Collectibles or Baggage?

     

In the basement in the corner of my mother's house there is a large stack of "stuff".  Boxes with cryptic names on them; "carousel horses", "Depression vases", "Darby's collectibles".  I've mentioned in my blog and on our website that we got rid of our "stuff" when we sold the house and began our new traveling lifestyle.  Well, for the most part we did, but the huge solid oak roll top desk that could become a family heirloom was impossible to let go.  As was my collection of Bohemian cut glass, my grandmother's flow blue platter and some Lenox and Franklin Mint Christmas ornament collections.  Things that our sons should have if they ever owned their own homes where they could store their share of Mom's "stuff".  Now that I'm here under enforced occupation I guess it's time to open those boxes and see just what it was that I thought was absolutely irreplaceable and un-get-rid-of-able.  I think I'll be surprised at what I kept and what I didn't.  I'll get back to you on that....
