Blog Action Day

Thank you.

That about sums it up! Think about it, we have so much stuff, we have created an industry to clean it up and store it all!

Collectively, it is tons, isn’t it? Just think of weighty difference just a few of us can make. We are in this together!

In our family we call it ” the old pile of tin” in honor of Grandpa’s garage. Bits and pieces saved from prior projects or discards were available to fix or renew anything, just add a dollop of imagination, and sometimes a little paint.

I LOVE The Story of Stuff! We emailed it to anyone who asked us where we were registered for our wedding last year. 🙂
