Simple Delights

{Tea break}

{Kitchen favorites too pretty to hide in the cupboards}

When not used for meals these bowls hold fruit and vegetables that need ripening.

{There's a hedgehog in my kitchen!}

{A couple of TJ Maxx finds that will give some edge to any outfit}

{Spring organizing}

Each month I read a fair amount of magazines, some of which I subscribe to, some I usually purchase. Since we live in a small apartment, I have to be very selective about what to keep in our home. Magazines can accumulate and take up space pretty quickly. To avoid this matter I periodically look through each issue, cut out the articles that I like, and get rid of the rest. I then organize saved pages by topic, put each one in a sheet protector and place them in designated binders.

I use sticky label cards to write down the contents of each binder.

To avoid having rows of mismatched binders on my shelves, I buy multiples of the same style. I especially love this polka dot design for storing the recipes in my kitchen.


  1. Love that hedgehog towel!

    I do the same thing with magazines although now I need to go through and reorganize again. I've been doing it for so long I have too many big binders now.

    Have a great weekend!

    1. Oh yes, I have to do reorganizing or more like reevaluation every couple of years, otherwise I end up with too many binders. Luckily, I enjoy the process, so it never feels like a chore.
