I finally cleaned out two drawers in our dining room. When we moved into our house, they became a dumping ground for random things I wasn’t sure what to do with…. and didn’t want to look at. I genuinely can’t remember the last time I had even opened the cabinet to access the drawers. In what might be the beginning of a “nesting” phase, I went to town cleaning them out. I will spare you the details of the contents of said drawers, but trust me when I say it was an absolute hot mess.

The great news is that we now have two very large, beautifully empty spaces to work with!!! I started to reorganize our collection of table linens, which has grown substantially since we moved into our house. Right now the linens are split between a basket stored under our table and baskets down in the basement. It’s hard to know what exactly we have to work with since they’re not all that organized. I think I’m going to dedicate one of the drawers for table linens so I can quickly see what I have and get inspired to set a beautiful table, instead of reaching for the first things at the top of the basket over and over.


Anyway, that’s a “project” I have queued up for our next rainy weekend day. But it absolutely has me inspired to lust over all beautiful table linens available right now. I have a feeling I am not going to be able to resist adding to the collection once I have it all organized.

(Is this what 31 looks like, by the way? Getting inordinately excited for table linens? Because…. I am.)
