You guys are no stranger to Megan and her sa-weet blog, Honey We're Home. And not just because it's wildly popular, but also because I seem to talk about her in quite a few posts. I promise there's no funny business going on...just a genuine friendship. Like many others I've met through blogging this year, I feel as though Megan and I go way back.
But we actually met through our blogs, and have only shared laughs over margaritas once. We do call on each other often for home/blog/kid/project advice, and I'm grateful to know her. She really is as sweet as she seems. But be prepared to have your Green-Eyed-Monster emerge...because she's sharing her Mariah-worthy closet today!
It’s great to be visiting Hi Sugarplum today- I feel right at home :) I guess that’s because I’ve had the good fortune to actually meet Cassie in person shortly after I fell in love with her blog. She really is as funny and sweet and cool in person as she is on her blog. I love the humor she adds to her posts, along with her fantastic decor projects. Nothing is tame with Cassie and I appreciate that!
My blog details the home building and decorating process with an adorable 9 month old baby in tow. I started blogging in June 2010 and have been blessed to get to know many readers along the way. The post that got the most comments ever was the one about my closet! I’m lucky to have a space that is 9’4 x 13’2 and have taken advantage of every square inch! I also love organizing, so this closet is a dream come true for me.
Lightweight sweaters are hung using children’s white plastic hangers from Target. I like folding them over the hanger versus hanging them because it keeps the shoulders from getting annoying points.
Pants are hung on wire hangers from Bed, Bath and Beyond and jeans are on small felt hangers that won’t bow in the middle.
(Cassie butting in: I counted her jeans, did you?)
Before the shoe rack was built, I counted my shoes to see how much space I’d need. Then I had the top shelf taken out so I could put boots there.
On the right side of the island, I keep my tank tops, casual long sleeve shirts, and shorts/capri pants.
On the left, storage bins from Target hold belts, bikinis, and scarves. The zebra ottoman is from Hobby Lobby.
The flower vase and candy jar are from Home Goods, the runner from World Market, and the clear bin holding my makeup is from The Container Store.
The pretty make up holders are from Anthropology. And inside the candy jar . . . Hershey Kisses Meltaway. :)
I created the necklace holder behind the door using Command hooks. Purses are stored on shelves.
The light fixture we chose is from Lighting, Inc. in Houston, Texas and is called “Lucia.”
Thanks for having me over Cassie! I really appreciate it.
I know, right?!?! Gorgeous!! I don't think I'd ever emerge from that room. Mama would be locked away with some bubbly, calling out things like, "Dahling, be a dear and bring me some more chocolate!" And it's not just the closet that is the show stopper of Megan's home...every room she's touched is stunning. Go see for yourself.
Tomorrow is Michelle from Ten June's turn to share. I'll also pop in for a New Year's Recipe that is a necessity down here in the South.
