My China Cabinet – Display the things you like instead of just storing them

Special Project for January is My Whole House Declutter—I am working in my Guest Rooms this week. I plan to clear out the closets and refresh the rooms.  February is devoted to my attic and March is devoted to my garage and deck—beginning to get ready for Spring.

Have a Monday filled with love, hugs, and smiles,

Mary
