Closet clean-up isn't a day at the beach

Not much sewing to share right now.

  The new carpet that was put in last week is wonderful!!  Love it!  We went for a darker color than the "light builder beige" that we had and it was definitely the right choice for us.  It looks great and it just makes sense for a busy family with two boys and a dog!

There's still some random closet stuff that has not found it's was back to a permanent spot, but we are cleaning out and cleaning up as we go along.  When you are faced with the contents of all of your bedroom closets at once, it's a bit scary!  It is going a little slower than I'd like, but it will sure be worth it when we're done.  

My quilting supplies and fabric stash have been reorganized too!  WooHoo!

Well, I've never done a post without a picture and I'm not about to start now. 

 No one wants to see pictures of our random closet clutter strewn about.....you know that stuff that you don't know where to put. Stuff you probably shouldn't be keeping anyway....... so, I'm going to show you some beach pictures from our trip to Jekyll Island on Sunday.  

We had an away soccer game there and we took the opportunity to spend some time at the beaches on the island and have a nice dinner after the game.  After all the carpet chaos......and wow was it ever chaos.......and de-cluttering we felt like we deserved a day off!

This is Driftwood Beach on the north end of Jekyll Island.

The end of the island is slow being washed away leaving these trees behind. 

It was an amazing sight.  Much different than I had expected.

Glory Beach is right behind the soccer complex.

Can you see the butterflies flying around in the pictures?  They were everywhere you looked at this beach. 

The 1989 movie "Glory" was filmed here.  I've never seen the movie.   I believe the boardwalk leading to the beach was built specifically for the movie.  Maybe that's one for my Netflix list!

I'm glad you stopped by.  Happy Fall!

That is such a monster of a job!!! I am glad to see you rewarded yourself with a little beach time.

I'm ashamed to say that we've never been to Jekyll Island. I had no idea it looked so different!

It's surprising how much stuff can be housed in a closet, isn't it?

What a gorgeous beach, Michele! It reminds me of something in our neck of the woods on the West coast! Sounds like your remodeling is coming along nicely!
