{Day 20: Loveliness Leads to Happiness}

The entry. Re-decorated as a nursery.
What is the purpose of creating lovely little spaces? Why are we all on this quest to be more organized?


Why bother? Especially when you live with other people who--shall we say--don't share our design vision or same standards of neatness??

Baking cookies and helping Griff w/ homework in my puppy print pj's.
Because we love these little mess makers. And because we want to live in our homes--to bake cookies,  to read stories, and to play.

The living room--and another world.

Another angle.
Even Bela enjoys decorating her house.
Organization makes it possible to have a room full of toys and not feel like it's clutter. You can appreciate the creativity of a little child's imaginary world. And you're not cleaning up while the kids are still playing.

Creating lovely little spaces is the incentive I need to control what is within my reach. To clear the counters and manage the paper. To stay on top of the laundry. To have a routine for getting the dishes from the dinner table to the dishwasher to the cupboard.

Everyone on their own screen. 
Because we share this space. It is our home!


Thanks so much for commenting! I love to read what you have to say. ~Carrie
