Soooo… I just went on an almost 2 month “declutter, minimalize, paint, rearrange and transform EVERY SINGLE ROOM IN THE HOUSE” phase!
…and boy am I exhausted!
Here’s a little peek inside our home.
The first picture is our living room being used as a dual dinning room and classroom.
OH – there was so much stuff!!!
I can’t even begin to explain how much stuff we donated or threw away, but you can get an idea by looking at the other pictures of both our dinning room and living room.
Needless to say – I was in need of a break this evening. LOL 🙂
I combined some very delicious goodies to make a fall treat!
I steeped the Chai Spice black tea in my newest 5-cent vintage thermos.
(See why I needed to declutter, I can’t turn down something vintage! I told myself I wouldn’t go to the garage sale and yet there I was forking over a nickel to a sweet old man in exchange for yet another fabulous thermos!!)
I added pumpkin spice creamer I got from Aldi’s to my chai tea.
….and let me tell you…
– this is one delicious cup of tea 🙂
– it feels so good to write a blog post, drink a pumpkin spiced tea, and do absolutely NOTHING 🙂
Simone got this adorable vintage prairie hat at a garage sale –
(We met the lady that made the hat (and dress) for a dance about 40 years ago! We also bought the dress, but Simone is saving it for Halloween)
Since she is currently reading the Little House on The Prairie series, she has been working on a MineCraft world that involves all the places that Laura lived. Simone was so excited to wear her hat as she played!
