Purge Party {4} :: Faves and a Link-up Party

There were more amazing and delightful transformations this week.

I am so proud of you girls!
You inspire me so much!

Marcia from One Heart at Home titled her hilarious purge post:
A Fed Oscar is a not-so-Grouchy Oscar.

Marcia said, "Most of the stuff in this project went to Oscar the Grouch. 
He lives in our garbage can, you know, and he happens to be very happy 
with all these purge parties. I finally tackled our foyer closet."

And tackle it, she did. She wrestled it to the ground and beat that closet into submission!



I hear angels singing, or is that Oscar singing?

Marcia's place is the first place I go when I need some encouragement from a sister.

Phaedra from Phaedra' Adventures tackled her Utility Closet.
I don't think I have ever seen a closet as spiffy as this one before.
Have you?

I think I might like cleaning if my closet looked like hers.

Phaedra has been going through her home, room by room and has MANY fantastic ideas!

An Anglo in Quebec really did her research before redesigning her kitchen.
...gathered inspiration pics from hundreds of her favorite mags.
...checked out every blog possible for ideas that would work in her home.
...considered her family's personal needs in a kitchen, how they'd use the space, what they were missing, what they would love to have.
Then put inspiration into action!



Isn't it gorgeous?
Go see her blog for more ideas!

I am delighted to be a part of your lives and as we all
encourage one another to let go of things
and stop placing so much meaning on the acquiring of STUFF.
And start thinking of our homes as havens, not catch-alls.

Places of ministry, hope and life.


The rules for this party are quite simple:

1.) Your post has to be about releasing extra clutter of the home (i.e. too many options, too many things, too many piles) or shedding extra clutter of the heart (i.e. overwhelm, weariness, disappointment, resentment).
If you find that your link is gone, it's not because I don't love it, it's because your post didn't follow rule #1. I'm sorry!  
2.) Link directly to the post that pertains, not the link to your blog.
[The code for the button is at the top right-hand side of this blog. It will link back here.]
3.) The link party begins at 12:01, Monday, March 28th 
and closes Thursday, March 31th at midnight EST.
4.) I will choose my favorite(s) and feature them next Monday!

So, LINK UP, share and inspire us!

  1. Oh my goodness! This is the first time I have ever been featured! Yay! Thanks for visiting my little blog and your very kind words!

  2. Hopefully linking to this party and doing this post will be the start of the purging process in this room! So much to do....so little time...so much inspiration to get it done!

    bee blessed

  3. Does it count that I'm purging TEACHING off my list in a day? If there was ever a thing that needs to go right now, that would be it.

  4. LOVE that kitchen makeover, Leslie!! Glad to be joining the party today with more purging and picking up in the girls' room. :) Thanks for hosting!

  5. Hi Leslie,
    Thanks so much for including me in your post! I am quite flattered!
    I cannot tell you how good it feels to purge unnecessary items from my life. It allows you to place importance on what really matters. I have a few more projects lined up now that I know the reward that comes from a "master purge". Take Care.

  6. Oh my goodness, Leslie, that utility closet is amazing, and that kitchen...I LOVE IT!! I must have missed them last week but will visit today. It was cute seeing Oscar here too. ;)

    Hope to share something today.
    Love ya!

  7. Wow, great transformations, Leslie. See what a good motivator you are? That's a gift! Susan

  8. Thanks for the link party. I just found your blog and I'm going to take a look around. But I wanted to invite you to my Organizing Mission Monday link party and also to list your link party on my link party list. (Link tab on top)

  9. Oh I can't wait for the next party! I didn't find you in time for this week, but that is OK, because one of the best things about link parties is the motivation to have something to share for the next time!

  10. LOVE this idea!!! Got the juices flowing. I think I might start small...I've got a drawer in the kitchen that is calling my name.

  11. That is a great idea, thanks for sharing:)

  12. I looove the highlights you picked. That Oscar stuff is brilliant. I think Oscar actually lives in my closet. That kitchen before and after is amazing!!! I wanted to link up, but with the kids home last week, I got zero cleaning done so I sure didn't have time to declutter. Maybe next week.


Thank you for coming by and for sharing your heart and thoughts with me!
