets will actually be a pull-out ironing board (not finished quite yet)…and a hutch for ribbon and wrapping paper!  I’m SO excited to efficiently use that space in my laundry room!  Here are a few details:

threedowels

There are three notches for the dowels in each row.  That way I can either stagger the paper/ribbon or use one, two or all three spaces!

hutchcupboard

I’ll use the cupboard on the left to store other gift-giving paraphernalia like bows, small gift bags, etc.  The cupboard on the right will be used for the additional sewing supplies that I don’t have up on the peg-board.  I’m love, loVE, LOVING it!  Happy Valentines Day!
