unraveled office

Today is Clean Office Day.
The office/nursery is a wreck!! Last week I swept through the entire house in a mad bout of spring cleaning fever only to realize that my office has become a dumping ground for the "what the heck do I do with this?" items.
 Boxes of fabric and craft supplies. Props and decor for my Renaissance Faire. "To-Be-Listed Etsy" items in little piles all over the floor. Shipping supplies spilling out of diaper boxes. Sheesh!!
 Last week I sorted  through this tin of my late grandmother's jewelry and left some pieces strewn about on the floor to be trampled upon by my clumsy feet. How careless!!
Even this Christmas ornament my grandmother made from a photo of a 6 year old me (doing what I do best) has been laying on the floor for days.
I need professional help!
I decided to use my junky office as inspiration for today's outfit. A mish-mash of completely random pieces. I just grabbed stuff and started putting it on. Well, that's really how I get dressed everyday anyway, but today I was actually inspired by something.
 Cotton tank: hand-me-down
Skirt: retail
Shoes: Salvation Army
Hair piece: Etsy (originally bought for my wedding but we changed the theme)
V Necklace: Ebay 99 cents
Gold necklace: Grandmother's, last worn for a wedding in NY last month
 Tibetan Silver Bangles: Ebay 99 cents
Now I'm off to reclaim my work space!! Wish me luck!!


  1. You as a 6 years old, ahhhh, so cute!
    I love your outfit, the skirt print is nicely ethnic, the Tibetan bangles and your grandma's necklace are amazing.
    Good luck cleaning up, I'm up to go over my books and magazines and donate lots of them.

    1. Oh send them my way! NO! No! No more stuff!! Must clean!!

    1. Thanks! It's actually an creme eyeshadow pencil but it works right??

  3. Your room is vibrating with kinetic energy with art projects at every turn - at least that's the good way of seeing it and letting yourself off the hook for picking stuff up. I do that all the time.
    Love your thrown-together look.

  4. Shoooooooes! Love them. Good luck with the tidy up campaign!

  5. Clean rooms are just that clean, yours is way more interesting!

  6. good luck! Looks like a giant treasure chest to me.

  7. Uh oh! I need to clean my work room stat- it's a disaster. Inspire me with the results!

  8. love a bit of reorganising my office, although when it's a complete tip it's so disheartening. Love the tin of treasures and all your pretty jewels, ooh and you rock turquoise lipstick!
