Living in a small space, I always look for creative decor and organizational ideas.

I love decorating and have a lot in my apartment as a maximalist. 

Today I went searching for some fresh ideas.

One of my biggest challenges is my small kitchen so I love seeing what other people do with their small kitchens.

Like my kitchen, there is no built-in microwave I found @myhouseinsprn. Wish I had open shelves, which always make a kitchen look larger.

Spring is here and what I wouldn't give for a small outdoor space of my own.

It's amazing what you can do with even a small deck or patio. 

@cozyhommes found this wonderful deck. I could sit there for hours with my needlepoint or book.

Love this small but pretty bathroom from the home of  Hannah @thistleharvest

It is so wonderfully light-filled.

If you are a gardener how could you not love this small colorful gardening space from Sue @talesfromwisteriacottage

Although this bed appears to take up most of this small bedroom marzena.marideko has created a cozy spot.

I don't know about you, but I have gotten some great new decor ideas.

What I'm Up To

I think Mother Nature looked at Georgia and said, "wait a minute I think I forgot to give you any winter" and threw some cold weather our way. 

Fortunately, it is short-lived and will be back up into the 70s by Wednesday.

Thursday it is supposed to be 80 so I have plans to spend the afternoon at Cary's doing some porch sitting.

In the meantime, PBS has new episodes of Call The Midwife and Sanditon so I will be watching those. So sad this is the last season of Sanditon.

I have also ordered Debra Crombie's new book from the library, but of course, there is a waiting list. (I ordered it before, but somehow missed the notification and missed out on my turn.) 

If you can't wait to read it you can purchase it from Amazon.

Have a great day and I would love for you to check out my Etsy shop where I sell vintage and antique finds along with digital downloads of beautiful antique artwork.

  1. Some of those small living ideas are very creative! Winter seems to be holding on here in South Dakota as well. Snowing as I write this but upper 30's in the forecast later in the week show promise!

  2. I live in a much smaller house now and have to work to keep it tidy. I am cleaning out sewing supplies today that I don't ever plan to use! I'll donate them and someone else can enjoy them! Happy Spring!

  3. I have learned that living small you have to stay organized and not collect anything you do not use. I like living small and utilizing all my rooms for everyday living. No rooms or space stay unused. Love that black and white bathroom. Hugs. Kris

  4. Loving that stone gardening space, the colors are perfect for spring. It's enchanting!!
