I Collect... Cupboards....

I had intended... to rest...today...
but... I could find...no 'Peace'.... knowing...this house was in such disarray...
 Chaos...
I thought...if...if..I can simply get one room...passable... then...maybe...I could rest...
It took me all day... cleaning... and trying to figure out...how...I could make this room...feel...right... simply...
'Flow'...
{it's a Feng Shui 'thing'....}
I'm not 100% happy with it...but...it 'feels'...much...much...better....
As I sit here... candles lit...sipping..a Cool Refreshing Beverage... at The Old Harvest Table...{only me...and Harold.... {and Ed...} could Love...}
I realize.... I now... have the answer...for folks...who ask..."What do You...Collect?"...
I...Collect...'Cupboards'.... Big...Big...Big....Cupboards....
Oh...My...
: )
Love to ya...

If...I'm up to it...I'm starting on The Big Room... tomorrow... I need to make some headway... before the Holiday Open House...Next Weekend!
Holy...Smokes...
I got all of the Old Weather Vanes...Up... and Everything...that was in Piles... put out... and Placed....
Dad's Old Cupboard... is right at Home...
My Favorite....Corner...
The Old Car Weather Vane... is Up...{reminds me of Dad...} The Fragments...of the Concrete Doves...I got from Gail...
The Bird Cage... from Tom V. The Wonderful...Dog...Oil Painting... I got..at the Estate Sale...where I slept on the Porch...two nights...and...The Wonderful...Old...Old Cupboard...that came from the Elderly Farm Folks...sooooo Many Years ago....The Old...Old...High Chair...both of the Grand Babes...have used... and...the Precious...little Chain and Gear Driven...Grinding Stone...I got...from my Dear...Friend... Lyle....{sure do...miss him... I think of him...every time...my eyes...lay on it...}I could go...on and on...with every....Vintage...Fragment...tucked...in and around...
 This Old Farm Cupboard...
I just counted ...7...Cupboards...in the Dining Room...Most....are nearly 8 feet tall...Two...are 6 and 8 feet wide....and...this room... is...little...to start with.... oh my....
Officially...my First...Christmas Decoration...in The House...for the Season...

Hi Viera...
Thanks..for the comment... : )
I have never thought of this...as a 'hobby'... tho...
It's a Passion!!!
I Do So Love Old Things!!! and..have been drawn to them...since I was a child...
I so...Love...Cleaning the House... it's the only time..anymore...I actually get to 'play'...with my toys...
Guess...that is what makes me so sad...when the house...falls into such Chaos....
Everything...seems...sad...{including...myself..}
At least..I have one room..that is Smiling...: )
Love to ya....
