Under the Grill Organization

Standard

It’s always  winter time here in Australia so it means there will be less barbecues outside and outdoor space will not be used often.  However, lately, I felt the itch in looking after what is under our grill. My husband always cleans the grill after Bbq parties but as we know, cleaning comes first then organization.  So this is where I come in now.  A bit of “TLC”..tender loving care from me. Let me show you first how it looked like before:

Then I thought of some metal tins I have inside, one is a metal tin for biscuits which I painted with charcoal paint before and never used it.  Now, I have decided what to write:

charcoal proj 4 grillThis is exactly right for some of our Grill accessories. Then I used another larger metal bin which I originally used in our bathroom but as per suggestion of my husband, it needs to go from its original position since metal and water are a perfect combination for rust formation.  Now, it has a new spot.  So this is what you can find now under our grill:

Wherever you are, whatever season you’re into, happy organizing from the “world down under”.

A BIG Thank You

Standard

I feel so blessed because one of my followers, Beth from Chic Envelopements ( I’m a follower of hers as well because I want to journey with her as she joined the refashion wagon and I want to witness her creative creations ) chose me to be the recipient of her giveaway, fabric flowers, one her own DIY projects.  She announced it last April 9 on her post “and the winner of the fabric flower is…”

Last April 4,  she asked her followers to leave a comment on how we found her and what can she do to make our visits worthwhile.  She also announced that she’ll pick a winner to receive her giveaway as a way of her gratitude for the support and encouragement she has been receiving.  After I read the post, I left a comment straight away not only for the giveaway but because I would like her to know as well how I found her and why I am following her.  Actually, I found her blog after she followed me, then when I visited her site, the first thing that I read was the rustic chic wedding of her gorgeous daughter and my heart was captured after that.  The wedding is just beautiful and more importantly, I felt that she is a loving mother, a mother who shared one of the most meaningful life events of her daughter.  For me, that is so essential so I followed her and will always be.

Since that time, we’ve been encouraging each other through our simple yet straight from the heart comments.  So, once again, a BIG thank you to Beth from Chic Envelopments.  Greetings from the world down under…Australia!!  Cheers mate.
