Last year was tasty with the Heirloom Recipe Party. This year, I decided to up the anty a little bit and bring in not one, but two, guest speakers. They are sisters that work together under the name Clutter Be Gone to help people get organized.

People actually came.
And the presenters gave us a serious dose of motivation to declutter and simplify our lives.
Some magnets served as a takeaway reminder of something we learned.
A charity truck came the next morning to whisk away the giveaway items that we had all brought from home.
I know the purpose of the party was not to trade junk, but I couldn't help falling in love with this oddly charming garden post. Do you think snow peas would grow up this?
One group of ladies already planned next year's party for me: a proper clothing/housewares exchange.
What are you doing the next third-weekend-in-january?
