Should it stay? Or should it go?

I am seriously thinking about redecorating this place. It has become so cluttered with stuff that it is just too much. How do we end up collecting a bunch of stuff we don’t need? I know that some of it came from gifts and such, but the rest I seem to have bought and I have no clue what I was thinking when I did. Nothing seems to match now. It is all a Hodge podge of stuff everywhere. It is time to use that Japanese thing, where you hold something and if you haven’t used it in a year, get rid of it!

A yard sale will help thin things out and also help pay for the paint and such as I redecorate. I do have to figure out what I want to keep and what style I want to have in here. I really like the rustic look and I have a few things that can be re-purposed to that effect. There is some paint that makes things look older than they are. I am going to use some of that on a few things and see how they look afterwards. We shall see how it all turns out, but if it’s a bust I’ll get rid of it and looks for something else to replace it.

I Love Rose Gold Jewelry

I don’t normally see a lot of Rose Gold Jewelry. I don’t know why I don’t see a lot of it, other than it must not be as popular as white and yellow gold. I actually like the Rose Gold jewelry better than white and yellow gold! So I was really excited to see some Rose Gold rings among the selection of stackable expressions from joyjewelers.com! I was surprised to see them call it “pink gold” because I’ve always heard it called “Rose Gold” up until now.

Blue and red

Ever since I can remember, blue has been my favorite color. I think that it has something to do with the fact that it was my father’s favorite color, and since I doted on him that became my favorite color too. Although I can remember one time asking my father what his favorite color was and he replied it was “sky blue pink.” Well, they don’t make crayons or markers in sky blue pink, so blue was the color that we stuck with. I would have to say that royal blue is my favorite shade of blue.

Recently I discovered that I look really good in the color red, so I started to buy a lot of red clothes. I try to keep my closet organized by colors, and I have bought a lot of those hangers that help you maximize your closet space, putting five garments in the space of one. I’ve tried to keep all of the similar colors together. Yesterday when I was rummaging around in the closet, trying to make sure that all of the hangers were properly optimized I started to wonder why when you add white to the color red, the resulting color is called pink. But if you add white to the color blue, it is still called blue. What’s up with that?

Breathtaking table linens

I have gotten really tired of the table linens on the tables in my parlor, so I decided to go shopping online and see if I could find something with some “Wow” factor that I could use to replace them. I wasn’t quite sure what I was looking for, but when I saw the sequined over-lay tablecloths for sale at the premier table linens website I was pretty sure that I found exactly the right table-cloth for the job! I can’t wait to hear the reaction of my friends once they see the tablecloth I have ordered!

Great fashion for under $20

Women and fashion are a funny thing. Most women hate wearing clothes that are out of fashion, and I have to admit that when I open my closet doors and look at my clothes, there are quite a few outfits in there that although I love them dearly I won’t wear them because they are not the current “in style” fashion.

I’m so pleased that I’ve discovered a great website that sells discount fashion! Everything on the website sells for $17.95 or less! How great is that! I’ve been looking at some of their great clothing to see what I’d like to buy for the upcoming winter season. Since styles change so frequently, I like to buy cheap clothing when I can find styles I like.  Why spend hundreds of dollars on something that is going to be out of style next year?
