REDNESDAY

I suppose I could start by cleaning and organizing! Mister saw me making Valentines at my craft desk and said the desk itself looks like a holiday card! Not sure what that means, but it's a compliment nonetheless!

It's definitely cute - and way neater than mine :) LOVE your cute want and have pix - I could so relate. Thanks for a delightful Rednesday visit!

AllyJo said...

But those other pictures looks so cold and sad. You're home looks cozy, loved and lived in. :) How are you, BTW?

Stephanie said...

The laundry room you want looks incredible...is it really possible to have one that looks that perfect? :) I enjoyed the visit and thanks for Rednesday.

Enjoy your week!

Hugs to you,
Stephanie

Ummm...Your "have this" pics look pretty darn good to me! lol
I laughed at the paints. It's exactly what mine look like...except there's an unpainted, empty spice rack laying NEXT to them. Their future home, if I ever get around to it!

Your home is definitely much more homey and cozy.

Oooh - I want that elegant horse shoe desk too! But yours is super cute and much more friendly-looking :-)

We seem to have matching laundry rooms -- except that mine is much smaller and therefore more crowded! I could never get all the dirty laundry in that one basket!! My paints are very well organized (by color) in a wire organizer made for paints -- except that it is in my laundry room and is so crowded that I can't turn it!!

I think your "THIS" is great! Your craft table is awesome! I work the same way...on a table full of stuff!
Warmly,

After I get some more 'purging' done I'm going to make a craft space for myself. Love yours! Hugs, Linda

Holly- Cutie Pie Cottage said...

Oh yes! The organization bug has hit us all! I vote for going outside more. THAT will take care of that! :)

AshTreeCottage said...

I actually like your craft desk! It looks like the desk of a very creative soul!!

Big Hugs,

A shelf or 2 above those machines may be awesomely helpful.

Pam~ Virginia Retro said...

Thanks Sue, great post! I laughed all through your "want" and "have" photos! Think most of us are sharing similar "have" realities! :)

Haha - love that laundry room - yours! My dirty little secret is I love doing laundry - I should have been a professional laundress. Oh no - don't clean the craft table - it looks like you're in the middle of some really cute works in progress. Hope you're having a wonderful day, Sue. xo Nancy

Patti said...

I love the laundryroom pictures - it reminds me of when the kids were home and I had piles of laundry - only I didn't have a L.R. I had a BLAZING HOT GARAGE! LOL! Now I have my first ever laundry room!

Got such a chuckle out of your "want" and "have" pictures. However, I would love to look around and maybe dig through your "have" crafting work space, so much more than the the one you "want". It looks like you would have so many interesting treasures and creative ideas going on in your space. I'd love to see what all you're working on. Sometimes as I read all of the lovely blogs, I get to "wanting" way more than I should, or could ever have. Some of the things I see go right on past inspiration, to frustration, since some things I see are just way out of reach for me. I thought your post today was inspirational, down to earth, and best of all it made me laugh on this gloomy, cold January day. Thank you!

You made me smile. I've also got a case of the "want, but have" syndrome this week.
I think your desk area is wonderful--and I agree with the comment that those 'want' pictures don't really show the warmth we're accustomed to from you!
:)
Happy(late)Rednesday!
