The Purge of 2012



I'm making my way through Monkey Grass Hill, purging all things I don't love or use. Last week I chipped away at my shed one day --my curb looked like Sanford and Son's yard. Everything was gone within a few hours though. Next up was my closet. If you're looking for cashmere sweaters, you better start shopping wherever Purple Heart is selling stuff. They picked up about six bags of clothes.  

I don't need this stuff


It's so satisfying to get rid of things. There's something to be said for empty space.

This week I'm chipping away at my office/studio. I need to make room for more inventory. I'm sorry, but my jewelry is too good to leave at the curb or in a bag for a donation pick up. 
But I will be practically giving it away!


This Friday, April 20th I'm having a jewelry clearance sale at my house.   
Everything will be PRICED TO SELL. 
 I think I'll also try out something new. I'll have my stones, clasps and vintage brooches out, so if anyone wants to try their hand at designing a custom piece you can pick your materials and place an order.  

If you're local e-mail me for an address or more information.

The cute little invitation was made using an  i phone App called Post.

I have been thinking about another big purge as well. I'm starting to think I would like to live with the most minimal of things.
Oh those trays of jewelry are lovely, making me drool!!

It is that time of year to go through, clean out and get rid. I only with I were near by. The invitation is absolutely precious. I agree....no putting your beautiful pieces at the curb. Hugs, Bonnie

Double darn! 95 on Fridays is something I won't do. If you change your mind and host on a Saturday let me know.

Hi Julie,

I have been doing the same purging for 2 weeks now. It is such a relief to get rid of the clutter! You are only about 3 hours from me but I don't think I could brave the Friday traffic either. Your jewelry is lovely, I especially like the bumble bee necklace! Best wishes for your sale.
