Field Lilies has been making space again and she's been inspiring me.
Even though I haven't posted about it, I’ve been accumulating things for the thrift store:
Three ziplock bags with filled with greeting cards that I will never use.
Assorted small frames
Assorted magnets I’ll never use again
Some booklets of iron-ons for crafting
Several books we won’t finish reading
A nice navy blue checked shirt of my husband’s; it’s a very large XL and makes him look as if he’s lost 50 pounds. (He keeps pulling it out of the closet and wearing it and someone invariably asks him if he’s okay.)
A blue glass swan
A Power Mate Jr. attachment to a vacuum cleaner we no longer own
A white glass vase with a motif of pink roses
These things came from here, there, and everywhere around our house, but the last three above -- swan, vacuum attachment and vase -- came from the linen closet, which I am focusing on this week. Everything listed below came from there, too.
To our cottage —
A package of green mesh shelf liner
A towel rack we aren’t using here
To the trash —
A huge bag of assorted towels, baby blankets, etc. that got stained with some unknown substance while stored on the lowest shelf of the linen closet.
An old shower curtain I’d been saving to use at the beach — it got stained too
A tapestry rug with a fun design of lighthouses; barely used, but the rubber backing has disintegrated, so …
I have the lowest shelf of the linen closet now fully decluttered. There are three or four more to go. I've snatched things off them here and there, but hopefully I can get the rest of the closet completely decluttered this week. We will see!
