Organizing VS. Cleaning

If we're friends on Facebook, then you know I have been going completely insane purging and organizing everything in my house.

Seriously, it's been therapeutic. I could honestly do this for a living.

I LOVE to organize-EVERYTHING. I adore all the big organizing blogs like iheartorganizing and A Bowl Full of Lemons . I drool every time I am on them.

Now, please note that I said that I love to ORGANIZE. The word "cleaning" is not involved, I assure you.

I HATE to clean. Baseboard, laundry, dusting, etc. These things are not my friend. If you come to my house, things my be in place...but please don't come with white gloves. 

I couldn't tell you the last time I dusted my ceiling fan, and my windows have little grimy hand prints all over them from the tinys that live here.

I am working on this though. I am still on a journey to LOVE homemaking. Cooking? Yes. Organizing? Yup. Beautifying my home? Of course. Cleaning? Eh. Like I said, I'm working on it.

Speaking of working on it, here is a picture (via Instagram) of my 'new' shelf in my bathroom. 

Whatcha think? I put a bunch of my old cameras, including my mom's Brownie one, on there as well as a few vintage mason jars filled with old buttons. The top stop-sign looking picture is the "I stand at the door and knock," painting of Jesus. My grandma hand a larger print of this, so when I saw this picture at a thrift store, I had to snatch it up.

That's all for now. I've gotta get this house cleaned ASAP because we are going to the mountains this weekend!!! I am super excited! AHH!!! An autumn vacation never happens.


  1. Um, this sounds exactly like me. I LOVE to cook. I LOVE to organize. I LOVE to decorate. Clean? Not so much. Only what is necessary.

  2. I love organizing too! SO much fun :) I love how your shelves turned out!

  3. I think I'd take organizing over cleaning any day-- although I'll have to come back here regularly for inspiration as I have the attention span of a gnat and so I do a sort of "half" job at organizing and other housey tasks. =)

    Following ya now and forever from the GFC Hop. If you'd please... I'd love it if you'd join me for the ride at


  4. It's true, organizing is way more fun than cleaning--and definitely leaves you with a better feeling. Actually, reading your post is reminding me that I'm supposed to clean the bathroom today... :(


Who doesn't love comments? It is just like Christmas. So go ahead, send me a gift! :)
