Clutter Rummaged

Charlie took my pile of goodies to the rummage sale site.  These are things I don’t just want to trash.

  • Sewing machine
  • Baskets
  • Lacrosse equipment
  • Picture light
  • Punch cups
  • Batting helmet
  • Juggling sticks
  • 2 glass-front cabinets

I piled them in 2 piles:

Someone might be interested in the lacrosse equipment.
The dining room is clear of extra clutter.

One in the middle of the dining room

I couldn’t find a good place to use any of this stuff.
Now the above pile is gone, too. We’re keeping the chair.

The other on the porch.

We said good-bye to Star Wars Darth Tater Mr. Potato Head.

Over 20 individual items on to new homes. Plus, I’m putting a printed copy in my tax file to use as charitable deductions for 2017.

Do you find it hard to give away things someone made for you?

Welcome to The Glade, where the second generation of renovations has just begun and the mania about our home, music and other passions fill our days and nights. We’re Charlie and Jo in the music world; Mary Jo and Charles to family; and JoJo and Charlie to each other. We are renovating a midcentury house in a Victorian historic district where we want to live there the rest of our lives. It's a 1946 house located in Maryland. We were married in this house. Thus far (pre-blog) we refinished cabinets, added a window seat (still working on the cushion), rearranged a wall in the guest house due to sink/vanity replacement, planted a vegetable garden, and other quick and not-so-quick fixes. So this latest zeal for construction is the result of my having lived here since 1997 and feeling a need to ready the house for the next chapter and beyond.

  1. Good for you, Jo! I have two big suitcases that I almost never use anymore. I decided yesterday that I can let go of the biggest one, even though it’s nicer than the slightly smaller one. I could probably get rid of both, but that is probably a little too drastic for me. Now I just have to actually get it out of the house. At least it’s out of the closet.

    1. Yea, Barbara! Suitcases, yes. I have some in the attic that should go. I just bought Charlie a new one that is internationally carry-on sized since he often has to check his luggage due to its being too big. Jo
