As an avid drinker of wine, there is one thing that has always perplexed me: the wine rack. Who has enough extra wine to necessitate an entire rack? It’s like wine cellars. If you have enough wine to fill an entire cellar, then you are doing it wrong.
As I mentioned recently, CAH and I moved to a new townhouse and we absolutely love it. It is bigger than our last house, in an area we love way more than the last area, and it has a much homier feel. We were lucky enough to get this house when a relative, who we affectionately call “grandma,” offered it to us. With it she left us some stuff that she could not take with her and it has been a like a fun little treasure hunt, coming across trinkets she has collected over the years. We recently came across a cute little wine rack in the garage. It doesn’t really match the decor in our dining room and, as I said, a full wine rack only points out my failure.
I just so happened to find this little gem while I was in the midst of a massive deep clean of our master bath. I had gone to my favorite boutique for home organizing, L’arbre Dollar, or, The Dollar Tree. Since my creative organizational juices were flowing, I saw this little rack and decided to take it down to the bathroom with me and wait for inspiration to strike. Well, it didn’t take long:
Suddenly my hair dryer, curling iron, flat iron and hand steamer, formerly jumbled up in a drawer, had a tidy home that made them easily accessible.
And yes – that is some sweet-ass wallpaper that I am rocking in the background. For those of you with keen eyes who are wondering why there is a telephone in our bathroom…..it’s how we talk to Jesus.
