downtown + progress

a couple of weekends ago i threw on some patchouli & my panama hat & headed downtown to do some small & local biz sipporting. one of the local vintage shops was hosting a sidewalk sale with other shops on the block. it was a beautiful day for a fun event. our downtown is going thru a big revitalization & so many exciting new development are underway. i explored cute new shops, beautiful downtown on foot & met some new friends. 

i was super pleased to find these cute wooden crates to help with my kitchen desk area organization. its not done yet, i'm going to add more of those metal ikea boxes & the warm wood softens up all the metal. the crates are hiding unfinished projects im crossing off my to-do list, clutter that i still have to sort thru as i slowly unpack boxes & they are keeping items i need to store out of sight (my fave is the bottom crate that houses our lastest wine shipment from one of our fave wineries).

i've been having good luck with an online resale group with selling & moving unwanted items from my home. seeing the stuff actually leave my house while making a little fun money is a great motivator. 
this purging & organizing is an on going process but having the progress concealed & looking somewhat nice & orderly during sure makes it seem a lot less tedious & overwhelming.
