I am pleased to announce, the following treasures are now in my possession.
I made a HAUL at (practically) the price of a STEAL.
(What can I say, it pays to make new friends?! ;0 )
...Mmm, I love me some Thrifty Success. :)
Rocking chair, I look forward to sitting in you and loving...

Whoa. I love it.
Inspiration: That stray plate from my bridal shower that I've debated tossing, time and again. Today reminded me why I'm glad I've moved the darn, but pretty, paper plate to CA, back to WA, to our Lynden rental, and now to our Portland home. Someday, when it, too, is yellowed to perfection, I'll ever so tenderly show it to my grandkids and I'll tell them the stories that go with. "Did you know that my mom, your great grandma, dressed up in a wedding dress made of toilet paper and paraded around the house at my bridal shower?!" And that, dear mi maMa, is why I, in this category of life, choose to go against what you attempted to teach me.
Here's to hoping I get one grandkiddo as crazy as myself, who'll actually appreciate it...
Here's to selective pack-ratting!!!Rick and Sue, thank you for being so wonderful. Thank you for taking an hour of your day to give me a house tour, talk about your aunt, share her things with me and tell me the story behind every item I chose. Thank you for making this, my first night without the hubs (who, as of today, began his new permanent placement on graveyard), better than I would have ever guessed it could be. I thought I'd be lonely. Well, I am, but for now, I'm blissfully distracted.
Life is full of little blessings, for that I give thanks.

PS Mom, I'm sorry!
A master minimalist I am not.
...I need a bigger house... :)
