Some old things...

We have decided to try to work on cleaning out the stuff we have in a storage garage in Delano. If you don't remember, we had to rent a garage space in Delano to store mostly the stuff that was in the old house. By calling it stuff makes it seem like it's desirable items, some of which, it is, most of which, I might say, is not. When we were cleaning out the house, we threw away alot of junk, but sometimes you would come to a dresser drawer, or box of papers, and we just couldn't go through it as we wanted. We felt it could be something we could try to go through later. Well later has finally come.

So I've made a couple trips to grab some boxes for Janet to go through (as most of the 'stuff'' is her dad's). Fortunately much of it she has said she could let go of, and throw or give away. She did find this lovely old quilt in a box.

She's pretty certain her mother made it, and wants to keep it. Which is fine with me. She also told me she liked it because it smelled like the old house. I didn't know what to make of that comment until I smelled the blanket, and she was right. I was suddenly transported back to the old house, which for me goes back to the many long hours of cleaning and sorting that I undertook there, but she was clearly transported back to her childhood, and the house that was home for her.

Notice the lovely stitching. Quite a project.

So we will be having lots of 'stuff' that we will be donating, or trying to give away, some of which I will post here.

Here's a list of stuff that you may like
- 1 nice gallon? sized crockpot
- framed watercolor of The House with Seven Gables
- We have a collection of old camera stuff of Merrill's that Janet thinks we might be able to sell. Please let us know if you know of someone who could maybe help us assess what we have.
