help with decisions and the answer to the age old question: "where do i take these old clothes?"

i have heaps of photos from my newly tiled/almost finished bathroom. i can't decide if i should post them now, or if i should wait until it is totally finished. which will be next week sometime.

also, i can't decide between 2 colors of counter tops. if you are willing to help, please email me or comment on the blog about which of these 2 colors you think would look better with my red kitchen cabinets. i am not looking for a patriotic kitchen. i just want it to look cool. i might have to hang a french flag or something?

cobalt ice

denim sky

i just got this via my neighborhood listserv. it came 2 weeks too late, because i just took some bags to planet earth or something like that to ship them off to be sold to raise money for projects in mozambique and malawi.

anyway, i thought there might be some people who read this blog with some clothes they might like to give away...

Dear Friends,

I'm reaching out to you because I've been working with my students at the DC Youth Advisory Council this summer training them on issues such as the importance of voting, civic engagement, public policy, financial literacy, etiquette, and more.

One of our upcoming sessions will be on professional development. As we prepare them for entering the workforce, many of them do not have professional attire- which is why I need your help.

We are asking young professionals in the DC area to donate new or gently worn clothes to our Career Closet. These clothes will help them tremendously as they prepare for job interviews, internships, and future careers. The following items are needed:

  • Blazers
  • Blouses
  • Pants/Slacks
  • Skirts
  • Hosiery
  • Dress Shoes

  • Ties
  • Dress Shirts
  • Slacks
  • Collared Knit Shirts
  • Sports Jackets
  • Dress Shoes

The donation deadline is Thursday, July 24th. You can drop items off at our office which is located at 441 4th St. NW, Suite 1140 A North. Please forward this out to your networks and don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.

i can't remember which one you initially chose, but they both seem super beautiful! I guess it's not an irreversible decision, right?

definitely cobalt ice, if your counters were any color other than red. but that patriotic thing (not that I am not proud of this country, in my adult lifetime or otherwise) . . .

so denim sky. which is also superb.

I had a sweet french resistance flag I could loan you that we found in the cave of our house in france. unfortunately, we accidentally left it in our house in france when we moved back. dammit.
