Stored Up Treasure's In the Window....

      A window full of past treasures, what to do with them.. I like Mama's things but I truly don't need them.  I have so much of my own.. It's covered from top to bottom.

     There are a few things that I'm thinking to keep but all of it no, I can't. Why is it I feel so bad about
getting rid of her things... Mama loved Clowns, so there are quite a bit of little clowns. I considered keeping them but have no clue where I would put them..So I thought maybe someone in the family would want them..

     Now these two dark Green I call them candy keepers,. Though not sure what they were ever used for maybe just decoration.. But I want these I have always admired them for years.. and I'm sure when I wash them up they will be beautiful as can be....

     This will be the other item that I want to keep the honey colored glass, the tall piece.. and the Girl in the back.. It's in cream Green and burgandy colors.. I had a blue one but she got broke during all the moving I was so terribly sad .. but now I can have Mama's..

     I also love these candle sticks she has a few others in clear as well.. there are two and two glass horses those I don't know about yet.. You can see the things are dusty and dirty. I do believe I was the last one to clean all the glass and window and put it back. It's been about a good year..

     This piece is kind of nice as well but I have no place for this... lots of decisions for Mama's things.
But, I suppose I should do the same thing like I have done with the other things.. As everyone to come to the house have a bunch of it together and ask who wants what first then go from there.

    This kitty I cleaned her up and put her by the computer for now with paper and pen because I'm always looking for that.. she will suit the purpose for now..

     Going through paper I found so many little things Mama had saved I believe they were things that came in the mail perhaps..little tablets, cards book markers etc.. she saved it all

     Little Calenders..

     Christmas little papers, are cute .. these I kept.. I too like little things like this.. but I only keep a certain amount in my desk at home not tons of shoes boxes full .. with papers and things like this..

     And of course these are cute with sweet sayings... LOL I don't part of my is just as bad as Mama... I love her dearly and miss her even more. As I pass through her things I have shed many tears thinking and remembering the life we shared... Of course we had arguements but we shared many laughs and good times
shopping in second hand stores Goodwill's,  finding treasures together, going to lunch and dinners.. because she would always say I don't smoke drink etc... and I earned my monies so I'm intitled to it.. Love you Mama and miss you more... Good memeories in my heart even though the rest is a mess... I pray one day the Father above makes it all right.. I think I want it more for her memory than myself...

There are so many things involved and there are so many headaches.. I really need a big miracle to see me through..............

wishing you all a lovely Thursday
with love


  1. Hello my friend, oh, so many things to sort through! It is hard to part with things when you are sentimental and that you are! I think it's a good thing. You will know what to pass on and what to keep.

  2. Hi Janice - I have not been able to leave comments on your blog. I hope this works. I went to Lady Linda's blog and then went to your blog from there. We'll see if this works.

  3. well Gwen it worked humm I wonder whats going on.. I see one comment only..

  4. Hi Janice, I know how hard it is to go through your mother's things; I had to do that, too. If you don't have to hurry for some reason, it is best to go slowly and give it lots of thought.
    Then later, you won't wish you had kept something that you didn't. The best thing is: you will always have those precious memories. All the best, Egretta

  5. I'm new to your blog, and loving it!
    Just wanted you to know I'm praying for that miracle for you. Be at peace my new friend.

  6. Awe thank you Sheri, I so appreciate that.. I surely need it.. thank you for joining me

  7. So many lovely items! The cat is adorable. Take care of yourself

  8. Hi Janice...

    I know what you mean when you say it's hard to let go of your Mama's things.

    When my Mom died, I had every family member pick out whatever they wanted. Then I picked some things out, too.

    I even have some still up in the attic but gave some away to charity. That was making good use of the items----to make someone else happy.

    Clean everything up til it sparkles, and then, after the family picks stuff out, sell some at a gigantic yard sales. Leftovers from that go to charity. How about that? Susan

  9. It's what Im working towards.. the kids came this weekend and took some things.. but there is tons and tons... Attic and basement full as well.. but sidewalk sales going to happen soon.. thanks susan.. hugs
