I...Love... Beautiful... things...

It was a cold... and rainy day....
I...was off... and running... early...
a Dear... Friend... is moving...
she... I would guess... is in her 80's...
I...have known her...and Loved her... for years...
She... and I..met...
down the rabbit hole... shortly...after I opened...
maybe...15 years ago...
She was a dear...customer... and..now...
a Friend...
: )
She was a Designer...for years...
and has an...Amazing...Eye...
I admire her... so....
Her life...has been an Incredible... Journey...
{Really...}
I...wish... she'd record...her stories.. they... are really... somethin'...}
It was difficult... seeing her...today...
she has let go...of so much... this year...that she adored....
: (
Sometimes... I feel... like I am looking at myself... when we visit...
I know... my day... will come...too...
when I have to...'let go'...
People... like us...
who...have so many... Memories... attached... to our possessions...
we... have a difficult time...
letting go...
We...see... The Journey... and Friends... in each piece...
a Soulful.. thing...
Like...myself...she was never bothered... by Imperfection...
she knew... as do I...
That's... Life....
My hope... is... I can always...keep this...or a...roof... over my head...
until... I go Home... : )
Then.. I told the kids...
Call an Auctioneer...
and pick up...a check....
{Liz...already has asked me... "MOM!!! What am I Gonna Do... When You Die????"}
: )
I have names...on some of the things... for friends... Loved Ones...
the rest...
let it go...
Let...someone else... as crazy... as me... and my...Friend...
Love it...
{and... they know better... than to tell... me... before...that time... I can't keep... my stuff...
I'll Give It All Away...
before... anyone... tells me... I 'Can't ' have my things... treasures... around me...}
Love to ya...

{I brought home... some Beautiful... things... from my Friend... I'm going to sell... for her...
{Beautiful....things... : )
my Friend...is very Blessed... to have Children...and Grandchildren... who are helping her...
above and beyond...
Many... don't have that...
I hear... some very sad stories...}
Then...I went CRAZY... playing...down the rabbit hole... oh my...
the Open House... is gonna be... a...
'Lid...Flipper!!!'
: ) }
I don't know why... the above...song... came to mind...
 maybe...it's because...
some of the things...I brought Home...
had lived here... long...ago...
{old... friends...}
after... all... of the ...years...
I'm...still... in love... with it...
: )
and...
'Beautiful Mess'...
that's an...Everyday... kinda... thing...for me...
love it...
love it...
love...
it... 
Walkin' around... in a haze...I can't think straight... can't concentrate...
Go to work...and I look...tired...
put my shoes... on the wrong feet...
Losin' my mind... I swear... 
It might be the death of me...
but...
I... Don't... Care...
: )
behind... my coffee... cup...
I just .... : )
Spending All...my Time... with this...
Beautiful...Old... Soulful... stuff...
oh my...
There's Nothing...Else... I'd rather...do... : )
Yes...
This...
is... a
'Sweet Addiction'...
: )
{I could... have worse...
 Much...Worse...}
: )

There you go again Barb--wearing that heart of yours on your sleeve-you are a beautiful woman inside and out! What a beautiful gift to bring some items home to the rabbit hole--recycling at a great new level! Bless you for being you!
