Things I Love......a series to entertain you

For me, so much of 2011 has been about THINGS.
as in

How did I get so many things?

Why is it so hard for me to throw out things?


What things do I want to keep enough to move to a new spot?

Right now I'm at the tail end of getting rid of all the extraneous things.

I still have plenty, don't worry. I thought I'd show you some of the things I love. Series style, on successive days.....

Here is #1. Looks like a battered tin box from our Germany days, right? It is. The contents are the things I love. I have kept photographs, many that came with Christmas cards over the years in this box. 18 years plus. Now it is full and the memories are one of my favorite parts of Christmas. Many very hilarious photos, and sweet ones like this from 20 years ago....

  1. Cool box, and you've given it a practical use. How about that quilt behind it? Looks good.

  2. That quilt behind it was featured on this blog:

    AND I've been in touch with someone who knows the makers! I'll write that story soon.....

  3. Batavia was the name of a very old Ship from Holland.
