I think I have told you all before...but we have this super duper extremely old ancient farmhouse.
It's so old, they added electric AFTER the fact.
And....apparently they didn't think that electric would catch on. Because some rooms in our house didn't even have an electric outlet.
But I digress.
One room works in my favor though. It's so tiny it could fit a single bed and one skinny chest of drawers. And that's it. It has beautiful, girly ancient old yellow wallpaper that I can't even wash anymore because it will just wash off if I do wash it...or get it wet.
But, it fits a little desk and hides my stacks of books really well.
I have a lot of books. Sometimes I wonder if I have issues.
I haven't been in this room in forever. I drop some stuff and move on. It hides Christmas presents. I can usually find just what I need anytime because I am the only one who goes in there.
But on one snowy Sunday, with my husband off plowing snow and the boys supposedly cleaning their room, I took on the job of cleaning my little room.
The boys entered in awe...checking over all sorts of girl treasures.
Why would Moma want teacups?
Who are the people in the pictures?
Why does Moma have a picture of someone kissing? (Gross!)
Moma has really old, like really old, ugly dolls.
My parents cleaned out their attic about two summers ago and gave me a crate of my "treasures". What do you do with the treasures??? I ended up putting a few up on a bookshelf...
Sadly, I put Strawberry Shortcake with my Cabbage Patch in Storage. For, I guess, my GRANDdaughter to play with one day.
Maybe I really do have issues.
Anyhow, the room is clean. I'll spare you the humiliating details of how much dust I cleaned out of here, or how long it took me, but the end result made me smile....
(PS the pink phone? Okay, I just couldn't put it in storage. It's some plastic thing but I always said 'when I grow up, I'll have a pink phone like in the old movies.' That, obviously, hasn't happened yet, so the plastic one is sitting there. My boys think I may have in fact gone crazy from the winter....)
