A peek into my madness

After laughing in the general direction of THIS madness for some time, I finally rolled up my sleeves and got busy making some progress in here. About an hour later the room looks like this:

It's progress :) The bookshelf is a new addition (previously in another room.) I'm off to work some more! I'm struck with a cleaning streak and must take myself up on the offer ;P


  1. Carissa,

    i am SOOOOO loving your book shelf
    which looks like a little it???

    look how much you accomplished in
    one hour?!?!

    you go girl!!!!
    love the sweet butterflies beautifully strung!

    thank you for giving us a little peak into your "madness"!!

    happy cleaning sweets!


  2. Thanks Kolleen :P It looks like a little boat, but it's not a real boat. I think it's supposed to either hang on the wall or at one point came with a stand. I found it at the thrift store and couldn't resist :)

    It was all just a bunch of shifting around of things. You should see the pile-o-mess that's still there! lol

    Thanks for the smooches and encouragement :)

  3. Well it looks like you are accomplishing your madness, Every girl has this! I love your new shelf.Have fun,maybe you'll find a buried treasure.

  4. Yea! I love your re-organized-not-as-messy-mess! I've been working on a similar process in my art studio. I can't believe some of the stuff I found in there! Real treasures, to be sure. Party on, Wayne!

  5. oooh, this is a good reminder
    of how we can get a lot done
    when we roll up our sleeves
    & how we must be in the madness
    to come through to
    i love seeing
    your collection
    of cool stuff
    & am always
    so happy
    to see
    a new post
    from you!
    lots of love.

  6. i just had to drop in
    & share with my sweet friend in lingering
    that i recently created an art piece
    about orange blossoms!
    (i'll likely post it in july).
    i'm smelling it with ya, sista!

  7. I love this, it looks inviting, creative, warm, and unique! I wonder what butterflies mean to you...I love butterflies and feel a strong presence of a passed grandmother when one comes to visit me. Love and light - Amy Lee

  8. Buffy, Ahoy!

    Lezli, Party on Garth!;D

    Amy Lee,
    Thank you for sharing your story. I know how important grandmothers are! As a child I was always drawn to butterflies. As an adult I love them still, especially their symbolism :)

    How delicious! I will linger in the anticipation and think of you as I smell the breeze here!

    I love your blog too! Your stories are incredible. Thank you :D


  9. Love that your mannequin wears a lampshade!
    Digging your boat shelf and the picture of Marilyn.
