Farewell Monday and a Giveaway!

(I know, it's supposed to be Farewell Friday, but whatever...)

This weekend I hunkered down and got a lot of decluttering done.  It feels really, really good -- and my house is looking better for it, too.

One project was my closet.  I tried to be ruthless and get rid of some handbags that I just don't use.  Some (two) were actually UNUSED which kills me.  Impulse buying is a horrible thing!  I'm working on it -- and not having two pointing-finger-guilty-conscience handbags lying around will ease the pain a little.

That's where the giveaway comes in - maybe one of you could use a new bag!  I'd love to pass along one of these babies to one of you -- not only as a thank you for joining me on my clutter journey, but as a fun recycling venture!  Pictures are below -- if you're interested in having one, post here with the name of the bag!  I'll draw a random name on Friday, May 6 (12 noon EST) and will contact the winner for shipping information.  Please be sure your post includes your email somewhere, so I can contact you!  I will ship anywhere in the world.

(p.s. -- I live in a smoke-free home but not a pet-free one -- just an FYI.)

I like nights on the town, candlelight dinners, and Broadway shows.

 Hey, y'all -  I'm a casual gal, who likes bike rides, picnics and hiking. 

I may not be the real thing, but I still know how to have a good time. 

I love long walks in the park, romantic poetry, and a little jazz.

Have a good week!


  1. I would love the Kenneth Cole one!!

  2. Amy I am surprised that you haven't been swamped on this! They are all gorgeous bags, but I really don't need any more - so I won't be entering just commenting. I think that you have done marvellously well at getting through so much of your 'stuff'. You are consistent which is more than I can say about myself!

  3. Ruth, you've been contacted (as you know) and Thanks, Wendy -- you know, I forgot that my readers are trying to get RID of clutter, not get MORE! My giveaway should have been to take a bag and get rid of it for someone :)

  4. Oh I love that coach bag - but is it too late to enter?

  5. Hi Angela -- it isn't too late -- I don't mind sending it to you! Can you email me your mailing info?
