...with some long lost friends?
Yes, in a way...
|Purple shoes that I bought & wore in the late 1980s then put in a box & neglected for 20 years...|
Yesterday, the sun shone but the temperature seemed to drop. I succumbed & put the central heating on. It was, I decided, time to get out the winter clothes.
Before I met Mr TH I had 2 wardrobes & a chest of drawers full of all my clothes. I knew where everything was, there was no confusion.
Now I have to share a wardrobe. This means a seasonal shifting of clothes. Inevitably, there are casualties, clothes that get forgotten or moved at the wrong time. Then again, it is like meeting up with old friends & reacquainting yourself all over again.
Sometimes there are very simple questions that need to be asked...
|Why have I got 6 almost identical red jumpers?|
Now there are 3 piles of clothing: one to go to the charity shop, one to be remodelled when the sewing machine returns from ‘surgery’ & another of rediscovered clothes that I have neatly folded or hung up in the wardrobe.
Buy Nothing New Month has certainly helped me to look at my clothes in a different, more creative way. I seem much more willing to adapt & remodel clothes. Maybe I'm starting to think about what is actually needed rather than just what is wanted.
