Closet Cleaning got me thinking.

I've been closet cleaning. Why? I am not sure. I think it is the weather. The warm weather gives me so much energy and it makes me want to clean everything. Or maybe I'm nesting. I never nested with Lucy so maybe I'm making up for that. Here are some before and after pictures.

Lucy's closet. YIKES!
Tornado Lucy went through here.
After- I love those wire shelves you pop together. They are really great storage ideas that don't require a lot of assembly.

The Guest Room Closet. This is the closet that got me thinking.
This closet is where I store all my extra wedding gifts. Like our formal glasses, vases. Things I love but we don't use all the time.
So I cleaned the closet. I got rid of a lot of things. Like empty boxes. I always keep boxes. Not anymore I got rid of them.
Here are some things I found that I love that I am going to use.

Champagne Glasses... I need to make 10 friends. Then invite all of them over for champagne.
The coolest glasses.
The coolest pitcher. It would be great for sangria's.
So after I looked through everything in the closet I got to thinking about what was in my china cabinet that I had never used that could be used.

Here it is. Polka Dot Coffee Cups.
I'm going to use them tomorrow.
My goal is to start using everything. Even my formal china. I've already decided that when we have visitors next we are breaking out the good polka dot wine glasses.

Am I the only one who is scared to use their fine china and formal glasses?

Oh Mary, you inspire me to do better with all your cleaning. And yes!! life is short! By all means....use the good stuff. It's only stuff and if you break it, it doesn't matter.

B.M. (before motherhood) I used to get together with a group of friends for "Champagne Thursdays". It was just an excuse to socialize for an hr or so at someone's house and have a glass of champagne! Gimme 8 wks and I'll bring a bottle to use in your pretty glasses! ; )
