Time to tidy up the joint.

As the air begins to feel a bit more crisp, my nesting instincts kick into high gear.  As much as I love to tidy up the house and get things back in order after a hectic summer of kids and crafts, I become sad knowing the warm weather will soon disappear and we will all hibernate for the winter.

But since winter is a fact (at least in our neck of the woods), we might as well get organized to help ourselves stay a bit more sane. Here are some great ways to use vintage items to corral all the “stuff ” in your life…

We have loads of suitcases, boxes small and large, frames, totes and trays in the store to help make that “organization station” either on the desk or in the corner of the kitchen a little more interesting to look at.  We also like to use items like pottery to corral all the “extra small stuff”, and magazine racks work great for holding the mail or kids paperwork from school.  The options are endless!  So instead of dreading all the work, think of it as a time to get creative and start using all those ordinary items in not so ordinary ways.

Cheers to a vintage life well lived.
