thought i'd share some areas
of our home today...
i have added a few things
from my aunt and uncle's.
she (my aunt) is well (thank you) and
living in a new condo
it is adorable and clean.
she discovered her neighbor
is a cousin of sorts
and the lady brings my aunt
meals which is not a problem
her name is Nello ...
and she isn't too mello...
she'll talk your ear off... :/
you know how i would trade these things all back
to have my uncle!
although *giggle* he would be
just OVERJOYED seeing it all here in
it's new place.
we were instructed more than a thousand times
NOT to part with anything...
(oh please don't look into my living room and hallway...what to do, what to do...)
you guys would have enjoyed him.
he never met a stranger!!!!
he could talk on many subjects,
trains and the circus was his obsession.
Charles played the organ in
the same church for 56 years!!!
blue delft/mirrored shelf
with old tin ship toy on top
my uncle kept every toy, valentine,
receipt, box, gift wrap,
article of clothing...(you are getting my drift)
HOARDER wasn't a word back then,
i don't think.
one pane of glass fell out in transit...
my uncle's old bear peeks thru
i've seen all of your many incredible
spaces that you blog from and create in...
see my laptop?
well, my lap is my "office" and I'm
sitting in my husband's recliner :)
SHHH!!! don't tell him ;)
no, i'm very spoiled and thankful for this room, this house,
this chair....talked to my mother this a.m.
about how we think we must change our sheets
weekly or it is a shame ,etc. etc.
but there are more people in the world who
have never HAD sheets nor a bed to put them on than those who
our ideas are skewed because we are blessed.
ninety years ago my uncle had a high chair.
i'll bet he was a doll sitting there eating...
probably tied in place with a floursack.
little rosy cheeks
thinking about how he'd have six
awesome nieces and nephews
who'd treasure his chair someday.
~~~~off to stash some stuff...send boxes, please~~~
