Cleaning Out My Closet

A couple weeks back Haley & I cleaned out my closet.
She's the organized one...I'm the one who has no problem getting rid of things.
I would show you a before photo of the closet but I'm even embarrassed.
It takes a lot to embarrass me.
Now you know it must have been bad.
I didn't have a floor.
Shoes & purses everywhere.
My closet was not a pretty sight~

This is what came out of my closet.
Just one closet.
Ok....I lied...and a couple of my drawers.
But seriosly, I just moved a little over 2 years ago.
When I was packing I went through everything.
How did this happen?

This is the new and improved Maisy closet.
Look...can you believe it???......I actually have shelf space available for me to fill.
Yes, that is what I will do.....I will work very hard at filling that shelf space.
I don't want to have a sad shelf.
Always wondering why it's not good enough to hold clothes.
I just can't do that.
Don't worry shelf....I will take care of you~

We went and bought all new hangers.
While I was at Target I picked up a new shirt.
Yep....that's the way Maisy rolls.
For every piece out a new piece comes in.

I am so glad that my master bedroom has 2 master closets.
Bill never comes in my closet....he has no idea what I have in there.


Today it's raining here in Chicago....
Sounds like the perfect day to go shopping!

Can we talk about the chandelier you appear to have in your closet? Um, I'd like to grab a book and retreat in there. Do you mind?!

Sarah said...

Yay, doesn't that feel good? I do that about 3-4 times a year and I always shocked how many things I find to give away or donate! How DOES that happen? I like those tan boots in the picture, where are they from do tell!? :)
Glad you got it all cleaned out!

I would love to have your closet. Our house was built in the 1800's and we haven't done much to it in the way of remodeling. We have one small closet in our bedroom and NO MORE closets! Can you believe that?? Crazy!! We did put a small broom closet in the bathroom.

Happy belated birthday too! Love that white shirt you are wearing in the photo.
