We're into the second week of spring here. I'm noticing a few hardy, university kids are wearing shorts. Mind you they are wearing Bermuda shorts with a parka on top. This combination of shorts and parkas is a classic springtime combo where I live. Nothing feels better than fresh air on bare legs after a long winter of thermals and jeans.
Spring is also the time of year that people clean out their closets. Sometimes a stylish lady of a certain generation will purge her closet of gems from the past. At that point I will scoop up these gems, chortling merrily in the process. Seriously, I chortle in thrift stores. Don't judge me.

You may recall my feeble attempt at, "Don't buy till July". The purpose of this resolution was to decrease the alarming rate at which I'm acquiring clothing, purses, jewelery, scarves and shoes. I have 2 closets, and I share an additional closet with my stylist. Plus I have a coat and shoe closet. Plus I have about 5 Rubbermade totes (they are the small totes mind you!) in the shed. These totes hold my seasonal stuff.
Oh, I also have a sewing room with large piles of clothing to be madeover into fabulous creations.
So I'm struggling with "how much is too much". I'd like to know YOUR opinion.
And, without further ado, here is the rest of my haul. Pardon my bad pics, I'm working on it.
