FINALLY I found a rummage sale with decent prices and some cool things. I didn't buy too much because of the 'stuff' cleanse we are on. I took 5 more miscellaneous bags of things to the thrift store this week, our house is looking better and better. Summer is going to be much more pleasant knowing that our house isn't full of stuff we don't use or want getting dusty and grungy looking. And beyond that Fall will be so nice because the big post "I've-spent-all-summer-outside" clean won't be so tedious.
I was putting on my face cream the other day and walked away from the bathroom, when I came back in I looked at my drawer open to the world. It looked disgusting. It was full of things I don't use, empty containers and tangled hair bands. I pulled the drawer all the way out, dug through it and found so much stuff to donate. I had 13 bottles of nail polish, in real life friends have you EVER seen me with my nails painted? No, then why do I need 13 bottles? I donated them, and the polish remover, and some very unbecoming make up. I ended up with an entire grocery bag full of donations. I kept one tray of face care and one tray of 'jewelry' like hair ties, bobby pins and broaches and it all kind on slides around in there now. The whole room just feels better to me now, lighter.
On to my treasures! Now that the I have broken the seal on Christmas shopping(!) I am now actively looking for goodies, this will be some five year old's ornament this year!

This oil painting which I have no idea where to hang but I love it
