A vintage wire canning basket with jars and a vintage thermos. How cute is THAT?
I've started a new blog called...THE WELL ORDERED LIFE! I've always been an organizer at heart but in the past few years as I began collecting more vintage items, things seemed to be getting a bit out of hand. I don't like clutter but I LOVE vintage treasures! Do these go together? Also, with the arrival of  new baby grandkids we started a collection of toys again so where am I going to put all the toys?

We've retired in the past several years and now our days are not as  structured.  We find that we need to maintain SOME structure in order to stay on top of things. If we don't we get a bit, well...lazy. There...I said it!

So I've found that I need to re-order some things in my life and I started the blog to share ideas about organizing and ordering our lives.  I hope you'll join me  HERE and share your thoughts.

I will also be sharing vintage organizing for my Hob Nobber vintage lovers. I'm finding lots of fun, creative ideas! The vintage wire canning basket with jars above can be set on a casual kitchen table and silverware could actually be "stored" on the table for convenience. I'll try to scout out these gems and put this together to sell  at our Hob Nobber sale in September.

Another creative idea I found is this old doll house which is being used  here as storage in a laundry room. Now if my adult daughter would give up her doll house which is still being stored at OUR house,  I could do this! Or maybe I'll be on the lookout for one when I go hob nobbing for treasures. I also love the old table being used as an ironing board.

So I'm excited to find vintage storage ideas to share as well as ideas on how to order the days of our lives.

Remember to go HERE to see my new blog and to follow me!
