My car is so happy (and so am I) for today it was
able to get back into the garage.

For many years now I have wanted cabinets
to store all my STUFF out of site.
Finally got my wish!

No they are not magic cabinets...
not ALL that stuff went in.
Some went in the attic, some to the thrift store,
some on the burn pit, & some (very little)
went in the trash.


Now I can return to playing in the yard...
my gator (as in John Deere)
has been very lonely.
But before I do, come with me over
to Susan's to see other
BEFORE & AFTER projects.

Boy, do I ever need cabinets in my garage! And a few other rooms, for that matter! :~} I don't think my car has ever been in our garage.
Anyway, Thanks for visiting me today. You asked how I found your blog. I don't really remember ~ one of those rabbit trails I often find myself on. You know ~ I look at someones blog and they mention someone else or have them on their sidebar and I take a peek and here I am! You have a great blog and seem like such a busy lady. I love your pic ~ such a pretty gal.
Hope you come over to see me again at one of my blogs. I'm just getting started on some.
Till then ~
Blessings!

I just found and looked through some of your posts. I love your pictures that go with them. Doesn't that clean garage just make you feel better?! Have a great week!

That looked like a lot of work!!! How come our garages always end up like this? Mr. Whimsy and the little Whimsy's surprised me two weeks ago while I was away. I came home to a clean garage. What a *sigh* moment. Kudos to you for all your hard work!

My church just moved into their new facility and through the process a lot of stuff was on the way to the thrift store and even the trash. These cabinets never made it. I carted home five car, truck, and even a flat-bed trailer of stuff.

Wonderful transformation. Isn't it a great feeling when we organize and clean out? I hardly ever do it though!

Oh I have been wanting all those cabinets too. Why is it so much gathers in the garage and the car winds up outside. Love yours, they are wonderful. Hugs, Marty

Looks great! I bet you feel somehow lighter and less stressed! I know I do whenever I re-organize a space!

Looks good. I need some magic cabinets. The ones I have in my garage are all full, plus a 3 car garage is all full. If I can't find any magic cabinets, I'm afraid I am going to have to purge. Oh how I hate the thought. Mostly the work involved, not in actually getting rid of stuff. But then again, that might be a problem too.

Thanks for visiting my blog & leaving me a nice comment. It really means a lot. Good luck in keeping your garage clean.
