Happy New Year!

Hope your New Year is off to a great
For me, it's the perfect
time of year to clean, organize,
and plan new projects.
Yesterday I started on a deep
clean of the dining room
and removed a few Christmas
things, though most of our
decorations as well as the trees
are still up.
Today I began some more organizing
of the chaos in my workroom,
and things are starting to look
much better already...

Last week I started a couple
projects involving a yard sale
French door
a flea market stained glass window,
both picked up over the past summer.
I finally removed the Cinderella
pumpkin from the kitchen shelf,
cut it in half
and filled it with birdseed
for the Juncos who stay here
year round.
Thanks for stopping by!


  1. The Junco's are going to LOVE it!

  2. It is that time of year, isn't it when we want to start afresh.......I have been into my moving and clearing state too.....

  3. Happy New Year Deb. Your Junco's are going to be very happy :-)

  4. Happy New Year Deb. I like your new header photo.

  5. Love the ironstone in your header =-) I am in a clearing out mode, too. Yesterday I started on the bookcases. It's amazing how many cookbooks I have that I have never and will never use. The paperbacks are getting severely pared down, too. Looks like a trip to The Book Man to drop all these off is coming up. Christmas is still up here...it'll all come down in its own time so I will enjoy it while it is here. =-) Happy New Year!

  6. I also love your new header photo, simple and beautiful, enjoy your organising.

  7. Love your critter feeder! Nice!

  8. Happy new year Deb. I hope your year is truly rewarding.

    Thank you for your blog. I still enjoy it, after all these years.

  9. Happy New Year...I'm busy, painting, sorting and de-cluttering here too. What a great start to the year :-)

  10. Hey, I like that pumpkin-birdseed idea! :)

  11. Happy New Year Deb! I hope you and the family had a lovely holiday together.

    I've been wanting to do a little cleaning and reorganizing too. But once I took down all the Christmas stuff My house seemed so bare, I had to dive right into decorating it. A few more days and I'll be into deep cleaning the house.

  12. I love the feeder!!! What a great idea. Happy New Year!

  13. Fresh start to the year in fresh clean, decluttered spaces....isn't it a wonderful feeling? Love it.

  14. Good to know I am not the only one who is in the mood to clean after the holidays! My kitchen in in a shambles as I type this. Love the "bird feeder". Lovely!

  15. Love your new header (I struggle with headers!), and I'm so glad to read your Christmas decorations are still up too. I guess I could say ours aren't put away because we observe the 12 days of Christmas, but actually, I just haven't had the gumption yet.
    I'm inspired by your lovely workroom -- must get mine in order soon,
    Blessings to you this new year,

  16. Happy New Year, Deb! I agree with you about the new year being the perfect time to start new projects and do some cleaning! I'm actually going to paint our living room!

  17. Your banner looks fresh and clean and wonderful! Well, my house isn't quite ready for a Mr. Clean inspection but I did wash out my bird feeder and re-stock the bird seed - it's for the smaller varieties: black cap chicadees, wrens and finches.
