This weekend I did two things. I got rid of somethings. And I brought in somethings. It's quite literally a case of one person's trash being another person's treasure. I pawned some of my clothing off on my sister on Saturday. Sunday was spent going through my grandparents' basement for items that either fit into our new decor (which is coming together much slower than I'd anticipated) or had high emotional value.
What never fails to amaze me is that despite the fact that I've been visiting my grandparents at this house since I was born, and the fact that I even lived there for my first year of university, I still find items that I've never seen before, like this copy of "You're You, Charlie Brown". Since Scott a) likes Charlie Brown, b) dressed up as Charlie Brown one year for Halloween and c) is called Charlie Brown by a few people, I knew it had to come home. Similar logic followed with the "All About Sandwiches" brochure from Agriculture Canada.
Even though I know that we don't have a lot of room to store things, right now, I just couldn't turn down some of these items.
Do you have any items from family that you have to have - but that doesn't go with your decor?
