I always get the urge to have a clear out at this time of year. I expect that this might be seen as the spring clean type of event that my Mother religiously undertakes although I have a feeling our motives are different. For her it is a chance to clean and reorganise and officially of course that is my reason, however, I think for me it has more to do with getting rid of the old to make way for the new. i.e. clothes, shoes and jewellery. I like to think that I am helping the ecomony in these difficult times by generously donating my old clothes to charity shops (all of which are newish and clean and ironed, I hasten to add) and helping the retail industry by buying new things.
I have to say I love tidying and reorganising my cupboards and drawers which I realise is little on the sad side but I do like to know what I have and what I am going to wear. If I haven't worn something for a few years - do I really need it? One area that I leave to last is my jewellery. My jewellery seems to fall into different areas. The first being items of jewellery received as presents as a child but probably will never wear. I keep this in a seperate small jewellery box as I am very sentimentally attached to it and will never part with any of it.
I then have jewellery that is suitable for a night out and every day jewellery. I store this all together but not always successfully as it can get tangled. This is why ahead of drawer tidiers, storage boxes and yet more see through shoe boxes, I will be investing in a jewellery box this season to hold all my jewellery. I am hoping that someone will buy this for me on as a birthday gift. A jewellery box is a timeless addition to a dressing table that the lucky recipient will be glad she has every day when she is looking for that one necklace that matches her outfit. Dulwich Designs have a great selection new design jewellery boxes that make perfect gifts for her. This includes their sophisticated black leather oslo jewellery box with the funky hot pink lining.
