Bye Bye Nightie
Hello, New Year!
Here's wishing that 2017
is better than ever!
While I am not making
any resolutions, I am
having a few vague goals
to live happier and healthier
and more minimalistic.
A person accumulates so much stuff
over the years, and who needs it?
Of course, we'll never know what will be
some top dollar item in 2050 from our childhood
on the next version of Antique Roadshow
but who has the space to store the "what ifs" ??
Yes, I'll keep a few things that I know will
grow .... Boyd Bears, a set of Cooperstown Bears
(Yogi and Boo Boo of course!). I have a signed
lithograph by Susan Koch, a few pieces of jewelry
that may increase, especially the native indian
turquoise pieces, a set of Nancy Drew books, 1959.
But I'm streamlining, downsizing,
or going minimalism - whatever you want to call it.
It gets old having all this 'stuff' around to deal with.
So here's an old nightie -- one photo shoot and
now it's in the trash! No more taking up room in the drawer.
Being single since 2004, I'm not seeing a need for this
any time soon! *giggle*
