Burlap Scarecrow

Fall is undoubtedly my season. 
While flowers are fading and leaves change and fall, I seem to come alive.  I particularly love decorating at fall.  Crafts seem to come easier for me at this time of year too.
Instead of a wreath, this year I decided to do something a little different.
Meet Stitch.

Such a friendly face.
This is how he came to be.

Front Door Improvements

There are many ways to dress up your front door inside and out.
I painted the inside of our front door black a few years ago and I still love it.  It provides the right amount of contrast and interest for a small entryway.

Our entry with a white door looks lovely, but a little uninteresting.

Clever Shoe Storage

A while back I posted about a common household problem.  Shoe clutter.  I hate it. 

Nothing irks me more than an entryway littered with shoes.  Well ok, a lot more irks me when it comes to clutter, but this is one of the biggest irks (?).

This bookcase turned shoe cabinet and the end of the hallway solved my particular problem.  As my family enters through the garage this little side entrance landing would get populated with shoes mighty quick.  I needed a storage solution that would get all the shoes off the floor and stored in an organized manner.

Below is the before.

I shall endeavor to explain the presence of my blender again. I keep it in the basement and it was waiting for someone (likely me) to take it down.  This is not where I store my blender.  “Nuff said.

In my post about turning a bookcase into a shoe cabinet you can see more pictures on before and after.    CLICK HERE TO GO TO POST.  Please excuse the rather primitive pictures from vintage 2009 Recaptured Charm.

Are you a victim of  Loafer Litter? Clog Chaos ? Dress Shoe Dislocation ?  High Heel Hodgepodge ?Sandal Shamble ?  Loots of Boots ?   Ok, enough of that.

I’ve curated a HOMETALK collection of 18 very clever shoe storage solutions, (yet not one of them stores a blender.)

Take a peek,  be inspired and clean that clutter.

Together we can conquer Shoe Pollution !
