This is not as sparkly and silvery as it is in the flesh, but you get the idea!

We have practically finished packing with the exception of some clothes, basic kitchen essentials and a couple of lamps.  We are up to week two of a six week deadline, so we're doing very well!

There is a heap of stuff to go to the council tip, more still to be handed onto the Salvation Army.  I feel blessed that we have so much and burdened by it all at the same time.  It feels good to pass it all on.  We are moving on to a simpler lifestyle at our new place, that's for sure!


  1. very exciting Patti. Nice there is a WE to pack not just a me. yes, amazing what we accumulate. it is nice to simplify. I can't wait to hear about your new place. all this took place pretty quickly. cheers, suki

  2. You are a shiny star, Miss Patti ! Here's to a new, simpler home for your great heart.
    Cheers !

  3. Downsizing feels wonderful and we're still working at it, even a year after moving. We just had so much STUFF! Lightening the load and then not taking on more new stuff...that's the current objective. It sounds like you're enjoying the process. Happy Times!

  4. I am so excited for you Patti. Downsizing is liberating, and a simple lifestyle is a great impetus for creativity. I will be excited to see what happens! xoO

  5. Every three months I pretend I'm going to move. It forces me to ask "would I want to take THAT with me to my new place?" Got into that habit when I had 900 sf apt. and no garage. With a real home and garage, now, I feel smug when I can look into a half-empty cabinet - haha! Have a happy move, Patti -love your art, so inspiring and joyous.

  6. What a nice colorful blog you have!!!
    Loved looking around made me feel happy:)

    Have a nice day!
