home is where...

...your junk is.

Since Sunday we have been purging our house of things we don't need or use. Also known as junk.
Now we have a shed full of junk to sell to other people, but I am still debating whether I actually want to go through the trouble of having a yard sale or just donate everything.
We'll see.

A few of the things I threw out or put in the yard sale pile are:
- unopened Halloween cups, plates, & napkins I purchased on clearance from after Halloween 2007. You know, you never know when you might need to throw a Halloween party.
- two parking permits from high school. I graduated in 2000. Why do I need these in my "keepsake" box?
- two tummy time mats (one barely used and the other unused). We all know they don't need a mat and after the first child you don't stress out about tummy time. Right?

Some things I kept:
-all the love notes and cards Mr.Wonderful and I wrote to one another. You read The Notebook. No?
Well I did.
- a pillow case I cross-stitched back in um, elementary school, that I turned into hoop art. Once I finish my wall o'art I will show it to you. It will hang near our little felt embroidered house pictured above.
- an old sake decanter and matching glasses I purchased from an antique/thrift store. We don't drink sake regularly. I actually bought it because I thought it was a wine decanter. It looks neat and collects dust nicely.

Home is where your heart and your junk is indeed.
Do you get rid of stuff? Sell it, donate it, other?
Do you want to come by my stuff?
