the great cleanout of '09




It started simply with one closet. Then the tree fell on the house, and we had to vacate two closets. Given that we have no attic or basement, this was a huge blow- and meant that stuff was EVERYWHERE in the house. Which has sparked the great cleanout of '09. I've actually gotten rid of enough things that I will only be able to fill one of the closets whenever we can move the stuff back in. And though I don't have an 'entertaining closet'...a dream of mine...I do now have some 'entertaining shelves', shown above. My son has even gotten into the organizing mood and helped with my filing.

Do you remember that great entertaining closet that Stephen Earle had at his East Hampton house? He had taken the door off a closet and lined it with shelves for all his dishes, platters, serving pieces, pitchers.. it was so amazing.
