The Goodies Inside

Here's the scoop on the container...It is packed with a family's life possessions and has been sitting for about 15 one wanted any of it has been waiting all this

I haven't even begun to see everything in there yet. Friday I started with the few boxes at the door and got carried away reading notebooks....Evidently someone in the family was hearing impaired, the Mr. from what I can tell....and the family had saved conversations written in pencil and pen...on composition books, note pads, and even scraps of paper, all packed away in a box. Some of the more important conversations were wrapped carefully in plastic bread bags. These people wasted nothing! That could be a post in itself.

I've got my work cut out for me. As you can see, it's all dusty and in need of much TLC. I am getting a vision, though, of my first open house. I am seeing a very retro 1940's set up. I've already got my friend making aprons for the kitchen section. She got all excited when we started talking about it and threw in the idea of matching hot I'm thinking placemats and curtains.

Tonight I am finishing up the jewelry boxes. I've sorted out what is good and all in one piece and tomorrow I am going to start cleaning it all. There is lots and lots of costume pieces from the 40's - 80's. I can't wait to show you.
