I noticed this week that the sun's been sitting higher in the sky; it's rays have felt stronger, warmer. Spring will be here soon and we'll finally be free of winter jackets and runny noses. And hopefully, the random patches of snow that just won't melt. I can't be the only one who feels the urge to purge this time of year. A bit of spring cleaning. In our home, we wear clothes until they no longer fit properly or they fall apart. Rich doesn't always follow along with my rules of "frugality"though. It's become quite apparent over the past month that the girls' closets need to be cleaned out. There are plenty of size 4 dresses, shirts and pajamas that need to be packed up and passed along to cousins.
It may also be time to retire Em's brown skirt. It's a size 2T and the fabric is starting to fade from years or wear and wash.
My side of the closet is in need of a good purge. Many items are long past their expiration date or were post-triplet purchases that are now too big. I've delayed cleaning it out because I'm afraid it will be near empty once I do. I know - ridiculous.
I made this prairie skirt as part of a birthday gift for one of Anna's classmates. She's also in the girls' dance class.
I think these skirts are so adorable, especially when worn with a tank top, and comfortable in the summer.
