Closets, crochet and lace

I love my things.  Vintage finds are in abundance in my carefully organized closets.  Most cherished are lace and crochet, and I incorporate these into most everything I wear, regardless of occasion.  Ebay has provided a boundless and creative outlet for me, along with the thrift stores I regularly scour.
I have captured photos of my closet.  It is important for me to be able to see everything I wear, regardless of season, as I tend to do lots of layering, etc.  I also like to have my favorite pieces of jewelry visible, so I added these vintage hook racks for easy access.  This is all still a work in progress, but it is a lot of fun to shop in my own closet when I have things at my fingertips.

Random things I've learned...

I've learned that it is indeed true....I am not a very good driver.

I have learned that I am a much more authentic and empathic and reasonable human being now that I am no longer:
*affiliated with an organized religion
*incessantly worried about what others think
*in a dating relationship (for now)
*surrounded by "stuff"
*aligned with most things Republican

I have learned that there are genuinely mean people out there, but there are also genuinely good people as well, and some are not always as they first appear...on both pendulums.

I've learned (over and over) that words hurt.

I've learned that guns do kill people.

I've learned that I usually prefer the company of books and animals over people.

I've learned that sugar is an intensely addictive substance.

I have come to know that I will never be tempted, even in the slightest, to eat animal flesh ever again.

I have learned that yoga and running are as necessary for my existence as water.

I have learned that without a doubt, there are things worse than death.

I have learned that there is nothing NOTHING greater than the love for a child.
