Sick to DEATH of the linen closet falling out on you every time you open the door???? ME TOO! I was tired of literally opening the door and watching sheets crash down on me, sorting
through fitted sheet after fitted sheet only to find that the size I needed was in the laundry and SICK of 1,000 pillowcases, but never a pair! Anybody relate?
So I went crazy organize on it and here is the result: http://www.anestforallseasons.com/2012/10/li...

a friend once told me a space saver tip was to store folded sheets under the mattress..I don't
care for that idea but arrange my linens by one size on 1 shelf..one can label the shelf if need be...that way all sheets & cases for 1 size are on 1 shelf. I put the folded pillowcases inside my folded sheets...then when you pull out the folded sheet you have your fitted, cases & flat all together...similar method but without the clothespins & labels
I remodeled my 1970's kitchen myself. I refaced the cabinets with wainscoting and picture frame molding. I did my own tile work on the countertops and backslpash. I also made my own roman shade above the sink.

I love the table, too! Did you make it? so unique & definitely one of a kind!! Great Job,
We've been so busy with the inside of our house that we've completely neglected the equally trashed exterior. With a visit from the Mother In Law looming, we had to do something. A
little paint, sewing some straight lines, some electrical conduit for curtain rods, painting a design on a $19 outdoor rug, and a few plants, it turned this trashed space into a nice place to sit for about $100 in a day's time.

love this!! I find it difficult to keep the patio clean due to wind & birds...and then there
always is a swarm of flies in the center...we don't eat outdoors; any idea how to get rid of the flies? I have a couple fly strips that are round & they work, but are gross looking...but still have this constant swarm in the center....help??
Mu husband and I located a business where parking lot was being chewed into oblivion and brought the pieces home and made a walkway. We even placed stone statue with under-lighting in the middle to memorialize our son. This is mostly in the shade bur sure would like to have blooming plants in the center. Along the walk we planted dwarf gardenias.
Anyone with ideas in this area for plants. Full sun, drought tolerant, low maint, favorite color purple. Should I raise the empty area in the front to place some annuals and perrennials. Thinking about purple coneflower, purple salvia, purplewave petunias.? Should I move the smaller shrubs Help! Please

no hosta's as they are shade plants...I would put ornamental perennial grasses...purple
lovegrass doesn't get too large & is nice...Zebra grass is another nice choice...these would add some height & movement with breezes..could also add a bird bath but it would require constant water added ea day...barberry shrub is a deep cranberry purplish color...just be careful with spreading low plants...phlox blooms once & then it is just green until the next spring...lilies require some care (removing old blooms) & also spread...a big rock would add interest too....laceleaf maples are shade plants & won't tolerate hot sun. Impatiens require shade also...be sure & ask or read the tags before buying so you know they are sun tolerant. Have fun!!
