I told myself I am really decluttering this year.
Hmmm I say that every year, but no really this year I will.
I got a new sewing machine for Christmas so I told myself I am going to do the craft sewing room in the basement.
So as I am shuffling Christmas containers, I opened one heavy box.
Oh it has my David Cassidy stuff in it!
But here is the treasure I found
the sweetest handmade Valentine from my Grandma
I never knew my Grandmother who lived at 1515.
My Grandma taught me to bake, the names of flowers, my love of china, silver and entertaining. It helped I was her only Grandaughter so I had her undivided attention.
Of course I sit there and cry, but they are happy tears of all the memories.
Many memories, notes from my Mom, a photo album from High School.
Oh how can I sort all this? Seems each container is about 1/2 full.
I did part with cards from friends and extended family members.
I even found a 1/2 box with blue fenton ware and a lusterware blue tea set.
Oh my I have my work cut out!
I should take a before and after picture.
But not until AFTER I am done, you would not believe my yucky basement!
It is fun to find new/old treasures here at home.
Have you found a new/old treasure in your house lately?
