I guess the start of a new year encourages this sort of thing..
I was having a chat with a dear friend the other day
about the meaning of a "spring clean"
It's not how it is these days with a quick whip around of the vacuum with the iphone in one hand sharing pics on instagram..
A real sping clean involved moving all the furniture out onto the front lawn..
washing the curtains
scrubbing the walls
whumping the carpets on the clothes line
this is what my showroom needed
a good "Spring Clean"
but in summer...
I stacked it all up under the Japanese maple..
scrubbed the window and walls..
removed all the dead fly bodies..
(boy oh boy there were some FAT spiders in there after all that gluttony)
and slowly put it all back in..
I came to a few realisations during this process..
1. my injured arm is still not back to full function since the car accident around this time in 2012
2. I have too much stuff..
Point number 1. I'm still working on
Point number 2. I'm selling off some stuff
You can find it over here in my ebay Australia store
Like this gorgeous old desk..
this super cool Church noticeboard..
or this darling old pink as pink hamper / stool..
at about this point I should be inserting a photo of myself looking charming, perky and full of beans with excitement at the rearrangement of my showroom..
The reality is I haven't finished yet and have no makeup on let alone a groovy retro outfit and a winky smile
If you buy these treasures and come and pick them up I'll do my best to live up to that image but until then pretend this is me..
cheeky aren't I?
