Organize, declutter and toss......

I have way too much "stuff" but in my defense, when you've lived in a house for 27 years, raised a daughter, had a couple of businesses, had 3 g'kids & lived a life, it's hard not to have accumulated lots of "stuff".  Why is it so hard to throw "stuff" away and who wants it but you?  Phoebe is with me this weekend and right now she's going through her mom's collection of Kewpie dolls.  Stella has a collection of horses and now Phoebe will have a collection too.

My friend's mom makes quilts for newborns and is always in need of fabric.  Boy, did she ever come to the right person.  I have more fabric then I'd ever use in a lifetime so I'm packing it up and sending it off to be used for good.  Then my nephew is coming this afternoon to disconnect my desktop computer and get it out of my workroom.  Maybe, then I will want to go in there to actually work on projects.

In the midst of the craziness, my sisters and I took off and did a little antiquing.  We hadn't had a day out for far too long.  It was so much fun and I came home ready to work again.

Hope everyone has a great weekend.  Phoebe and I are stickin' pretty close to home today -- it's very cold outside.  We're going to build a fire and bake some cookies and just hang out.  Oh, and we got a Barbie movie to watch.  What a day!

Baking and eating cookies by the fire.....sounds divine! Funny how it makes it easier to get rid of things when you know they are going to a good home and will be put to good use.
