Happy Decoration Day! I hope your weekend was/is rewarding in many ways. Hats off and a solemn bow to all veterans, past and present. I'll not ever forget you've kept my words as well as my world free. Thank you.
I've been cleaning and cleaning... and looking around I see the need for more. So, yeah...
And, the lawn needs mowed, so there's that.
I don't know if you've ever watched Hoarders, but what I want to know is, where exactly is that fine line between hoarding and collecting?
|...and in this corner, you'll see my collection of my mom's old computers.|
I collect dust bunnies by default. I believe they find my little home comforting and warm, so they come and stay...they feel safe here as the broom rarely comes out of her closet. (I'm still searching for her instruction manual). Then they invite bigger friends. They have raucous parties under my couch which migrate to under my bed, keeping me up at night. Nasty little things!
I used to collect beanie-babies bears. I most recently bestowed upon my nearest county's DHS temporary care-giver well over a hundred of those little snugglies ~ to hand out to children who've been snatched from their homes by no fault of their own. The end result (on my end) ~ I'm no longer a beanie-bear-baby collector. (It's quite refreshing to let go of some things in one's past.)
|Yeah... I had three of these... because you just never know when one won't be enough.|
|...because I can.|
I suppose I could do it myself, but since I've not a woodworking tool about me and I know as much about wood-smithing as I do rocket surgery...
|The results could be deadly.|
In Joy & Enjoy!
