I'm at the end of my spring cleaning and have put a good sized dent into the mound of washing waiting to be put through the washing machine.... And all I can say is 'YAHHHHHHOOOOOOOOOOOOO!'.

I think the issue that really started this massive 'Spring Cleaning' mission is the simple fact that I have a tendency to be a hoarder. You see, when I was growing up, we moved at the very least once every year and some of my precious junk would magically disappear. This was compounded by the fact that once we stopped moving, Dad and I started collecting. We didn't really collect anything special, just stuff other people did not want. See, if someone would say, I'm throwing such and such away, one of us would run right over and bring it home. Not that I went over board with hoarding, but I'm putting a stop to it before it becomes a problem. Honestly, I think this trait was passed down to us from my Granny (Dad's Mom) She is a tidy little hoarder as I think hers stems from growing up in Liverpool during WWII.

Anyhow, enough of the explanations and on to the good stuff.... Pictures!

I'm finally able to cutely display the Casein Knitting needles available at LunabudKnits:)

An old horse tooth I found in a barn and then found again in a cute little box(pictured below).

The jeweled frog box.

The first load of stuff that went to Good Will. I'll tell you one thing, there are a lot of expensive clothes and shoes in those 4 bags, but it was like a weight was lifted from my shoulders by donating them to Good Will!

I love to be free of the burden of too much STUFF; it leaves room for the important treasures! Nice work on the spring cleaning!
