Christmas Decor / Keeper of Memories
My boss Theresa brought in decor for
our window today. Looks so festive.
So, we are getting down to the end of
cleaning out moms house. I was going
through some things I brought to my home
and I found the last three yrs of cards I
painted and sent to her.
I have also brought two more paintings
home. I ended up having 3 - 16x20's and
3 - 8x10's. I did give one of the 16x20's to
I went through a cross stitch craze
years ago. I made this for mom cause
she loved to read. She had it stored
in this bag.
A cup I did. She kept pencils in this in her
Years ago my mom loved to sew.
Matter of fact when I was younger
she made all my clothes. When
Amber was little she made all of
hers. But she also sewed some
really cool crafts. Because she
loved sewing, I made this to hang
in her sewing room.
Not only did I locate the above
items I also found my cap and gown
from high school. HAHA...I wore this
many, many.....yep 41 years ago.
My mom was a very organized
memories. Items had a place and
she could tell you right where it was.
Even being organized it has required
a lot of time going through things.
The house is packed up all but
the office. I will be doing that this
week. Things have gone to GW
and we have kept things. Insurance
is due again and taxes are due in
Feb. Hoping to get my part done
this week. My brother will hire
someone to clean and then do
whatever repairs need doing. Once
I have gotten the office done, I am
done. We have taken way to long
getting this done, mom would be
so disappointed in us but we all
needed time. Like I stated once
before in a blog, every time I think
there can be no more surprises, I
just continue to find more things.
