Girls and their goodies

May 6th, 2009



Two of my designer bags are in new homes—-with very happy new owners:

The pink Prada went to Monkey’s Momma:

I love my “new” pink Prada bag! I have never owned a designer bag before, and this one is just perfect because it is my favorite color. My husband, the skeptical one, thought it was a joke until my bag came in the mail. My 6 year old son, who already has great taste, keeps telling me, “Mom, I love your new pink purse!”. Thanks so much, Darryle!









 The brown Donald Pliner bag went to  Pundit Mom for her niece.  She’s busy at college but sent back this picture of herself with her new purse—they are both  adorable.





Mary  models her new bracelet ”It’s beautiful and matches the earrings that my husband gave me really well.  So glad to once again have a turquoise bracelet to go with the earrings and replace the one I lost.”







 And here is Astacia’s daughter with a big smile and her nutcracker—one of the first items I gave away when I started the site after New Year’s.  Proof that with Cluttercast,  Christmas can come any time of year.


So glad the girls love their goodies.   And I love when my clutter finds its way into new homes and new hearts.  Thanks for the pictures!


Waiting for Wedgewood

May 4th, 2009

I’ve had this set of expresso cups for a long time.  Before Williams Sonoma sold home expresso machines.  Before there was Starbucks.  Before I even liked expresso.

It was a wedding gift—-from my first wedding, 30 years ago.    They’re the finest china—Wedgewood, made in England,  a beautiful satin finish inside with a matte exterior.   The set is considered a classic: still made and still sold.  (for $175)   Very sleek.  Very sophisticated.  Very elegant.

 I put the set away, waiting to become sleek and  sophisticated and elegant enough to use it.   I”m still waiting.

Bright and bold and beautiful

May 3rd, 2009

I grew up in Miami Beach where we didn’t  need sweaters.  So maybe that explains why I always loved them.  

 I have a special place in my heart (and in my closet) for sweaters.  At one point years ago I was collecting  Christine Foley sweaters.    They were expensive;  so since she was a San Francisco designer, I would occasionally stop by her warehouse when I was in the city for special sales.  That’s where I picked up this.   Probably I grabbed it without ever trying it on.  Or I would have realized it didn’t fit me and I would never wear it.

This Week’s Catchers: Mother’s Day

May 2nd, 2009


Time for Mothers: Diane

I have no money to buy my mother anything due to my current situation trying to survive, pay my bills, and take care of my kids. …… I would like to give her something she could wear and think about me in a good way instead of worring about me or how she can help me and my boys.




Pearls of Wisdom:  Amy P

These are beautiful.  I would love them.




Thanks to everyone for your comments.  I’ve been traveling this week, just got home and wasn’t able to respond to comments earlier.   Winners please send addresses to
