A Picture A Day In December: Chaos

My organized friend,
who held my hand through my Kitchen Clean Sweep
came to help me.

As of 4:30 this afternoon, this is what my house looked like.
We are rearranging.
I thought it was important for me to clarify.

The basement is in about the same condition.
Why am I showing you this chaos?
Because then... and only then... 
will you truly appreciate the after pictures when I post them.

And yes, I do realize Christmas is in four short days.

Shoot me now.

  1. I need to borrow your friend...AFTER Christmas! Can't wait to see the afters.

  2. and still.....

    your house looks like a melted lemondrop.

    so beautiful

  3. I have chaos too! We just had a party and I threw a lot of stuff in closets. Lol

  4. I too could do with a friend to help with the clean up before Christmas.

  5. This brings a smile to my face. Thanks for letting me know I'm not alone in chaos. lol. I'm hoping we can find homes for some of it soon, as I do not function optimally in it for long... :)

  6. My dining room table looks just like this.

  7. Are you sure that you don't live in my house? Less than a week before Christmas and the painters have just left after painting the LR/DR and 2 bedrooms (I have a very small house). Now the storage rm (oops, sorry .... daughter's bedroom) must be cleared out & cleaned today as she arrives home tomorrow. Hmmm ... it might be easy to clean out my 12"x12" storage shed (haha).
    I love your blog have have followed it for awhile - I just don't usually comment.

    Merry Christmas from PEI

  8. I had to become a follower. I NEED to see the after picture. My before looks just like that...I need some motivation!

  9. For a moment there I thought you were at my house!

  10. I love the snow that I see outside your window. Even in the chaos, your home looks beautiful and the floors looks sparkly clean. I love your house!

  11. so envious that you're involved in this level of cleanout/cleanup prior to christmas ... boy could we ever use a purge right about now!! i repinned your 'declutter calendar' on pinterest today - really hoping i can do it by myself ... what a gift for you to have a friend helping out, really helps when it comes to tough keep/donate decisions!! Can't wait for the after shots!!
