Merry Welcome to my blog page! 

I am so excited to go through this journey with you.  As we go along this path, I plan to post on a frequent basis. I don't want you to get bored, but at the same time I also don't want to bombard you with postings.  Because to be honest, I'm kinda private.  A woman of few words.  But with that being said, my topics might range from the personal, to decorating, to my experience with recent services and purchases, all the way to general musings on life.  I do hope that you will want to come back for more!  Thanks so much for stopping by.

Without a Doubt, Add a Roll-out

I have to admit, downsizing can be very challenging. Where do I put this? There isn't enough space for that... Talk about decluttering - hello! My home before this one was what I thought would be pretty close to a forever home. Or at least a long-time home. So I put a lot of money into remodeling it and making it all I could hope for. But, as commonly happens, life changes and we are forced to change with it. After the death of my husband, I really didn't have the desire to stay once my daughter accepted a job offer here in Arizona. Naturally I followed her out west. And I decided I wanted a home with not exterior maintenance. So I opted for a villa. While I love my neighborhood, I like my home. There were many changes I was tempted to make but because spent so much on my previous remodel, I decided to tread slowly here until I know its where I want to stay. For now I am making do with what I have. Which isn't bad at all. With that being said, of course there are things I truly miss. Like my walk-in pantry.


How do I go from that to this? Well, I just make do. And of course roll-out shelves make things so much easier. I can find whatever I need with a gliding shelf. And of course I still use my stackables, my lazy susan's and my bins.

And you know what? It works. Admittedly, this could be because its just me, so I don't need to keep a lot of food in my pantry. Or maybe it's because I know how to maximize my use of space. Really though, I have all I need!
