Simplify Repurpopse Upcycle Reuse Things Already in the Home

Simplify, Repurpose, Upcycle, Reuse Things Already in the Home.

Hello, and Welcome to LilacsNDreams everyone! Glad to have you here, and hope your Monday is off to a good start for the early risers too. 

As many know over time I have been downsizing things in our home. Not only to be rid of things not being used, but to help make things easier for when we do move also. Some things I have been selling from my collections, or have been crafting with some pieces I have too. Then there are other things I load up, and drop them off at a place that helps others. At the same time I also give things away to others who might be in need, or are needing some extra things for their homes. I have been waiting on a truck with one couple so that they can get one of my chairs, and a couple of my older end tables too. They both work, have a baby coming, and moved into a home. They could use a few more items. Hate to see things go, but also enjoy helping others who can use them too. 

Letting things go has always been hard for me as it is for many others too. No, I am not a hoarder, but rather a keeper of precious things. Some items I keep thinking I will use it, maybe if I add a little paint I will like it more, I can't think of anything right now, but I am sure I will come up with something later, and etc, and etc. Know what I mean?

I have been working on simplifying things in my life, at home, and downsizing the clutters I have. I enjoy being able to use the things I love, and showing the things I love without all of them being in boxes, or hidden in closets too. Some things I hate to let go, but later I am happy that I have done so too. I am thinking I will wait till I move, but I have a room divider here that is 3 panels that pictures would go into. You know, pictures that are sized close to 8 x 10. It is an oak wood which I like, but I am thinking of making it into something to fit more into the decor of things I have today. Hmmm....I could paint it, add chalkboard where the pictures would go, I could take the panels apart to use them in different places in the home, and I am seeing some possibilities for it. I might have to research this a bit more, and bring it back here to share with ya'll what I have found others doing too. 

I want to thank you all for sharing your time with LilacsNDreams. I appreciate the visits, and I really appreciate your comments that are shared here, or in private emails to me as well. Thanks again, and ya'll have a wonderful weekend! See you again soon.
