It’s the Little Things #39
Happy Friday! Here are my favorites from the week with you – it might be a quote, a print, what I’m reading, a favorite podcast, a playlist, a recipe, a helpful tip, a cleaning product, or something I added to our home. Basically if it’s something little that I feel is shareable or if it’s something I’d bring up to a friend over coffee or on the phone, I’m probably going to share it with you here. Here’s a link to all of the posts in this series.
What have you been enjoying this week? Any little things to share? We snuck away to Florida for a little beach vacation this week and as usual, anytime we go away I gain a little perspective and come back feeling refreshed and reset. If you can’t get away, step away for an hour or an afternoon and I bet you’ll find yourself refreshed.
This was a fun read if you’re like me and enjoy a good before and after – in this case, Ashley, one of the co-owners of NeatMethod shares the afters of her 1873 historic home renovation.
I came across this on Pinterest (follow me here) and loved how Apartment Therapy showed the online color, swatch color, in the paint can, and in real life color. I think I might be ready to do a little painting.

I grabbed this E-Cloth Flexi-Edge Floor & Wall Duster for some spring cleaning and am loving it. It’s great for baseboards, corners, and walls – grab yours here.

My husband and grown son have begun building a pantry in my kitchen. My house is pretty cluttered right now with things from the kitchen boxed up and sitting around the house while they build. With lovely Spring weather hitting Western Washington, the guys are able to work outside where there’s more room to build the large cabinets. Everything will be so much EASIER when I have proper storage! My cleaning supplies are currently not really convenient to grab and go, but THEY WILL BE! Meal planning and cooking will be easier because I won’t have to dig around to find supplies or hunt for cooking tools, and even clean-up will be easier because there will be a place for everything! AND, since I’m able to see everything out all at once, I can see what needs to GO and what should stay!
I can be over anxious, so in order to stay out of their way while they do the kitchen, I have been decluttering and rearranging my craft room. Decluttering is like successful dieting. You feel so much lighter once the excess is gone! THAT’s what I’ve been enjoying this week!
I LOVE your idea to put all the paint swatches on the wall and “live with them” a while before deciding. I’m going to be repainting the kitchen and craft room, and now that places like Lowes and Home Depot will mix paint samples of any color paint you want for about $4, it’s easy and relatively inexpensive to try colors via sample sizes.
Every so often, I fall off the cleaning wagon, and you’re right…taking a breather, doing something that refreshes you makes going back to your routine FUN! …even if that breather is a complete room over-haul instead of a trip to the beach!
