I did give away 2 pair of shoes (which may have (rightly so I'm sure) ended up in the trash in Charlotte), but I don't have pictures of those ready for you yet.
And I do have a tub of clothes that are ready for Planet Clothes (I can't remember if that's the name, but they have them all over the city - they look like large yellow mail boxes for clothes and shoes), so I'm sure that I'm super close to my 34th item. I'm working on the posts, though... sorry!

This happens to be another one of those things that don't belong to me.
Last summer, yes about a year ago, I shared my desire to learn the violin. My sweet friend Grace agreed to help me. We ended up only having 1 or 2 lessons, and then I had to stop with my crazy schedule. Then she moved, the holidays came, she and her husband branched out with a new community group at church, she got pregnant, etc etc - so, we decided that it just wasn't really going to work out. While I am sad to not learn right now, I haven't given up hope - but it was time to return the things she had let me borrow.
I pulled in tonight and Josh came out - so he got to be in the photo!
So in my hope chest, I saw some funny things - notebooks, photos, etc.
Then I found this.
I have NO idea where I got this... or why I have it. But I knew it should leave me.
So, I took it to work to a lady, Valerie, who is putting together some of the decorations and setups for a retirement party in June. There's going to be a beach theme... so - it fits!

I'm sorry I'm behind! :o(
I have some things in mind - and actually have one already done, but I'm waiting to find out of there is a picture to go with my post about it... so really, I'm needing 6 things posted/gotten rid of.
Just to catch you up - and help you see that I haven't forgotten... I'm just behind!

So, YAY. Look what I got rid of this week!
That's right, folks! Two of my three piece bedroom furniture set. It used to be four... the bed was with it - but I got rid of the headboard almost 2 years ago when Alicia and I moved downtown because I just couldn't stand having one anymore.
I've had this furniture for a really long time, so I couldn't see really selling it - not that I have emotional attachments to it... but it's obviously older and not that new fancy stuff that I love at Pottery Barn... so, I took a shot and posted them on craigslist for Raleigh. A sweet girl came and looked and offered to buy 2 of the 3 pieces...
I had planned on using the money from the set to find one dresser I could use for my clothes until I saved enough to get a real, nice, adult set. :) After much consideration, I decide it would be best to keep saving and wait until I buy a home (hopefully next year!) and get furniture to go in that... knowing the size, styles, etc.
So, I kept the one dresser and have been working tonight on rearrangements and cleaning. DUDE... we have TONS of dust in this house!!! We have all hardwood floors, and I am convinced that has a huge part in it. Also, I never dust. So it builds, I suppose. :)
Anyway, great! Two things at once. This is just what I need to get caught up...
stay tuned... as I've been cleaning tonight and re-doing... I'm seeing things that will be a cinch to get rid of... and you might just be someone who wants something!

Christa needed some gear for a fun afternoon downtown, so she stopped by... I gave her a t-shirt (the red one she's wearing), some tennis shoes (I just got a new pair over Christmas), and a bag. (the bag wasn't really for her afternoon of fun, but I was glad to give it! It was in my "need to get rid of tub.")
Happy Fun Afternoon Christa! I love you!

One was the backpack style carrying case that Jasmine (that's her name) stays in.
So obviously, I'm not giving that away... just yet. (Lord, I DO desire to really be able to play that thing well one day!)
Another thing he gave me, however, was my choice of six music books.
"GREAT!," I thought. HUMPH!
What a joke for me to be be the one to choose these books. So now, I'm getting rid.
Alicia is looking thru them to see if she wants any. (She's a fantastic pianist.) And I've left Ben R. a phone message to see if he wants to look thru them. (He's a fantastic pianist and guitarist.)
Neither have committed to taking any of them, so if you have a desire, let me know.

that's good, right? the thing that drove me to do it was because i had to get to my spare tire! :o( someone slashed my front driver's tire so my neighbor Jim changed it for me... but i had to ask him to wait while i moved things to get the spare out. that's awful!
anyway... so while he worked on the spare, i worked on getting rid of things. old posters from teaching; some REALLLLY old candy; shoes; general papers that were just old; etc.
this is just a shot of our outdoor trash can that i used to load my garbage into. see that blue thing in the bottom right corner? it's a boomerang. i'm so random!
