We decided to clean up our boxes. You know, those boxes from the basement and the attic or the back in the closet. Those boxes we’ve had around for a long time. They’ve been moved from the basement to the attic. Back to the basement, to the back of the closet, and up again.
Those boxes filled with stuff. Stuff we don’t know what to do with. Stuff we don’t want to get rid of, but nobody really uses anything from them. Those things that bring us memories. Those we kept. But those things that we didn’t really need, those we put out for a new home, for someone to finally use again. And it was fun.
And so did 6 other family friends.
We had so much. We found each other’s treasures.
Oh… and look at these buttons…
They’ve been making them in preparation for the garage sale for weeks. They found the branches, cut them, used a drill, sanded them, one by one. They’ve done so much work. With blisters in their hands, their faces red from hard work many days, but with two happy kids, working together, for their cause.
They were so excited to have this basket filled with these beautiful recycled buttons. I love them all. We have an idea. We’ll share it soon.
