The girls and I cleaned out the attic of our old house.
Yesterday, I finally went through everything, cleaned and repacked it all.
Some favorite things.
Two Nancy Drew books.
One is going off to a friend that collects them.
And my Bobbsey twin books.
And these cute little bunnies that I made in ceramics years ago.
Several other ceramic items were found also.
Shawnee, the decorating and fashion police of our family,
was a little dismayed that I would put these out.
Shelby loved these when she was little and I used them to potty train her.
She was allowed to play with them if she used the potty.
I think she needs them for Kendall.
A couple of table runners that my Mom made for me.
And my favorite book from when I was little.
Well worn, but glad that I have kept it.
A wool blanket that I pieced years ago.
I was using wool, when wool wasn't cool!
My grandmother's tea set.
Not all of the pieces have survived.
It is so delicate.
Can you see the lady in the bottom of the cup?
It is repacked, a little safer.
Wish I knew what to do with it.
With five grandchildren under the age of five,
let's just say it is not going to be displayed any place safe in my house.
Some Christmas decorations that I painted,
How do you like that wire across my floor.
We'll leave that explanation for another day, another post.
It was fun digging through stuff, long forgotten.
There were tons of Golden books, tons of Dr. Suess books, papers from years of school work of the girls.
There was china and dishes
and lots of junk.
What a good feeling to have that done!
