Thursday Thirteen - 262 - 13 Things I Discovered While Cleaning My Apartment

1 – My bedroom floor.

2 – A toony with dog hair clinging to it. Keep in mind that our dog passed away last January. 

3 – A red blouse with the tags still on it. Yay, me! I need a red blouse for work. I guess that's why I bought it.  

4 – A bag with eight envelopes filled with photos of my Toronto visits and my writing retreats. *happy sigh*

5 – A stuffed Soft Kitty Warm Kitty that I got at Fan Expo last August.

6 – My Rockettes Christmas Spectacular mug that I got last November at Radio City Music Hall. Woo hoo!

7 – My Hal-Con program.

8 – A chair.  

9 – My late dad's navy-blue-and-tan puffer vest.

10 -  Six blue stack-able bins to hold various and sundry items. Will come in handy right

11 – Vintage (probably 70's) Batman drinking glass we picked up from a second hand store somewhere. It's a beauty.

12 – Brad's magic wish-granting wand which was a birthday present two celebrations ago at my mom's. Other people may have bought it as a dollar store knock-off lightsabre, but Brad's is definitely a magic wish-granting wand.

13  The hanging stemware rack which will come in handy when I get kitchen shelving going on.

Have you reacquainted yourself with long-lost things when you did a major clean-up? Or are you a purge-and-toss kind of person?

I've moved several times since my divorce. You tend to thin things out that way. I always have stuff that needs sorting though. I think it's the same for most of us. Luckily I have HUGE cupboards in my bedroom so they hide a multitude of sins!

It's amazing what we can find. I know there is a treasure trove in my attic.

Floors are very useful things :)
Red blouse - score! I was looking at my photos the other day and remembered I have a pink jumper that I really like. A sign I need to clean out the closet. Hubby mentioned it last night and I ignored him.

Kinda makes cleaning worthwhile, doesn't it. Packets of photos is nice. I have a framed poem elusively hiding somewhere in my office, I think.

It's amazing what you find when cleaning, isn't it? Or, in my case, when you move. I found several items I knew I had while unpacking after I moved, including a cross-stitch made for a friend that I thought I'd left at some store while searching for a frame. I have also done a lot of purging over the last few years (including both before and after I moved), with multiple trips to Goodwill, and several bags or boxes of books donated to the library.

Since the military moved us every few years, I always took advantage of that and did a major purge before each move. Now hubby just retired and we shall never move again. Wonder what my house will look like in a few years?

I like the magic wish granting wand.

We may come across some lost treasures when we tackle the spare room in our condo. It was supposed to be our office, but it's still the catch-all room. Perhaps later this winter or sometime in the spring we'll start clearing out.
