Gone!! but not for long

Well I have been buried in boxes. Packing and packing. We have been here for 17 yrs and sure have accumulated alot. We are hoarders. Does that sound familiar.

Should we keep it?? Or toss it?? Or sell it?? Do the kids want it?? I'm not sure if I will decorate country still or a little bit of country and shabby chic.

I want to buy new for our kitchen, but we have had this beautiful oak antique table and pressed back chairs forever.
I would love to buy an antique havest table and windsor black chairs. I know what I want but finding them, might be challenge.

We are off today with a painter for some quotes, and then off to some furniture stores to look at outfitting our living room. Leather?? cloth??
We now have Kroehler furniture that is in excellent condition, but I have had this for 23 yrs. You know, the kind of furniture that you only use on special occasions. Out tables are all cherry as wel as the china/bookcase/bar unit.

The kids want me to keep it. They say it is us.

Change I guess... is hard. Keep it all I say, it can go in the family room. But DH says white..... It will be dirty in no time. Oh Well!!

Lets still buy new......

Until next time.........

What a better way to give thanks. Our house sold today, and now we can firm up our new home.
Time to get out the boxes.

I am searching back as far as 1910 to Croydon, England. This is where my Dad was born.
His birthdate is July 31, 1910. His mother was Minnie Louise Evans. My dad was born out of wedlock. My eldest sister remembers little except that we come from the Stuarts.
If anyone can help me find out info, please e-mail me. I will keep this confidential. As you see my eldest sister now has demenchia and will soon loose her memory.
Our grandmother came to Canada with her new husband sometime in the 1920's.
I'm not sure if his birth registry would be and Evans or a Stuart.
