Nothing is more theraputic than cleaning out and organizing your things and making room for the new.. every spring I host a ‘Clean Out Your Closet’ Party for all of my girlfriends…It’s our annual event that everyone looks forward to, it’s the perfect excuse to get together. Filled with snacks, wine, desserts and of course bags of clothes, each person brings their old dresses, blouses, pants, shoes, jackets and jewelry~ we talk, laugh and exhange… everyone leaves with something “new’ and whatever isn’t chosen is donated to a woman’s shelter. So it leaves good feelings all the way around,It’s recycyling at it’s best…
