Clump #103: Take “give-away” items from yesterday’s clump to Goodwill.
A clump like yesterday’s out-of-control cabinet consists of two phases. First, clearing and sorting into keep, throw away, and give-away piles. Then, getting the give-aways out of the house. All the items pictured below are now at the Goodwill, and with any luck, will be of good use to someone else.
Kind of a dreary picture for the last day of my 30-day, 30-clump, 30-post challenge. Mission accomplished! Heartfelt thanks to everyone following along … your support has kept me going. I must commemorate the occasion with some prettier photos.
Today is Small Business Saturday, a day to shop at local, independent businesses. I learned that by patronizing locally owned businesses, “52 percent of what you spend stays right in your community, supporting local organizations and services.”
I became enchanted with this florist shop while walking in Chicago one night (not our local store, but a Chicagoan’s):
The city lights glittered and shone on the containers in the windows.
A car and street lights reflected in one planter was dreamlike.
I was spellbound.
Ah-ha … little elves creating the magic!
Could they please come to my house?
