clean is happy.

Yesterday was a day to get life back in order.
Cleaning, organizing, sheets washed, you name it.
Andrew was with his dad, so my day was super productive.

So I thought I'd share with you some photos of one of my favorite places in my house.
My bedroom bookcase is stocked with things I love.
Books, photos, decor items, etc...
I like to surround myself with pretty things,
while at the same time keeping things useful for storage and safekeeping.

Aside from my lopsided lampshade, I adore the way it has turned out.
I didn't worry about it being perfect or being super chic, but these are all things I love, that mean something in my life, and that keep me organized as well. The basket on the top shelf contains random little things- extra camera and ipod cords, pens, loose change, little things Andrew gives me, and so on. The jewelry box to the right {from my momma!} houses my most special jewelry and trinkets.

This darling little calendar was a Christmas gift from a friend at a party last year. I love the simplicity of it and am not looking forward to 2011 when I'll have to retire it. :)

I keep my favorite books, magazines and photos on these shelves, along with the random vintage postcard as well. :)

A sign from this lovely lady rounds out another shelf of books {twilight saga alert!} and my sister made me the ceramic bowls I keep some other jewelry tucked away in. I keep things I wear a lot here- my watch, everyday earrings and rings, and I also spy a fab little zippered pouch from this talented girl! :)

A funky vintage vase {which does need a flower or two, I'll admit!} and another of my favorite photos rounds out the shelves. And of course, the Happy Potter books. Love. Love love love. {I am actually just now noticing a small Pokemon sticker on one of my HP books, too. Wonder who is responsible for that??? :) }

Simple.
Happy.
Organized.
And yes, so clean. :)

Happy Monday to you all!!
xo!

I love the way you have the books stacked horizontally and vertically. I will definitely be enlisting your help with the playroom/office-in-a-closet project and austin's big boy room :)
