Not easy at all. Especially when you get stranded, but I digress.
Getting back to my childhood home is one of those really simple pleasures that I just can't replicate in my city apartment. On of the best parts of being back at home is playing around in my parents closet a la 2nd grade.
As people get older, their closets typically become more refined. In the case of my parents, they have some really beautiful things- but I'm interested in the older pieces that are almost costume-like today.
When I find something that I really love-- for its beauty, comedy, details, or nostalgia-- inventing ways to use it is like a sport. What are some of your best closet finds?
