“Have nothing in your homes that you do not know to be useful or believe to be beautiful.” 
1834. William Morris. 

Would you join me, as I discover and collect little inspirations along the way? 


  1. Brit, I'm SO excited you're doing this! I love that I'm not the only person out there who really enjoys doing things like this- blogging, living a healthier lifestyle, etc!

    And I agree, I never would have been motivated enough to do these things before Ayden was born- not in a million years! A lot has changed in me since he was born. Life is just that much more important!

    Great first post, I'm looking forward to more of them!! :)

  2. Thanks Abby! I'm glad you feel that way too- I think that is just one of the many miracles of having a baby.

  3. I'm SO glad you started this! What a creative title too. I couldn't come up with anything better than "Lizzie's Blob" for my title - haha! Love that William Morris quote too :)

  4. I'm excited you are doing this too! I always have the urge to de-clutter our home and lifestyle and I think reading more blogs about people actually doing it will help me take the next step! Thanks for directing me to the Live Renewed blog. Because of that I just decided to do cloth wipes along with my cloth diapers!

    I am looking forward to continuing the journey to healthier living and less cluttered life!

  5. Lizzie- I really liked the name Lizzie's Blob! Made me smile :)

    Vanessa- Cloth wipes are so easy to add to your diaper laundry! They don't increase your size load since they're so small. I use a spray bottle with a wipe solution and spray his booty directly! I didn't when he was brand new, but I tried once he was a little older & he didn't mind at all. He just smiles-like a guy would! I have some homemade ones that I received as a shower gift, but I've heard that those thin baby washcloths are perfect since they're terry/scrubby on one side & softer on the other.

    Love that you doing cloth!

  6. Brit, I am so excited you started a blog :) I Can't wait to follow you!! I have one as well :)
