I call it antiquing....but in reality when I see some of the homes in the country magazines....I suppose I am a "junker"...of old and worn but functional and usuable items! There isn't much in our home that is "just for display" ! You sit on our old chairs and if a "rong" comes loose we glue it back - quilts are used for keeping warm - old boxes hold papers, potpourri, tools, books, and more. An old spice box is where we keep the stamps, extra screws, tokens, receipts, the weekly cash....hmmmm...you wouldn't believe the good "finds" in those little drawers. We have lived in our home for 39 years....that is a long time...I know every nook and cranny and have changed the curtains too many times to remember. I'm telling you all this because today I am going to "purge".....yegads what an ugly word.....LOL!! The attic is filled to the brim with 39 years of crafting, collecting and and just plain...."I might want that one day" items that need to GO ! So I am a bit sad - letting go is not any easy thing - Tony is THRILLED !! AND, nobody wants what is in the attic.. and in reality, neither do I any longer...sigh !! So today is the day I start......thank goodness the sun is shining!!
