One drawer, one shelf, one cabinet at a time, we are culling things before our big remodel. The permit process has just begun; actual work will not begin until May; so there's plenty of time to work carefully, with intention, to think through needs and desires. One thing is for sure - we are paring down our kitchen stuff, eliminating all the extra things that we don't use, we don't need, we don't want.
Today's boxed up donation-to-be - a shelf of wine and cordial glasses -
These were so thick with dust, I washed them thoroughly before packing them up.
It is interesting to think about how perspective changes over time. Once, we treasured these glasses. I loved their varied heights and purposes, their varied styles. Some, I am pretty certain, were wedding gifts, and made from beautiful crystal. Now, truly, they are just extra stuff, sitting up and away on a high shelf, virtually ignored.
We are happy to give them away... and thrilled to see an empty shelf in the cabinets!
