We're not getting much help here
Let me tell you what I did today. I packed up many of the housewears from my very first apartment after college. That time in my life when I had a little bit of money and wanted to make my very own place, mine. Lovely curtains, tablecloths, dishes, padded chair seats, throw pillows. All things I really liked and really reminded me of being on my own with my life ahead of me. Many of them are matching coordinated pieces. I still love the patterns. For a brief moment I thought, maybe I could make a dress out of this for DD, or window treatments or even decorate a doll house for her someday.
But then some things from this forum stuck a chord. If they hang around, I'll waste mental energy feeling bad for not getting to them. I want to put them out there for some other person to love and honor by putting up in their house.
This really helped me. We are planning a neighborhood garage sale in a few weeks. I've got 4 bags of table linens, bed linens, curtains, cushions etc and a box of clothes ready to go. It kind of helped me to put things all together. These are all of the peach dishes from college. This is the bathroom set with matching towels (that I really won't use). Here's the curtains, throw pillow, placemats, napkins and tablecloth that all match. I'm trusting the universe to send the right person who will love and honor my stuff as much as I did. I still have a long way to go, but I'm taking baby steps!
