closet case :: use it or lose it



When I took the time to really think about how every single item I owned made me feel, I realized that an overflowing wardrobe brought me nothing but stress. Sure, I liked shopping and instant gratification of a purchase, but after that initial buzz wore off, what was I left with? Too many clothes and not enough hangers, that’s what. ~ Lucie Thompson

While looking for images to best visualize my ultimate closet, I came across this perfectly written article by Lucie Thompson :: I Purged 100 Items From My Closet & Changed My Life. Ladies {and guys}, it’s time to minimize.

“Oh.My.God! I think I just found my dreamhome! It’s no secret that I love vintage, eclectic and Scandinavian interiors. But the added industrial touch in this hometour made my heart beat faster.” ~ Jessica via Costello Decorating

We’re with ya Jessica … this interior is right up our alley as well. Starting off with a clean canvas {white} and then adding touches of modern with traditional elements … add in lots of life’s momentos and wooolah, this is whatchya get! Løve it.

buy art :: be original

Hirundo Rustico SM

Hirundo Rustica Colorado Rockies, papier collé and gold leaf, Nadine Sage :: $75, available at the FAC Museum Shop

The vision of the Colorado Originals Program at the Colorado Spring’s Fine Arts Center Museum Shop is to make collectible, contemporary, Colorado-made artwork accessible to patrons {seriously, the prices are extremely reasonable}. It’s time to start buying original art … it’s affordable and it’s oh so better than a poster that everyone and their brother has.

unconditional love :: sacred heart

Okay, so I’m not super religious. But, for whatever reason, I’m simply fascinated by the beauty of the sacred heart. Whether it’s a tattoo or in fashion or in religious artwork … I’m drawn to it like a June bug to light. Plus, I admire what it stands for — fortitude, rebirth and unconditional love.

YOU deserve it. oxo
