all done

whew!  eight hours later, with the help of a sweet little
encourager, i'm done.  



five trash bags, five give away bags,  and countless little trips
hauling stuff  to more appropriates resting places pretty much 
"done me in",  as eliza doolittle would say.



did anyone notice the sign on the right?  one of my favorite sayings:  
"if momma ain't happy ain't nobody happy!"



"come unto Me, all you who are weary and heavy laden."
matthew 11:28

love,
lea

Wow!!! I've been working on my storage room and office for several days now. I have not had a full day to devote to it. I am so inspired by you. When I finish, I'll post pics. Carla

Hi dearest,
have been on vacation for awhile and now that I'm back I'm slowly catching up with my dear bloggy friends.
Well girl you did a great job with your home office. looks so neat and inspiring.the right place to sit down and let inspiration carry you away for another of your wonderful posts.
I'd love to have enough space in the apartment for anh office but there's barely space for us three, my sweet doggie and all my flea finds. filled to the brim.
and still the house of my dreams seems to be miles away from me...
will i ever find it before my DD is away on her own and i'm too old to enjoy it?
shall we tell emily??????????
hugs
rita

Debbie said...

Wow; you have been busy. And I love that you had a little helper. Maybe you'd like to visit me? I have an office that needs some fixing up. LOL: just kidding.

Blessings and love,
Debbie

Together We Save said...

Wow - looks great!! I need to follow your lead!

Jemm said...

I love your room. I wish I'd muster enough courage to tackle mine. I think I have the same printer that you do. I love that saying too. It is so true, isn't it! Have a great day Lea.

Cinnamon said...

Your space looks so uncluttered and organized! I think you have lit the fire under me to get moving on mine!

You are a FORCE to be reckoned with. Or else that was some magical strawberry shortcake. Both are equally believable. :) Either way, GO ON WIT' YA BAD SELF is what I have to say about that.

Farm Girl said...

Wow how did you do that so fast!! It looks really good, now are you excited that you can go in and start making messes?
It looks like a very nice room!

Mildred said...

It looks wonderful and you are an inspiration. Hope you enjoy the weekend.

Sonja said...

I am so proud of you! I couldn't be more proud or happy if it were my own space! I almost feel like sending the CREED back to you as a reward..

ALMOST, but not quite! :)

Great job Lea!! It looks beautiful!

Rosie said...

OH MY DEAR!!!!...this is amazing. What a GREAT work area...I must admit...I am a very pretty shade of "green" when I read posts about BEAUTIFUL studios and GLITTERING work shops...mine? A very paint splattered shop full of projects both on the go and those waiting for "a new outfit"...I am almost always wearing paint...and I don't mean "Revlon"...more like "Benjamin Moore"...and I have consigned myself to the fact that there MUST be much paint sprinkled about my work shop, as that is what it is..."a WORK shop".
...I will just have to visit these pretty studios{yours included}...and get my "Fix" that way...
ENJOY this wonderful space, my dear...love Rosie

Deborah Ann said...

Aahhh...tis beautiful! If I ever get off my butt to tackle a project like this, you can be sure I'll be taking a picture!

Janette@Janette's Sage said...

Well I didn't see it before, but I love it now!!! How inspiring...I have just be awarded a room, since our daughter moved out on her own, and I need to get it organized and enjoy!!!
Enjoy!!!!!!!! Looks great and makes me want to get going on mine.

I hope you are having cooler weather...we are still in the 100's...I think today is suppose to be 104!!!!!!!!

Gotta go fry that egg!!!

Joan Elizabeth said...

I can't believe it ... I'm not sure if this makes me inspired or tired. Spring is coming and my work is slow at the moment so after preparing all the photos from my last monster long trip I just might do some spring cleaning,

High Heeled Life said...

Your craft room looks great!!! Oh I can't wait until I have a permanent home for my writing/craft area .. with the renovations my little travelling boxes are constantly being relocated.. usually after I've become use to everythings new location.. Happy Friday..HHL

Hi Lea,
Wow, you did a fabulous job! It looks wonderful!

I hope you have a restful weekend! :)

Deb said...

It looks so nice. Neat and organized. I'm a neat freak myself! I should take some pics of my office/craft room.

Liane said...

Whew! Awesome job - it looks fabulous!! Such a pretty work space.....

Bree said...

Lea,
It looks absolutely beautiful! Such a wonderful feeling-I am in the midst of the same - I'll post my scary pictures as soon as we're finished (this week I pray!)
I've been having problems w/my computer so I've been reading but haven't been able to post or comment-finally had my short post the other day :) All is well (ups and downs-rollercoaster of life) it does seem the women of our church have been facing spiritual attacks though (physically, emotionally)...
Also, (this is a catch up of comments!) your daughter is absolutely lovely and so talented-congrats to a proud mama!
Praying all is well-your comments always bless me, thank you so much :)
God bless you,
Bree

Emily said...

Is that like your scrapbooking room??

Cheri Bunch said...

Awesome! Could you come over today and we'll start on my catch all room? I am sure that you would find some treasures in there that I would be more than happy to share with you! :)

Doesn't it feel good? Great job, Lea!

Blessings,
Cheri

Calming Calming Calming, came to my mind when admiring your pictures, Lea. i'm pretty sure you will LOVE spending time in that lovely room!

Anonymous said...

wow, i'm impressed. it's beautiful. you deserve a piece of pie and a cup of tea to celebrate, i'll come and join you. ha

myletterstoemily said...

did someone say scrapbooking? no,
not me. it's just for wrapping gifts
and keeping up with correspondence,
etc.

KarenHarveyCox said...

This space looks wonderful. It's so much work to do but so rewarding when it is done. Now I bet you just want to leave it looking wonderful and not begin a new project. So nice to have lots of space to work.

Teresa @ Grammy Girlfriend said...

IT looks fantastic...I need you to come and help me....Love your look

Elizabeth Mahlou said...

Looks wonderful, but it sounds like quite a bit of work!

Sandra said...

Hi Lea, if this isn't a recommendation for sticking to a job until it's completed, I don't know what is! Your room is lovely and yes, I did dangle that there participle but it seemed to work, didn't it? -smile-

koralee said...

Wow...you amaze me ....I love the results my friend. Now I want your sweet little room.
Hugs for a great new week...hope you find time to create in it.

Barbie said...

Beautiful. You have such an eye for organization!

Andrea said...

That looks fabulous! I need someone to light a fire under me! My chaos is organized though, at least that is what I keep telling myself! Nevertheless, I need to get in there and clean up my sewing room. (the study too!)

Mmm said...

VERY cozy indeed. this should end up being a great spot of inspiration to you, right?

Girl Meets Paris said...

Super job! I'm heading to my closet with trash bags in hand! I'm not kidding :)
