the purging

i'm moving back out to Toronto for the holidays before i make my even bigger move to NY. oh what a bitter-sweet feeling I have, however more sweet than bitter. my stay here in Vancouver, BC for the past 3 years has been quite the learning curve. i made a cute little artist haven here that i'll miss dearly but y'all know building my NY empire of an eclectic home will give me plenty to blog about. my search for the perfect NY pad has begun! i'm aiming to be there end of february 2010. i'm bending the universe right now to ensure that happens ;)
so my purging consists of my lovely moss green couch that i reupholstered myself, all my furniture even my cool 1940's Singer sewing machine with the built in table, my very own customized chairs, my frickin' mattress that i paid good money for that screwed up my back, my only ikea item: the skinny work table....GONE! everything GONE! thanks to my bestie craigslist my non-essentials are going to good homes.
all i can say is it's about dang time! everyone always asks why i moved out west. there are many reasons, but my most prominent one was to grow up. i was living at home with my mama and bra, eating good food, taking the roof i had over my head for granted, friends and a social life galore, caught up in the fashion scene, indecisive about my love life with the then boy friend (i love you boo boo), and going a million miles per second. sometime you just gotta step back and take it all in from a far. 3 years later imma coming home to tear this roof off! back home to the cities that make me vibrate with creativity! so many projects in the works...tee hee hee. oh i'm gonna destroy it!

any who, here's my little online garage sale. i'll more than likely be posting cool finds of the bottom of my dresser.
no more shopping for me...for now :)
