elegant trash

Contradiction in terms...not for me. Its the world I live in.
Its the delicate balance of this and that making the other. I love the other.

And it doesn't just involve my jewelry, its more of a life style choice. A way of life, so to speak. Maintaining a quality of style on a budget of nothing.

Of knowing where all the resale shops are
and charity shops
and clearance racks
and day-old shops
and scratch and dent places
and flea markets
and when each town has their city wide garage sale days

Its recovering your furniture because its solid and old and built much better than the new stuff.

Its deciding which trend to follow and which can be ignored.
Its living with need vs want and being happy.
Learning to adjust at a moments notice and understanding that nothing is more valuable than peace of mind.

And most importantly, making it all work.

  1. You don't need to know where the flea markets are, you have flea farms in your house.
