In 1995, when my first marriage ended & I moved into a vintage 350 sq foot apartment (with a Murphy bed, gas stove & clawfoot tub-yum!) I decided I only wanted things around me that I loved. The only closet was about 2 feet wide and 6 feet tall. It was the first time in my life that I gave myself permission to give away gifts that I had received that didn't suit or no longer served me. What a revelation!
I was very happy there! I had a dinner party every week to improve my cooking skills & at one point had 10 people over! (in the garden, of course!)
