Day 295 This weeks Favourite Five

Hi readers,

Wednesday night my son was involved in an accident and is currently in Intensive Care so I may be out of action for a while. Hopefully there will be good news about his condition in the coming hours but for now we are just playing the waiting game.

If anyone would like to write a guest post to fill in the empty days I would be grateful. Just send it to me through my Contact Colleen page. I will play catch up with the decluttering when things settle down, hopefully that will be sooner rather than later.

Sorry I only got 2 out of 5 comments up before things got crazy around here so enjoy what I have left for you.

There were so many great posts I enjoyed last week that I had all of these left overs that I wanted to share with you. The one from Be More With Less is the only one actually from this week. Enjoy!
