Cantrell Portrait Design, Inc.
As I was performing my Monday morning ritual, that of cleaning my house before I go to the office, I couldn't help but notice how many "nic nac's" I was repeatedly picking up to dust under, and around. My home was filled with stupid stuff I've had for years! Everything from ceramic cat statues, (something I am sooo not into these days) to really old "foofoo" things brought from my mother's home after her death. I couldn't help but think of how one's taste in things changes over the years. The things I thought were totally adorable ten years ago.. ok maybe twenty years ago, were creeping me out now. So in keeping with my ritual, I took a couple of boxes, ok, several boxes, and took all of the nonessentials, the silly stuffed cats given to me by friends long ago, the ceramic duck soap despensor and matching dish, not forgetting the many things collected at my moms home and packed them up to be given to charity. (Have you been to a thrift store lately? well it is the stock house for household stuff. ) What was left behind were all of those beautiful photographs of family and dear friends. Isn't it funny that pictures never seem to go out of style. Photographs alone can conjour up memories , and happy times long ago buried in the recesses of one's mind. Talk about the gift that keeps on giving...
What is next to go? How about all of those crazy kitchen appliances I thought I needed! Anyone want a Vegomatic?
