Favourite Things Friday - Summer Closet


Thankyou Jessica, I'm flattered to be featured again this week on her blog, A Few of My Favourite Things. This blog began as my hidden away closet where I stored some fashion favourites which I'm sharing again this week. Whenever I meet someone for the first time, I can pretty much place a bet that they'll say....'how do you do it all?' Well, the big secret is...I don't. I gave up several years ago and truly became the manager of my home, and the children have had to come alongside me to keep things in order. I especially rely on their strengths and talents and deligate whatever I can which they enjoy. Thus if you came for a visit to our house. you'd enjoy tea and cakes, a sweet smile, maybe a voilin or flute concerto, and probably a game of football...(you'd be encouraged to bring your own team ;))

Back on topic, here's a trick I found to satisfy my shopping urge and reorganize my closet at the same time. I love to go 'window shopping' online each season to catch up on the latest styles and colours, order a catalogue or two and put my own wardrobe together on what I already have. The best part is, when I have to go out I take a quick look at my virtual closet over coffee and decide what to wear. No more rummaging thru the closet, and finding nothing to wear after trying on half the clothes. Don't you hate that?
