Whew, today has been quite the day! So many things to say I'm not sure where to begin. First off, I finally got all packed up and then un-packed. Unpacking has been quite the task! I had no idea how much stuff I have accumulated over the past two years. I am a tad OCD when it comes to having a clean house and organization. With this being said, having boxes all over my room has been driving me crazy. I have finally got everything put away, temporarily at least. The rest of the week will be devoted to organizing everything. and yes I mean everything.. color sorted clothes, new shoe organizer and pictures are a priority. I need some advice if you have any ideas: I have accumulated quite a few pocketbooks and clutches and have no idea where I should put them? I used to have a rack hanging over my door and didn't really like the cluttered look it gave. What should I do with all of my bags?

On another note, I have decided to share an overview of what is going on in my life since it affects my blogging.  About 10 years ago my grandmother was diagnosed with Alzheimer's.  Since then my grandmother's Alzheimer's has worsened tremendously. She has a feeding tube and is not able to talk or get of the bed. The stress has been hard on my family, inparticularly my mom.  It has gotten to the point where several doctors have informed my mom that my grandmother's case is so severe they believe it is best to stop her feeding tube. Once the feeding tube has stopped it could be a matter of a couple days or a few weeks before she passes. With the family getting this information we will be having family stay with us to visit and when the time comes will be going to Alabama where my grandmother is originally from. I don't share this information to seek pity or burden anyone but rather be able to be honest in my future blogs about what is going on.

On a much happier note I am so excited for Mothers day tomorrow! I am making a fresh strawberry cake so I will be sure to share how it turns out!

  1. Your family will be in my thoughts and prayers. As for handbag display, I have a rack with hooks that my dad mounted on the wall in my room years ago. It can be cluttered-looking at times, but I have them organized and arranged in a way that looks really pretty! It may be similar to your over the door rack, but since it's only for purses and not coats and other things as well it looks pretty nice. I also have these gorgeous Letter Hooks from Antrho ( spelling out my initials that I hand necklaces on-- it might also be a pretty way to hang handbags!
