Weekend greetings! What are your plans for Father’s Day weekend? We’re spending most of it around the house, gardening, barbequing, and then attending a local play. Summer is in full swing and we’re loving it, the way the light reflects off the boats in the local harbor, and how the established perennials and the vegetables we planted seem to double in size each day. Pumpkins, beans, tomatoes, herbs, and more, don’t you love the smell of the leaves on your fingers after you touch them?
I’m on an organization kick, remembering that behind my office closet doors which I’m replacing soon are a bunch of ugly boxes and bins that are as boring as can be. Practical yes, pretty? Oh no. This perfectly beautiful home office nook makes me drool and has inspired me to move forward with my own office organization plan.
It has also prompted a new series called “favorites under fifty (dollars)”; today’s spotlight is on attractive storage bins. Solid bins, baskets, and boxes are easy to come by, their clean lines bring calm to a space as evidence by the above, but I also love those bins with pattern or pizazz, these under $50 picks have that little something extra, perfect for a home office, kid’s room, or anywhere you need something snazzy in which to store your stuff.
