a call to order

Every now and then I find the very areas of the house that are supposed to help keep us clean get a little messy themselves. A good example of this is under my kitchen sink or my laundry closet. Because they are not in plain view, they tend to get neglected. Well, it doesn’t take much time to get things back in order. I love storing things in tall jars because I can pack more into small areas. Our Numbered Glass Jars are just the thing for storing my Cascade dishwasher pacs, laundry powder and dryer sachets. Our Wire Gathering Baskets always come in handy for cleaning supplies. Here, I’ve tucked away the dusting supplies, making it easy to travel around the house come cleaning day. It’s these little details that make me happy, because I get antsy with clutter and disorganization. Happy cleaning!

OH I'm in love with how the cascade looks in the jar. I'd REALLY like to do that if I could handle having them on my kitchen counter (I'm sure the clutter might make me nuts even if it's as gorgeous as those jars are!). I'm curious, what is a drying sachet? ...that sounds wonderful!

Hey Robyn,

I added the link for the dryer sachets, as they are wonderful. They make the whole house smell good, too!

I don’t know how I’ve missed your beautiful blog/site since I started blogging (August) but I am so glad I stumbled on it today From Beyond My Kitchen Window. I absolutely love it and I am so glad you look for more organic vintage, country looks vs. contemporary. Perfect :) I’m so excited I found you--off to look som more.
