Every toy bin has magically turned into a miscellaneous bin, household items have migrated to new homes and can’t be found, and the closets have more clothes on the floor than on the hangers. So when the kids head off to school, I get my organizing groove on.

I have partnered with Home Decorator’s collection and I am going to share some of my favorite storage and organizational products. They also have an AWESOME giveaway for you!!!


Fab Finds


Do you have a site that you go to that makes you drool? That gets you energized and want to spice things up in your décor? *Sigh* I do. It is called Fab! I love it because it is so UNIQUE.

I have been asked to share some of my finds from Fab. They chance their inventory ALL the time. It is fun to keep checking back and see what is new. (They have newsletters and an email subscription that helps remind me) Here is just a taste of what they have.

If you know me at all you know I love stained wood, old wood, dark wood, any kind of wonderful wood!  They have beautiful pieces of furniture and accessories. I kind of really need wood sunglasses now….
