monday, monday...

  Try as I might, I was unable to get my thrifting mojo on today... It was a trashy day of "wares" (this means pile upon pile of toys, kitchen junk, and electronics ugh!) down at the olde junk factory. Oh well. But, I think, I did stumble upon the most perfect ever EVER flannel! I got a few flannels for my shop and after washing them (I have become so sensitive to smells and um, afraid of bedbugs-that I have to wash everything-even items I'm selling) realized that one (yellow and blue in the cart below) was pretty sweet... We'll see. I'm wearing it tomorrow.
   I was all geared up to start a good detox cleanse. I've been wanting to for weeks. I follow Miss James of Bleubird vintage on twitter and her ongoing cleanse is encouraging. but. but... we always get ice cream on Monday after school and I couldn't talk my little miss out of it. And, do you have any idea how impossible it is to sit in an adorable ice cream shop where they dish out the cadillac of ice creams, air heavy with the perfume of waffle cones being made, and not have a single bite?? I couldn't resist sharing my babes scoop.

I just finished reading Clear Your Clutter with Feng Shui and WOW. It was just the kick in the pants I needed to continue and accelerate my spring redux. I suggest than anyone who i an avid thrifter and prone to um, collecting, get this book. It made me look at items with a clearer perspective. Today i worked on my fabric nd sewing area. i c=got rid of several project that I never want to finish. All you sewers out there understand how big the project  pile can get. It was bad, mine was pretty out of control. It felt good to let those things go. The things I kept are in a mall pile right next to my machine and if they don't get fixed this week, they're gone too.

Some sun today and then  super healthy dinner or Quinoa, steamed broccoli, sauteed mushrooms and shallots and grilled lemongrass tofu. So so good. At least no one complained at dinner, I liked it.

  We spent some time in our old neighborhood (Capitol Hill) on Saturday, just running errands and walking around with friends and it actually made me miss it. We're only 4 miles away now but it seems like we're much further than that.
  I was really good about staying away from the coffee today (yippee) and I've been tired all day so maybe, just maybe I'll be able to drop off to sleep soon. Happy Monday! xo
