Moving Finds

Moving has been a lot of work but it's also been a lot of fun stumbling upon things I forgot about and unpacking lots of memories. It was a pleasant surprise finding this needlepoint pillow that I had totally forgotten I bought.

I was reminded of how many garden stools I actually have...they will always be a weakness.

Bowties are JCW's garden stools.

We haven't hit the slopes in years...I am not sure if wearing our gear would be the equivalent to sporting the Steve Madden Slinky sandal to a wedding?

Even though we don't have a tape player these bootlegs aren't going anywhere.

Oh my gosh those Steve Madden sandals..awful.

Omg. Dying over the shoes. They were so ugly yet every one of us owned a pair. They were worse then the Steve Madden chunky tall black boots I think.

As much as it is a pain to move, it is always fun discovering lost items!

Amazing old finds. Isn't finding things you haven't seen in awhile the best? I found a large envelope of stuff from an ex boy this past weekend. That was real fun to open in front of Kevin. Haha! He honestly didn't care but it cracked me up!

I can't get over the slinky! Too funny!

I laughed so hard when I saw those sandals! Wow, what a blast from the past. If that pillow needs a new home, just let me know and I can definitely find room for it. ;)

Holy God, the sandals!! Everyone on my cheer leading squad had them and we thought we were so fabulous. Too funny!!

My husband has a double sided cassette case with Grateful Dead tapes. I am sure at this time they wouldn't even work, attic storage summer and winter probably ruined them, but he would never toss them.

If by chance I was ever at your new place...and JCW's shotgun and shell bowtie goes missing...you will know who to accuse.
Good luck in the new home you two!

You can never have too many garden stools!
