This weekend we packed up the kid's rooms and tackled the pantry. Apparently 2011 was a good year...for spices to expire. This just reaffirms my mission to keep only what we need/use on hand and NO more. To my trash men, I apologize in advance. The bags, they are many.
Even while packing I am seeing that we have far too much for this new smaller space of ours. We are going to have to edit, and I am determined that nothing will get unpacked if there isn't a use for it or we don't love it. For those of you who are local to me plan on a sale sometime in July. A lot will be going!
Quality over quantity. I began reading Sarah Susanka's The Not So Big Life and it's one of those books where I find myself shaking my head "YES" a lot and making the fist pump of agreement. It's like she got into my head and put everything I was thinking into a book.
I thought I would share another charming shot of our soon to be tiny tudor townhouse. This is the kid's bathroom- my favourite feature? That lovely diamond corner window. Swoon-worthy.

The plans are to gut this bathroom and replace the yellow tile with white subway tile on the walls and shower, with a dark large subway tile on the floor. We will use a dresser converted with a sink as the vanity area, then add a lovely mirror and light fixture. The room will get a fresh coat of paint as well.
But that window- she stays right where she is.
