O is for Organizing {and then shopping}

What Did I Do This Weekend, you ask?
A few weeks ago I shared an embarrassing confession about this:
YES, those are were my haphazard kitchen cabinets!
So, to save-face I spent the weekend fixin’ up the joint a bit, and NOW…
My cabinets are no longer a disgrace.
And because I was on an organizing high, I moved on to my craft area in the garage. It went from pure madness:
To pure awesomeness:
{All that’s missing is a Cricut machine, *sigh*}
Then, as a reward for all my hard work, I went shopping {antiquing to be specific}.  I hadn‘t been in years and I forgot how glorious antiquing can be.  There is this quaint little antique mart where I live and if you’re a local you really should head over {I’m thinking Girls Day ladies?}.
{Love it}
And my knob obsession continues.
This reminded me of Baby W {so sweet}.
Antique riding cap.
{and I just so happened to be dressed like a jockey}
Bench in my {favorite} color.
Pillows = Happiness
Most awesome sign ever.
{have you noticed that “awesome” is kinda my word}
And I bought these to add to my collection.
All in all–my kind of weekend!
Where was Baby W this weekend, you ask?
Well, in addition to being a trooper during our antiquing outing–Lil W enjoyed his favorite Baby E DVD in his couch cushion barrier while Momma organized the kitchen:
And now Lil W would like to leave you on this note:
Are you smiling?
And now a quick shout out to Jane at Finding Fabulous for her awesome She’s So Crafty feature on Little Miss Momma this weekend! I am so excited that she picked me–in the words of Sally Fields, “you like me, you really like me”. Go check out her fabulous blog and her kind feature of my Canvas Stencil Tutorial.

    I'm having my second We're Organized Wednesday link party this wednesday. I would love it if you have the time to link this post. There's going to be a giveaway too. Could you send me some of those blue and green crystal knobs? LOL I'm having a heck of a time finding them where I live.

    What a fabulous and productive weekend! Looks awesome. Those are some great shops. I really need to reorganize my tupperware, it's a mess and I'm realizing that little trolls are carrying it all off because it is disappearing! That calls for shopping…

    I just love this post!

    I am so glad that you reward yourself after a long day of organization… That antique market looks like a blast!

    I'm moving soon and there will need to be many rewards to motivate myself to pack – maybe antiquing! 😀

    Thanks for linking to We're Organized Wednesday. I still can't believe your craft area in the garage. Mine wouldn't look like that if it were in the garage. I hope to see you again in 2 weeks.

    […] We all have that special place.  The one we go to when we want to be worry-free.  The place we go to recharge.  Mine, as strange as it sounds, is the Antique Mart around the corner from my house.  Which is why I have written about it so many times, like here and here. […]

    Herve Leger, Oktoberfest outfit people tend to wear our collections together, as one piece. But I like them as separates; it’s almost cooler,” she says. “I would put this jacket with a pair of jeans or a work skirt. And of course it all but if you’re in L.A.
