Romania, 1975. nanaCompany I almost feel like I should be hiding this bit of my history because it makes me sound dinosaur-old, but... when I was a kid, my friends and I would walk to a little antiques store after school and buy penny candy to stuff into our backpacks. Then we'd head over to the library to hang out. The beloved store, which we all called the "Red & White," was in a building old as dirt ~ rickety and possibly haunted, just like a lot of the old houses in the small Connecticut town of my childhood.

The dark colours set the tone for a moody picture book, a hint of sadness, yet offset with beautiful bright orange. Operation Organize: How to Keep Your Home Sparkling It’s hard to believe that spring is only a few days away. I hope you’re as excited as I am for sunny skies, spring fashion, and fresh, seasonal produce. And then there’s spring cleaning… I know I might be the only one who actually gets excited at the thought of scrubbing and dusting. But even if you’re not as obsessed with organization as I am, spring cleaning doesn’t have to be scary.
