So with a heavy heart I have started to get rid of some stuff, I find this so hard, especially as I think, but what if I need it, what if I never find anything like this again? Then I remember that this is classic hoarder mentality! How do you get rid of it? Especially when the stuff your hoarding isn't just rubbish as in classic hoarder case but great stuff! Again though, is this hoarder mentality!
I know I'm not the only one, I know this is so common amongst us vintage lovers, but really when does it end.
I'm sat at my desk and in my office (home office may I add!) I'm surrounded by things I should use or get rid!
Here are some examples!
This is a fabulous light shade that I should just get on and put up, why haven't I, I don't know, but here it is sat in my office, not usually on the carpet I may add!! In fact I may put this up in my office, how fabulous would that be!
Yes another pink glass light shade, I know! I'm not even going to tell you how long I've had this and not done anything with it, it's shameful, but partly it's cos I don't quite understand how to put up those lights with the hanging chain, I will though, I promise I will!
Ok this is a classic Fiona stupidity, I had 3 of these and they were for a 50's ceiling light fitting I had and yep you guessed it, I broke one, stupid! So now I'm thinking once I get our bedroom sorted these could be light fittings over the bed. But yep you've guessed it, these have been laying around forever!
And a huge box full of knitting patterns! Now don't get me wrong, my mum knits and so I do use these but I don't need the originals, they are just sat in a box, I could easily scan the ones I like and save them that way! I'm very seriously considering doing this as soon as!
Then there are all these knitting books, honestly I don't think I've looked in them for about 15 years, they gotta go! Oh and that's just a fraction of the knitting books, yep I really am a hoarder!
Then the next 2 pictures I didn't even know I had these things, I can't even remember getting them, that's a really bad sign isn't it?!!!!
First up, some fabulous 1940's pattern magazines, I haven't checked the patterns are all there yet but these are definately going up for sale, the style is too early for me and I didn't even know I had them, that's a gal with a problem!
And the last one, I have NO idea where I got these, why I have them, and what the hell? So they are going, if anyone even cares to have them! To be fair in that box is a lot of other good stuff but the newspapers on the top, who knew I had copies of New York Daily News from 1954, I am officially a hoarder!
I know, why do I have these?
So people let me know I'm not the only one who has things they didn't even know they had, PLEASE!!
