Recently I bought a book called "Cut the Clutter", because although our house isn't cluttered I love books about house keeping. And I have found quite a few good ideas for organizing our closets, clothing, etc.
This is a photo of our linen closet after I got done organizing and labeling it. One of the ideas I tried from the book was putting each sheet set inside one of the matching pillow cases.
I just cleaned the newly "decluttered" and organized bathrooms, so thought I'd include some pictures of them. :-) I found a bathroom cleaner by a brand called "Method" that is supposed to be a lot more natural and healthy to use than regular cleaners. Their tub and tile cleaner actually works really well for removing soap scum and mould.
When I went through my clothes closet, I found more clothes to sell or donate than clothes I actually wear! Oh, dear. Haha So we are planning to have a garage sale in a few weeks. Should be fun. :-)

The kittens on my pink tiered cake stand are actually salt and pepper shakers. I was looking for some in the Old Country Roses pattern, and came across these on sale at Meyer. :-)
The crocheted lace pillow on our guest bed came from Ikea in Adelaide. They have some good stuff mixed in with all the more modern style decor, which I don't care for, obviously. Haha And very good prices. :-)
The teapot night light I found in an adorable shop called Nest in Adelaide.
We went to visit Ben's parents last weekend, who live about an hour and a half from Adelaide. It was wonderful seeing them again. Nathanael really enjoyed spending some time getting to know his grandparents. And I think they liked that, too. :-)
Our last day in South Australia, we spent mostly shopping, as you can see. :-)
