A little bit of hoarding

I think I've mentioned before, I like to keep things for sentimental reasons.  I was organizing one of my linen closets the other day, and I happened to come across a duvet cover that my Mom and my Auntie had made for me when I was a little girl.

My sister had a matching one.  I called her to ask her if she still had it and she said that she didn't.  I then told her that I still had mine and she replied "But you keep everything."  Not everything....just things that hold dear memories for me.

My sister pointed me in the direction of my mother, she thought that maybe she still had it.  My mom looked everywhere in her house for the cover, but she thinks that she probably got rid of it.  I don't know why nobody asked me if I had wanted it, I would have kept it in a heartbeat.

Anyway, I put the cover on Annika's bed while she was at school one day. 

She came home and asked me why she had "an old blanket" on her bed.  I explained that it was mine when I was a little girl and that her Moogie had helped make it.  That perked her up and she asked if she could keep it on her bed.  It's very cute and brings back good memories for me when I see it.


  1. I love Strawberry Shortcake stuff! Very cute.

  2. I love it too - brings back good memories for me too! There are things I wish I've kept...which I haven't!! :S Glad you...& your girls can enjoy some of the things you grew up with! Enjoy them. :)
