I am a woman obsessed

And it's your fault..... you know who you are!

Decor Chick
House of Smith's

Because now I have the Badger Bug!!!!!!!!!!!!
The wheels have been turning, I can't stop thinking about it. The office may just have to wait.
Ladies I  want  NEED a pantry remix!

I spent part of the afternoon stalking the aisle of the Dollar Tree the next town over. A much nicer, much larger Dolla-licious Dollar Tree.  I'm pulling together a plan, it's going to take a while.
At some point I'll show you how this

$1 basket is going to transform and ORGANIZE this

I see you're just green with envy over the bevy of nutritious meals this little door hides.
We have a very small pantry, weirdly small for this house now that I think about it. But we do have two. The second one is beyond embarrassing, so that photo will be for another day. I can hear you laughing and I've had all I can take for one day.

I have been a label makin' demon preparing for the great pantry makeover at the Perks house.
Perky Pantry 2010 if you will.

I found this great little Pottery Barn set of glass bottles at Goodwill. Still in the box never opened $4
Buy them you say?? Yes, right away.

I've only used one so far, but I am super in love with it. 
I'll say it.... Sometimes I just open the cabinet to look at it.
If it weren't for my weirdly illegible nomatterwhatIdo handwriting it would be perfect.
I may have to get Hubs to re-write everything at some point. 

And these awesome little babies I picked up at the Dollar Tree!!

I just changed 'em up a bit
and have to give a little HOLLA to Thrifty Decor Chick for setting me on fire with the love all the things I can do with a little vinyl and chalkboard pen.

At some point I'll tell you how these two little bottles led to a night of unloading an entire cabinet.
Which of course meant it had to be re-lined with shelf paper.
Which of course means I fell off the ladder.
Nothing broken, at least not today. But tomorrow I'll be given it my best shot.
I kid, no ER visits while Hubs is thousands of miles away.
I have to wait until he gets home so someone can drive me.

Also today I got a Lovely Blog Award! Awe! Thanks Carol @ The Antique Texan

I'm overly organized, very sensitive, my sister is my hero, this world makes me sad sometimes, fiercely loyal, I will always cheer for the under dog (unless Philly is playin'- any sport) and I am not a morning person.

Thanks so much Brandy for passing the award on to me! That was so sweet of you.
Can't wait to see the pantry redo. Mine is so deep things get lost back there! Plus, my microwave is in there. Weird I know. Previous owners did it.

I have to find and try some chalboard paint stuff. Seeing such great re-dos. My guy has the best printing, cursive writing not so much. I bet he'd be a good tracer if I found a nice script.

So many link parties I need to investigate!
