Sparking Joy


I know I promised you knitting but as soon as he rolled out of bed yesterday morning The Mister was all go about getting the finishing touches done on the bedroom. First up was the curtains. They're not actually done. I forgot to get the end pieces. Oh dear, another trip to Ikea. Poor me. 




 With all the furniture moved back in I had to go through all my clothes. I did the Marie Kondo thing and piled everything up on the bed. I evaluated it piece by piece. I had to say thank you and goodbye to lots of it.



 Here's some knitting. One of those big drawers in the new closet is all about the socks. I do have a lot of socks but they all fit in. Hallelujah.


 I bought a lot more of those pretty covered containers in all shapes and sizes Friday so I had plenty of room to store all my precious knits.


I still have the sweater bin to go through and put away but I should be able to get them all in these big boxes.



 Ta dah....a new bed cover. I really wanted something bright and happy so thank you Ikea. They were just putting these new sets out the day I was there. You can't get happier than this.

  2. The sorting never ends. I love the boxes. Maybe if I had some pretty boxes I'd be more inclined to sort more. Hmmm

  10. Oooh! Covered boxes - don't think I've ever seen pretty covered boxes. They are always lidless and therefore worthless in my dusty, dog haired world. Love your bedding and the frame. That headboard is fantastic!
