Buried Treasure

It’s been said  that one of the secrets of happy homemaking is to reduce the clutter.”If you haven’t used it in six months you don’t need it!”….is an oft-heard expression.

Three years ago it took me 5 months to pack our house for moving – and we weeded out more than we brought!  I’ve been searching for a truly precious book since the move – to no avail.  Then, unexpectedly,  there it was – amongst a toteful of wedding souvenirs – including my hat – from 15 years ago.  No rhyme or reason to why it was there – but buried treasure nonetheless.

With the advent of this new year, I decided to remuster and declutter again – and will keep my prized possessions in labeled boxes.
