I think we've all been guilty of it, especially as many of us are collectors. Minor, itsy bitsy cases of hoarding.
Prior to the Mad Tea Party I did a massive cleanup of my spaces.
I made room for a little bench seat to read on :)
I didn't get rid of a single book, that would be sacrilege.
The bedroom is now a pastel pink and white heaven. I am sure many of you saw the picture of my bed in the Mad Tea Party post.
Can I just say I feel soooo much better!
I bet you didn't even know the dresser underneath that old burgundy satin table cloth was yellow and painted with flowers. It's so fresh and clean now!
I had so much JUNK! Clothes I'd never worn nor was I ever going to wear. Things that didn't fit, or didn't look right, or were uncomfortable.
Picture frames. I have never seen so many picture frames in my life! I must have sent about 100 to Value Village.
I promise to be much more cautious about what I buy. I only kept the true treasures, got rid of the dollar store finds that were cluttering up my space, beanie babies that never did become valuable, many old bedspreads, curtains I hated, ugly old purses, I can't think of a single thing I'll miss. I got rid of a lot of things that were just up because I was too busy or lazy to change them. For example the valance curtains that hung above the studio space EEK!
I got rid of 12 big black trash bags total of stuff. Thank God for loves with pickup trucks. There were also 2 separate bags of garbage. Where was all that garbage hiding in my tiny space!?
I think Lady approves :)
Lots of love,
