September To Do List, August Recap And Some Misc. Bidness

FROM THE RIGHT BANK | www.fromtherightbank.com

Can you believe tomorrow is September? Where did the summer go? Here’s what I got done on my August to do list. (In case you’re new to my blog, I keep monthly to do lists and revisit it at the end of each month.)

AUGUST TO DO LIST

1. Toss magazines older than 1 month. [I think I need to give this up. At least for a while. I'm NEVER going to catch up.]

2. Clean the rest of the filters in the house.

3. Organize important documents and papers.

4. Move bookshelf into guest room.

5. Move sideboard to kitchen area.

6. Hang Tord Boontje curtains. [I still can't decide where I want it.]

7. Move striped rug back to the living room.

So I didn’t get to everything but I actually did something not on the list which was to organize my dressing area.

I even broke out the camera and shot some details.

And by popular request (and by “popular” I mean like 3 people), here’s a little shoe porn. And yes, I’m a label whore. I admit it.

I couldn’t resist the gold heel/silver strap combination.

And these are now the highest shoes I own. LOVE.

I decided that I’m not going to tackle any big projects in September and instead do a lot more organizing.  Here’s what I’m hoping to get done.

SEPTEMBER TO DO LIST

1. Organize important documents and papers.

2. Organize pantry. I just can’t seem to keep it neat. Am I the only one?

3. Organize vanity drawers; toss old makeup.

4. Organize master bathroom drawers.

5. Organize travel toiletries. Prepare a set ready to go.

6. Organize office supplies.

On another note, what do you think of the new banner? For the moment, I’m kind of liking just the simple black text with no images. But I’m also thinking I might like to have something designed.

And finally in wrapping up August, I’d like to thank Macy at Me Oh My and Trish at Under Lock and Key for blog awards this month. Thank you girls, I really appreciate it!

Getting The House (And Wardrobe) Ready For Fall

FROM THE RIGHT BANK | www.fromtherightbank.com

Are you thinking about fall yet? Crystal at Plush Palate is running a series this month called Get Ready/Get the Look and she asked me for my tips for getting our homes and wardrobes ready for fall. I actually have a really simple, foolproof strategy for transitioning from summer to fall so may I send you over there today to have a look? And can you guess what color I’m favoring?

I’m also working on a new banner so please excuse the mess today!
