1-Black fleece vest. Another instance of not trying it on before purchasing (anyone else out there that refuses to subject themselves to fitting room lighting?) and I don't even have the internet to blame as I got this at a live store. Let's just say that, when donned and zipped up, I resemble a Victorian Baroness in a corset. You know, boobs lifted to under the chin. Charming - not.
2-Little bitty salt/pepper shakers. Remnants of my long lamented catering business waaaaay back when. I used to specialize in picnic baskets and packed s/p shakers in amongst the goodies. I loved that job. BUT, there's no room for nostalgia (if it's not involving yarn) this year.
3-More paring down of the DVD library. I love animation but I love Midsomer Murders more, so room must be made.
4-It was tough to decide to part with these nice, warm glove/mitts, but my fingers are degenerating to the point where the only way to keep them warm and functioning is having them ensconced in felted mittens. As soon as those icy digits are divided into individual units, they freeze solid.
5-Old office swag - I don't even want to think about them.
6-Since I really can't help myself, I added three new cookbooks to my collection so, in the interest of my divesting goal, three more had to go.
7-Such a good idea! For someone else. I had longed for a cordless vacuum because cords on vacuums (and anything else) drive me to distraction. This vacuum had great reviews - heavy on the "work so well in homes with pets" that I was sold. Those home with pets must have had gerbils, because this poor thing filled up after 15 minutes of light vacuuming. It went to a perfect home with my sister, who has just moved into a new apartment in the City. With no pets.
