Today’s Bits and Pieces: Going Through Drawers

Going through drawers.

I went through several dresser drawers to clean them out and came across many treasures. It was amazing and rather fantastic to hold things in my hands I thought were so beautiful and had been hidden from me for so long. I gathered the pins, bracelets, necklaces, rings, and recaptured the items in old wallets from way by gone days, tapes, letters, cards, money, (not as much as I would have liked) scarves, hair pins, a magnifying glass, an antique mirror my grandmother had given to me. Shined up it looks like a million bucks.

I felt like I was going through a drawer of someone who had died and was cleaning it up after her. It was nice to know it was I there and not my kids or someone else. It was a thrill to see my own stuff again. I put the new/old pins on jackets and cleaned up tarnished pendants, put on gold earrings I hadn’t seen in eons. Oh what a fun afternoon. Why not go through some of your drawers. It might surprise you and besides it is very good therapy. Remember you don’t have to wait until you die and let someone else do it. You can be that someone else delighting in finding new/old treasures.

    I don’t know if you will ever be done. You have so many to do. Do you have one for the things you might want to get rid of? Just asking… Love you

      Yes, Marci I have lots of things I am getting rid of, but they are size 16. Do you
      know anyone who fits the bill?? I am sending them on to someone on the east coast who will
      be able to use them. I have a cousin who told me give stuff away because there are people who
      need things. Even though people need them, and they are way too big, I have a hard time letting go
      of my stuff!!! Just going to DA DA DA helps me with giving things away.
