Janet reorganized this Lazy Susan for me.
This food pantry was a disaster waiting to happen. Plus, I couldn't find things.
Former messy linen closet is now the organized food pantry.
This apron used to be my favorite. I made it in 1982. See how threadbare it is? I decided it was time for a new one. It took the persuasion of my relatives for me to toss the old one into the garbage yesterday. (Notice the contents of the linen closet on my sofa and part of my food pantry on the table behind the sofa.)
New "everyday" apron - fresh from my sewing machine.
It seems everyone one in my family has at least one special gift. One remembers everything he reads, another is comfortable on stage and off. One has the gift of focus - she remains so focused, so reliable. One is a marvelous teacher, another has the gift of creativity. One can take a broken machine and turn it into one as good as new. My sister is thoughtful; my brother has servant-like behavior. An aunt has the gift of hospitality, the other aunt - the gift of gentleness and humbleness. My grandkids have the gift of sunshine. Yes, they bring sunshine to my life.
My cousin Pat has the gift, talent and whatever you want to call it, of organization. She can come to my home (she's ALWAYS welcome), take one look at the inside of one of my closets, and without scolding, start to remove everything and organize it into catagories. Last October she completely redid the closet in my cottage. Yesterday she tackled my food panty and linen closet. Both were a mess! I discovered I had many more cans of this and that, and a few other surprises. With her keen eye, all like items are now together, and life in that part of my home should run a lot smoother.
P.S. I found my ear muffs. They were in my car!
