Monday Morning {P}Inspirations

Good morning sweets.  Ugh, what a weekend, my poor little Kara was having an epic battle with a flu bug and was cranky, tired, and wouldn't eat the majority of the time.  I missed a bridal shower and a birthday pool party to stay home and take care of her.  At first I was uneasy with the changed plans (I'm weird like that) but then I looked on the bright side (imagine that!) and realized that it is nice excuse to slow down and let all prior responsibilities wait.  She is taking a nap as I type, which she never does, and I am hoping this is the final day of her not feeling well.

Here are a few home and organization related {p}inspirations for you today.  It is fitting after spending four days at home and realizing I really need to whip it into shape around here.  I find myself craving simple, highly organized and functional spaces lately.

I love hte beach and collecting driftwood and this is such a lovely and simple way to display it.

Leave it to Martha to come up with the genius idea of storing pot lids on a towel bar.

I love this simple way to spruce up a pot and identify your herbs at the same time. I planted basil, rosemary and mint together in the same big pot this year, and the mint has pretty much taken over. Next year I will definitel give it it's own space.

This is such a pretty way to organize bathroom staples. If I had room in one of mine I would do this in a heartbeat.


I am completely obsessed with this open pantry and how simple and organized it is.  It's from a newly discovered and now fast favorite blog called keep it simple keep it fresh. I tracked down the storage piece to being from Restoration Hardware, but it is pretty steep at $1995. Not to mention I have nowhere really to put it! I do love it though.
