So the journey begins

This isn't going to be easy. I have been planning on starting a blog for about a year now, but have kept putting it off because I have poor computing skills. Oh well, here I am. The purpose of this blog is to write about all sorts of things; fashion, old stuff, movies, books, random thoughts about the world. Eventually there will be photos too.

One of the more practical aspects of this blog will be a process called The Clean-Up. For the past couple of years I have been buying things. Things as in "stuff". Clothes, shoes, books, bags, porcelain, furniture, pictures, fashion magazines, stamps, coins, old issues of the National Geographic, you name it. I have a lot of stuff. I guess you could say that I went through a couple of years of shopaholism. I have recently regained my sanity and I am about to start getting rid of stuff that I don't need or really even want. However, this isn't going to be one of those Spartan fieldtrips. I like beautiful things. It is more about having perspective and remembering that quality overrides quantity. I am going to be sharing this experience with whoever is out there.
