On Monday our #1 son and his family came for a long-awaited (yet socially distanced!) visit and we went for a hike through some of the local conservation area. Imagine our surprise when we rounded the corner in the middle of the forest and discovered this...
Rather unexpected for sure! The day was perfect - who ever expected we could be out with no jackets on the 9th of November.
I'm continuing on with the 'Making Space For What Matters' challenge but managed to fall down on the job somewhat by forgetting to take pictures of what's exiting. I did, however, remember to make a list.So....what exited....6 bottles of fragrance oil (not in like with the scents); 2 pillow covers; 1 Deep Heat Patch which had expired in 2010 (2010??? REALLY?????); 5 dried up alcohol swab packets; and 1 artificial rose.
Item count to date 21 (I'm counting the alcohol swabs as 1 item).
- Have a look through the galleries of THIS artist! And THIS one too!!
- THIS is a variation for those of you who make Izzy Dolls. And THESE are a slightly different variation (you'll have to scroll down).
- Some of you might be interested in knowing about THIS (no affiliation but I do admire Sharon's work!).
- Some things just absolutely defy description and some of THESE certainly fit that criteria. The ingenuity of some people is astounding! Be sure to scroll down!
The fixit solutions are absolutely wonderful! Some a little fragile, but most show the right spirit.ReplyDelete
They definitely show a lot of ingenuity!Delete
Good going on your de-clutter......Oh my goodness some of those ideas made me shudder.....wonder if any of them were on the 6 o'clock accident news? lol........ReplyDelete
I thought a few of those 'solutions' were rather ingenious but there were a few that looked a tad dangerous too.Delete
Good job on the decluttering! And what a great collection of links. I love the different embroidery links - and the first two... Whoa! So fascinating what artists come up with using thread and fabric. The last link provided some great entertainment. I certainly laughed through most of them. :)ReplyDelete
Would certainly help if I would remember to take photos of the decluttering efforts though! And yes, it's a source of endless fascination for me to see just what can be done with fabric and threads.Delete
How wonderful you and Jack were able to enjoy special times with your son and his family, hiking and coming across fun things such as those pumpkins. It must have been a beautiful day; one to remember with many a smile.ReplyDelete
It was indeed a perfect day. Just to be able to spend some time with family was a huge blessing and the fact that Mother Nature smiled on us was just the icing on the cake. Still smiling!Delete
Wonderful to have family catch-up time- great for all of you. I like the tailgater wrench and dog necklace.LOLReplyDelete
The first 2 links to textile art are fabulous and Sharon's stitch book also. Making Space is a great idea.
Seeing family was a huge event for all of us. Hopefully it won't be almost a year before we see them again.Delete
Sounds like you are doing very well on the decluttering front! Christine xxReplyDelete
It's an ongoing thing it seems but at least the challenge makes it a little more fun!Delete
I love that make space for what matters challenge Yep I reckon back in our Australia House we will find plenty of things with scary dates on them!ReplyDelete
You've been out of the country for so long I imagine it might be scary for some items. Hopefully you'll be able to return soon.Delete
Glad you had some late beautiful weather like we did. Seems like we were given 1 more chance to get outdoor chores finished.ReplyDelete
We all enjoyed our day and are so grateful it was able to fit in before the cold comes to stay (supposed to happen this weekend).Delete
