I was so bummed out when I read last night that Mothering magazine is no longer in circulation. I've been reading it for years...at least 13. I have kept many of my old issues and love having them by my bed. I've written before of my addiction to magazines..and now so many of them are no longer. Do we really want to live in a world with no paper? Is it just a matter of time before we read everything on the computer/phone/ipad? Will our grandchildren look at newspapers and magazines and laugh..just like we do now when we think about having to actually get up out of our seat to change the television channel? I need my books and magazines! Anyway, I'll miss Mothering.

See that wallpaper? The GIANT flowers! I've been thinking about papering one wall in my family room in this...
I think it would be fun! Very soon the big honkin tv and all the video games that go with it will be heading south to the basement. Hallelujah! Eventually we'll get a smaller tv for the family room but I'd kinda like to see how long we can go with out it.
So in every house we've lived in..and there's been many..we've ripped the doors off all the closets. I'm not sure when this obsession started but it's continued in this house. This is my laundry room/powder room. The doors were those stupid accordian doors and I can't stand those. What were builders thinking in the 80's.
Hannah's closet. I guess I should have propped Kit up to a little more lady like position.
And then of course there's my pantry. I think those were the first doors to come down.
And here is our mudroom closet that needs to be painted. I also need more hooks and storage.
I wonder if I'm the only weirdo that takes the doors off their closets?
