Trash to Treasure & 100th post

I stayed at my mom's a few nights this week for some mother/daughter time while her hubby is out of town. One of the nights she threw a little party for her friends (whom I LOVE), however it wasn't your typical gathering. When she invited them over for a potluck she told them all to bring clothes, accessories, etc. that they no longer use, like, fit into, etc. My mom had several areas set up to place the differnt items (clothes, purses, jewlery, etc.) and after dinner they each picked a number. Then they all got to pick from the items as their turn came up.

It was so much fun to watch them. Not only did they each get new (to them) items for free, they got to get eachother's opinions on different outfits, not to mention spend a night with the girls. Everyone had a wonderful time, including me!!

I think I am going to have to do this with my friends. Have you ever done anything like this??

On another note, this is my 100th post!!!!! Holy cow!! Thanks for reading all my jiberish.

I used to do that with some friends of mine! I'm not sure how it would work now though, since some have had babies, etc, and now we are ALL over with sizes. Before we were fairly similiar, so it was SO much fun. But accessories sure would be fun. :)
