Retro Ceramic

I do have to admit: I am collector of retro ceramic pieces. Especially orange and turquoise color. I love them. The collecting habit of mine started with this first one. Then I found a couple more, but I knew, I need six to decorate the bookshelves. When I already found 5 the last one was the hardest. One local antique shop sold them for a fortune, but I insisted and waited until I found the last one at the flea market.

Here are our bookselves:

Get Organised!

Last year I started a new way of time management. The hardest part I found was keeping the house nice and clean without having a full time cleaner. I found a good and cheap solution. The Motivated Moms Chore Planner. This is printable chore lists is an e-book to be downloaded and saved to your computer. You can then either print the full year out at once, print a week at a time or just view it on your computer.

These printable chore lists are just what i was looking for. It tells me exactly what to do each day in my home and I love to check items off a list to feel the sense of accomplishment. It is the best system I ever met! You can see the sample pages of several versions of the planner here.
