Need to add to mine, (you all made me think of my,
um, junk xxxx, stuff)

LPBeir - unfinished projects! and all the stuff to complete them - me too!

BarbaraL - Home Depot has the cutest keyring of a very
mini level - just thought you sounded like
you needed another one. Ha!

JillBurgh - depression glass, send it all! Or post
photos, please!

Suziquzie - & all others, - fabric, fabric, fabric. I think
I have every "Fat Quarter" color you could
want and 1/2 yard too. Some day everyday
will last 40 hours so I can start every quilt,
and finish every last one of them.

I used to refinish furniture, alot, then keep or give to family or friends. I don't do too much anymore due to
home size constraints, but I still have everything needed
relating to that, and still love doing pieces that are interesting.
I save ribbon. The fabric or satin, or silk kind ladies and girls used to wear in their hair. So most of the pieces are
18"-24" long.
I used to collect unused, 1 only, Christmas cards. I didn't have them in an airtight container. Just a decorative cardboard box, in my shed. The side angle,
driving, but shortlived, rains of Hurricane Wilma got into the seams of my roof/walls and molded all of them.
Now the trashman has them.

I had a yard sale last November and got rid of alot of
things that alway seemed so important to me, but realized I haven't seen or would never use. One guy
bought over $300 worth of little stuff! Now, I find
I go to look for something and it's not there and I miss it. Not that I really needed any of it. But it's sort of a
part of you, you've lost.
But it's made way for new/more stuff!
Let that be a lesson though. Really think about what you want to give up.

Well, how do I put this politely... I don't HAVE it yet because, um, she's still alive!! It's willed to me, though.

We are setting up at the flea market next weekend. I am going to take a picture of our table for you to ooh and ahh over. Too bad you're in Florida I have a GORGEOUS piece of furn we bought at flea mkt for $30 that needs refinished, and we're also looking for a rustic piece in the kitchen. We could commission you to help out if you were here in PA!

Ha! I also like Penzey's spices!
(Sorry fuzzy- they're phone pics!)

Actually, I will be going again tomorrow for:

crystallized ginger
fox point seasoning
ground white pepper
zatar seasoning
Pakistani crushed red pepper (extra hot!)

Now I need another shelf... Quicksilver?

I was given some very old FiestaWare before my mother-in-law passed away..........the old stuff is unbelievably pricey these days if you can even find it........her mother had two sets of it just sitting under the bed collecting dust and "mom" divided it up amongst her "girls"........back then it cost nothing to buy.............why it's worth so much today I don't know.......wished that I had a full set :)

Jill, your spice racks and shelves look like mine!:) What a nice collection!!!

Haha don't apologize. I didn't mention that part but I thought we could all read each other's minds here. She is splitting the collection and every time we visit she shows us each our share.
