Beautifully Organized: Bobby Pins and Elastics

Beautifully Organized: Bobby Pins and Elastics

On most days, I tend to put my hair up in a pony tail - any of you do the same? Here are a few ideas for keeping all those bobby pins and hair elastics organized and easily accessible:
Designate a specific spot for each type of hair accessory so that when you need an item you know where to find it. (1) A small clear vanity jar can beautifully hold hair elastics. (2) A paper clip holder works great for bobby pins since the magnetic ring makes them easy to dispense. (3) A larger container with dividers is great for separating out different sizes/types and for holding larger quantities. (4) Magnetized boxes and magnetic strips (5) adhered to the inside of a cabinet door are perfect for small spaces.
Where do you like to store your hair accessories?
Happy Organizing!

Wood Tables...Would you dine with me?

I happen to love rustic wood tables...
They offer complete warmth and a sense of captured
conversations of years gone by.

2012 Pantone Color of the Year: Tangerine Tango


Ashlee Raubach

Is it orange? Is it red? I don't know, but I LOVE it! This is actually one of my favorite colors  normally I don't use it in my home, but for accessories, such as....
My New Spring/Summer Bag
MICHAEL Michael Kors - Hamilton East/West Satchel (Tangerine)

 and often times my nails feature this punchy shade. It gives off such great energy!
 Sounds about right to me! What do you guys think? Do you approve?

Have a happy weekend everyone!! :)

19 Kids and Counting!! The Duggars'

The Duggar family, which has become famous for having–you guessed it–19 kids

Duggar Family in front of Arkansas house

Since this top photo was taken, the Duggars' have had two more children.

The Great Room has 2,000 square feet and features an open family room, kitchen, and dining area:

The Kitchen:

Duggar Diner

The dining room table seats 20 and has a beverage center handy (I would love it if we added one of these to our dining room!):

The large laundry room has four washers and four dryers. Nearby is a giant closet where all of the clothes for the family are stored. Pretty smart idea considering the amount of laundry they must do. The kids have to go to the main closet to get their clothes each day.

 Trust me, if I had 19 children, I would need pharmaceutical assistance in order to smile as much as Michelle does.
