Not my house. My parent's house.With my dad's passing and my mom moving into a much smaller space - nearly everything had to be given away. She didn't have the energy to organize an estate/garage sale and I live so far away. Everything she wasn't taking with her was given to family members or given away to The Salvation Army.
When I got there, it was basically all gone and the house - nearly empty.This is NOT a pity party. I live too far away to really bring anything home. I know that.
And, my mom did a great job of filtering out what she did not need. I am so proud of her. But the kid in me mourns for what I did not see go. Me, the one with the decorating blog and lover of vintage things. I was able to save some small things and have plans for them.
But, since it's Christmas time, I really wanted to find some old ornaments I'd remembered.
I had some time alone at the house one day.
So I searched. And I found them.
