OH What Makes a Homekeeper's Heart Flutter!!

Isn't this the cutest broom set you've EVER seen?? (Not that I spend my time comparing brooms....much....) I was at Home Goods yesterday and came upon this wonderfully delightful little set and bought them for my new house! We needed a new one anyway so I thought, "It might as well be REALLY cute!" I have never had one of these thingies that you put your broom and mop in but the house already has it! The seller also left a newish mop...something I needed as well! I also bought an ironing board cover with roses on it but I'm not going to put it on the ironing board until we actually move. It's also pretty. HEY...anything to actually encourage me throughout the day HAS to be a good purchase!
I made vegetable soup this week and used this little chopper to speed up the preparation time! I originally bought it to chop up baby food but it comes in handy to chop small amounts of carrots, onions, etc!

TA DA!!!! I got one of the bathrooms at the new house clean! I went to FOUR different stores to look for a new shower curtain but #1. I couldn't find an affordable one. #2. I couldn't find one I was in LOVE with!! (I know what I would like to have but I haven't been able to find it! ) So, I purchased just a cute plastic one for now. I'm not "thrilled" with the blue in the bathroom...but I like it well enough so we are keeping it for now. I think the seller had just painted it and since we have so much to do in the new house and in the old house, not having to paint that room is a blessing! It looks bright and "happy" to me!
I also bought hand towels for $1 each at Bed Bath and Beyond. (The kids aren't used to sharing the bathroom so I'm trying to make things as simple as possible...use clean hand towels...pick up after yourself...etc.... Sometimes I just need to "spell it out" for them!)
Well, Roger is urging everyone to get up and moving this morning...it is a "Work Day" at our new house! (So I'd better go!! "Blogging" does not count as work, evidently!!)


  1. Oh dear! Hope you find enough time to keep sharing from your house adventures. I am quite hooked.

  2. Hi Beth! Love your cleaning set and Home Goods is one of my favorite places to go. That was the last place our son took me when they were home for the holidays. Your new-old home is wonderful. The inside has so much warmth to it. Sorry you missed the grandsons first steps. They grov up so fast. Our new grandchild to be is a boy. We can hardly wait until the last of June. I just wish they were not so far away, but thank goodness for webcams.
    Love you,

    Such exciting things are happening in your life!

    Keep the posts coming!

    What do you mean, blogging isn't working?! ;-)
