OK, I have already admitted to collecting "stuff. I confess that I might be headed toward a house full of newspapers and cats along with other treasured items.
In the meantime they pile up in my garage(my husband got tired of the pile that grew but the day in the laundry room that doubles for craft room, sewing room and storage area for skis, tools ect.
Lovely when your books just keep coming back to you in so many gratifying ways.
And all those wires I am saving? I am sure this summer I will make some garden sculptures and wind chimes. The wire comes in handy for practical purposes too...hanging the humming bird feeder or hanging flower basket or training those vines in my garden.
