Sorting cleaning preparing



At least five bags in this size me and the kids carried to local second hand stores. Time for floor renovation, again. The magazine piles has shrinked with 50 per cent (gosh I´m bad at english). Feels fine.

Snygga randiga pantalonger!

Så kul med tidningar å ha o bläddra i, men -det är ju en underbart skön känsla o göra sej av med lite också. Bra m bärhjälp! (först trodde jag att golvet höll på o ge vika av alla tidningar hehe :)

Skönt att skriva något lite på svenska (fast det är ju annars som en frivillig liten engelskakurs det här...)
Visst är det ansträngande att renovera - och kul! Tänk vad härligt med nytt golv. Vi har precis gjort detsamma och det är flera veckor sedan och ännu har vi knappt ställt in några möbler, det är så skönt med ett glest möblerat rum.
Jag gillar dina mönster jättemycket, bara så du vet!

I have an ottoman that houses all my magazines. It has been driving me insane...I need to get rid of so many. I just have a hard time parting with things I once loved.

Eunice said...

ah, the misfortunes of being an artist/crafter, we tend to accumulate things such as piles of magazines. they're great resource for collages, though that's why i like to keep them. [:

Jill said...

I am needing to weed out our closets too...something about the spring makes me want to give everything away and get back to basics, but somehow I manage to accumulate again by the next year :)

kimberlee said...

oh if only I lived near those second hand shops! a world wide magazine receycle swap is in order but I fear all that shipping would cancel out the benefits of recycling twice over!

fliss said...

Spring cleaning is always a great feeling :)

Oh yes, it´s double feelings collecting things. Pure love but also burdens. Demand a lot of time, gives and takes energy. Sometimes I long for a more Feng shui home, but in the other hand my collected things give so much inspiration and happiness, and I don´t think I would be comfortable in a too "clean" home.

kimberlee, yes a magazine receycle swap, world wide (without enviroment destroying shipping) would be awesome.

marie-louise, tack vad kul :)!

Cakies said...

i am with kimberlee... a world wide swap is needed! i just did that yesterday, except I am sending the clothes to some needy kids in the philippines. We really have too much!

fine little day said...

cakies, too much yes. Donations to needy ones on a regulas basis is good.

Hej! Kom just på att jag visade kannan igår (den jag nämnde tidigare apropå din glaskanna...)

Tycker om färg - och mönsterkombinationerna på tights och väska!!

and thank you, thank you for your sweet words from last week! that explains the many visitors!

AG said...

Elisabeth, oh that growing magazine piles I know them so very well, I ended up making friends with them because I never manage to cut out the pictures I want to keep, so I keep them all and sometimes I tell them that they might get recycled.
I still adore your ability to catch that little common but treasured moments in everyday life for your blog. thanks again

Maria said...

jag har svårt för att göra av med böcker och tidningar! Men jag borde också göra det, ska flytta snart och då ska det sorteras och föras till loppis:)

farmgirldrygoods said...

i can relate to getting rid of so many magazines! i did that last year and recycled about 200!
i love your blog by the way!

Anonymous said...

Oh! Where is that local second hand store? I want to head over and buy some. :D Lovely!

Jenelle said...

i'm clearing out our home right now too. i've been dealing with the children's items first - and me last. as i have so many treasures, that i have been holding on to, but i must part with them - as we are moving to a floating home. that is very small.

i look at my magazine pile & don't know how i could part with them, but they would sink our new home forsure!

fanja said...

i know the feeling, it's quite hard to have to get rid of the old magazines. back home i went through my pile of old fashion mags, i'll share a few pics soon x

Heather Moore said...

I love your English! Totally and utterly charming.

Sophie C. said...

I don't know if the pink checked bag accidentely matched the pink striped tights...but the result is great!
Will immediately write a post on this - hope you don't mind me using your pict?

fine little day said...

Oh, thank you Heather. I often feel so limited in english, but It´s this or nothing.
