aside from a pair of unbelievable maternity tights that i wear as often as possible, i would never really consider myself a "winner" [note: this relates to winning actual items not my need to be alarmed]. my luck has since changed as i am now the proud winner of a custom dog painting by Meagan Vucovich! Wilson's headshots have been submitted and I cannot wait to share the painting with you all! In the mean time, you should check out her great artwork on Facebook: ...i also love her big abstract colorful pieces as well! 

Personally i think that the dog in the photo below has a slight resemblance to my sweet wilson!

my stash unveiled

everyone has that one place [or two or three...or ten] where you end up bringing things when your doorbell rings and unexpected guests arrive or when you just dont want to figure out a better place to put something! for us that is our guest room [previously office until i started working from home]. that being said while joe was out of town last night, i got down to business!

i started here...there were 200 pairs of shoes in their original boxes and lets just say some of them you will be able to find at the nearly new junior league of atlanta store in the coming days. others are off to the cobbler for repairs, and the remaining keepers should feel very, very lucky!

after the shoe extravaganza we set off to eliminate random drawers full of clothes that are never worn. these also are on their way out of the house or into joe's rag bag in the basement. this in turn gave me great space for many of the other random items in our guest room such as my embossing supplies, fine indian papers, needlepoint, knitting projects, and more!

then i tackled the rest of this...

more of the photos to come of what it looks like afterwards! :) stay tuned!!!
