One’s Man Trash…..

P1010001cYears back I heard the saying: “One’s man trash is another man’s treasure.” I thought that to be quite hilarious, not really realizing that trash took on a wide range of interpretation – not just the stuff thrown into the brown bag underneath the kitchen sink.


The other day I was going through and sending some photos to the “trash” file. Photos I had taken of things to sell, things to blog about and other random oddities.P1010002c


Some of the “things” are still around the house, while other items are now residing under other household roofs. Then there are the food pictures – that of course consumed by none other than MOI. (Man!! If I weren’t watching my caloric intake right now, I’d be making up some of those chocolate chip cookies!!)

It is fun to flip through photos and revisit some of my all time favorite collections. No regrets for parting with a few of them – there are tons of treasures to be found out there in this world. After all, too much stuff means more to dust. Right? :)






Yup!

It's fun to look back at the things that once consumed us (or in the case of the food shots, things we once consumed!)
Lovely images, lovely sentiments.

Becky,
Love the idea of revisiting old posts, pics and treasures. The memories can never be sold or taken away. They will always be there for us to take out and dust off. Have a blessed day.

Hi Becky!

I love looking back on things too, it's so much fun to flip through things we haven't seen in awhile and before you know it, that makes hours go by reminiscing :) It's so funny because I was just telling my Mom about your blog (she was asking what blogging is like and who the "ladies" are etc.)and I brought up your blog because I know my Mom would love it as much as me!(although she's a newbie to computers lol ) and 2 minutes later I got an email with your comment on my minis :) I love how that happens :) Hope all is well with you and your family! I love coming here and enjoying all you share sweetie! Hope your weekend is going swell!

Big Hugs, Cyn xo

All the pictures are beautiful and showcase your talent for photography, BUT the one that calls to me the most is that delicious strawberry shortcake. Strawberries should be in season here in a week or two...yum!
