Arg. Lots of little things done from the cedar closet today. Many, many pictures in the bottoms of containers, in plastic bags, in fire boxes; most of them were from my parents' house.
It's very slow going. But it's going.
Here's the closet now, with some bins put back, after having gone through and gotten rid of stuff that wasn't necessary, like power bills from 1967.
I got all the suitcases and tote bags put back, but they're on the floor. I'm not crazy about that, but I need to figure out what else to do. Also on the upper shelf are bags and boxes with keepsake T-shirts for both kids and me that I "plan" one day to use to make each of us a T-shirt quilt. "Plan" being the operative word here.
Anyone need any Beanie Babies? I went through a collector's phase a number of years ago and have over a hundred, mostly bears. I need to find a place to pass these along to...I don't want to just donate them.
Tomorrow I'll post progress to the areas that have been housing the boxes pulled out...they're still a mess, but the mess is getting smaller!
And once it's daylight, I'll post a pic of a treasure I found tonight...a dollar coin from 1884! My granddaddy was a coin collector, and this was one of several I found tonight. It was the oldest one, and I couldn't get a good picture because of the glare of the flash and turning the flash off made the picture fuzzy. I'll wait for natural light.
Progress! Gotta love it.
