Your mom is very special. I do love her energy and agree with using it or give it away.

Your mom is both lovely and wise.

My own dear grandma would say,"Use your nice things,they were made to be enjoyed." and "Don't let your possessions possess you".

I love your Mother’s style! Remember Dead Poets Society “suck the marrow out of life” ........I can’t wait for her to see her great grandchild.....

Wise words from your mom! She reminds me of my mom and the wisdom she passed on to me and that I have tried to pass on to my sons and daughters-in-law and now my grandchildren! ❤️

I had breast cancer 15 years ago. After I was given the “all-clear”, I took out my silver cutlery, good china and embroidered linen, and have been using it every day since then. There is nothing better than sleeping on vintage, French Métis sheets!

I am cracking up reading your post about my daughter, Jennifer. She told me she could only fit a few things in her luggage. I love what she picked as I have similar taste and can't wait to see them. In fact I have an old tractor seat "rusty" in my garden that Corey's mom gave me years ago. When she was a little girl she would ask me "Are we going "teaking" today?

Loved reading this. So many similarities of your life and of my mother and myself growing up, too. We always went to thrift stores, yard sales, antique stores. I grew up with my mom's strong influence & love of the old and ornate, as well. I am now tasked with deciding what to keep of hers and what I must part with. I realize that I can't keep it all. I love that your mom says to use the good silverware and china. I'm going to do that now, too!
