Parts of my home are clean

and presentable...
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
(how strange!)
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 
at all! 
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.
that's all. 

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. 
silly boy. 

~~~~off to stash some stuff...send boxes, please~~~
