Lost Treasures

Hard to believe the last time I sat down to write was almost a week ago.  Memorial Day weekend, the kickoff to summer, came and went without much fanfare.  I had huge plans to "take back my life" and get SUPER organized.  Well, it didn't really work out that way.  I went to Palm Beach on Saturday with friends and didn't get home until late-so that day was a wash.  Sunday, I started going through things in my bedroom and even though I threw a bunch away, it made a mess of things and I found so many treasures that I have been holding on to for years...

When I saw this patch that I apparently earned when I was around 8 years old, all I could do was laugh.  The thought of me even being called an athlete is simply amusing.

My latch hook Big Bird pillow.  My brother and I took turns with the hooking gadget and yarn to get this beauty finished.  My Mom made it into a pillow.  Now, how can I get rid of that???

This mini Pac-Man game was such a big thing back in the day.  I have held onto this for so long... and it has sentimental value..if my brother read my blog, he would probably ask for this back!

So, I just got started...I am sure I can find some other cool trinkets to share in the next few weeks. And, just to confirm..I am not a hoarder thank you very much.
