get ready for LOTS of pictures!!
i didn't even take a picture of EVERYTHING i pulled out of the closet! got so busy that i forgot!!
in my efforts to , i sorted a huge garbage bag of shoes & clothes to donate. it's all stuff i've been hanging on to forever. i didn't even think twice, i just kept telling myself, "let it go, let it go!"
now the closet has just what i actually wear & is so much better.
did ya see the tumbleweed up there on the top shelf? every texas countrygirl needs an authentic texas tumbleweed!!! i used to have the shoe shelves on the floor, but decided i liked them up high & the shelf was looking a little bare & in need of "decorating"!!
the picture is one i cross-stitched about 25+ years ago of our wedding vows. it's a very pretty picture & used to hang on the wall in our bedroom but got stuffed in the bottom/back of the closet a long time ago. marriage vows are just words unless BOTH people think it's important to honor them. i decided that i like the picture & i still think the words/vows are something i like, so i'm just going to enjoy the picture for now.
this is not the 1st time the closet's been cleaned, but it is the 1st time in 23 years that it's been painted & decorated. another of those "why didn't i do this a long time ago" moments!!!!!!!
