Saving Stuff

August 27, 2010

When stuff is sentimental, my purging abilities come to a huge halt.  My  mom loved stuff too.  She even wrote notes about her favorite possessions on index cards, and kept them in a recipe box.  I’m glad she did, or I would have forgotten this great story.

The card says:

Doll dishes (blue with butterflies)

early 1920s

Blue – my first set of dishes

Cat jumped out of my arms, knocking cupboard down – broke all but these

2 plates

1 cup & saucer

1 sugar bowl and cream

1979 appraisal $10.00

2010 appraisal – There will be room for these at our new house.
