Oh, Sandra! Your home sounds sooooo much like ours!

I just KNOW people do not truly LIVE in all those gorgeous, uncluttered rooms in the shelter magazines.

A lot of our clutter is stuff acquired at yard sales and was intended to be resold...but for some reason, that never happened. Then there's the stuff that was just too good to throw away or, maybe, "we just might need that someday..." Both Tom and I are Yankees (him by birth, me by choice) and "waste not, want not" rules our life.

The table gets cleared off for Thanksgiving and Christmas...I can usually find a chair under a pile of something when someone visits.
