I organized different occasion cards and put them in a plastic box and made little cards to separate, Thinking of you, Birthday, Get well, Thank you cards and Sympathy. I should of done this a long time ago, now, I don't have several boxes of cards in different places.

Today while I was stuck in the kitchen I organized about 5 large trays of assorted jewelry making "stuff" from my Mom's house I brought home. I was stuck in the kitchen because the home addition guys were here and one of them was going to climb the antenna tower to get our receiver turned to get reception back for the channel with the football game this evening, and DH was gone and wanted me to be there to work with the guy turning the receiver etc etc. Luckily I didn't have to deal with the TV stuff as DH was home in time for that, but I DID get the beads, wires, fittings condensed and more organized and easier to store.

a quickie organization of my Mom's many boxes of vintage and costume and old family jewelry...I say quickie, because I put the many different boxes in a high shelf in my craft room for someday when I'm more at ease to go through it all. Can't focus on it now with the huge job of getting her house cleaned out and ready for sale.

I used to use china for everyday, but they were the ones that you got in a gas station with a fill up.... I finally gave those to my cousin because they were from her dad's gas station. I had every piece in the set too! I had tons of plates so if they chipped in the dishwasher I just threw it out,,,, I kind of miss that set... not very many ever broke either.

Now the china I got when I got married rarely ever comes out either. I would if I entertained more though, like I use too. I used them all the time. I like using what I have, come what may. So many of our friends have moved from Idaho that I miss all of that. emoticon

Cat brought up an interesting topic that has been discussed in our family the past couple days. China. Do any of you use it for special occasions? I was thinking my DS and DIL might want my Mom's china, but I don't think so now after mentioning it to DS. DIL was visiting family out of state for Thanksgiving, so she has not weighed in on it yet.

I've been given a couple sets by MIL....and I've never used it. It's so pretty (and valuable) that it almost scares me to get it out.

Not sure I can say I organized anything today -- Maybe tomorrow. emoticon

My brother and I did a quick organization of my Mom's outdoor potting area. I quickly separated the throwaway pots from the pottery. He was ready to just throw it all away, so I was glad he didn't get to it before I knew what he'd done.

More organization going through "cleaning out" my Mom's office. Going through them all is very time consuming. I guess I could say I organized her genealogy files (6 big file crates plus additional loose material) in the den to go through tomorrow.

I packed our China cabinet today. His mom's China is so pretty and I'm honored to have it. I also have my mother's china.

I wouldn't paint the antiques. They are always so beautiful left alone.

emoticon No, just no! This paint everything white craze is just a faze and when it is over everyone is going to be paying someone to strip the ugly, peeling, chipping paint off.

That would be a crime to do that to bird's eye maple.... my favorite piece I have is a bird's eye maple ladies desk with burling.... I love it and everyone who sees it has to run their hand over the finish..... so dang pretty!

Lots of stuff she was going to sell on ebay. All documented and vintage or antique.

And DS wants a dresser drawers -- mother's house has 5 antique options -- all really in good shape, good wood...beautiful dresser sets with mirrors, 2 with bedside tables as well. The bird's eye maple would fit his space better, but DIL wants to paint whatever they get white. emoticon To me, painting over beautiful well-maintained fine wood like that is wrong. I told him they need to go to garage sales to find something to paint over. DH says why not let them get one of those and paint it? Again....to me, it just seems disrespectful to do that to a beautiful piece of good furniture.

Still organizing my pantry & fridge. I have been working really hard to stay in the calorie range.

Two desks in one day, oh my!!!

Sarah, you list sounds yummy! The only guy (my neighbor) I used to cook for just got his stomach stapled. Now what? I am trying to come up with something non food related.

Paula, hang in there, it sound so hard keeping all of that straight!

I organized a big file of paperwork concerning my Mom's retirement accounts...and organizing my understanding of what questions to ask when/if my voicemail gets answered. I'm always alert and ready with the questions when I make the call, but then have to leave voicemail, and when the call is returned my mind is occupied with something else and it's hard to remember everything.

Today I finished my grocery list for holiday baking. It's going to be really hard to not eat too much, but we always give certain people a platter of goodies for Thanksgiving and Christmas. Some have already mentioned it and I know they are looking forward to it.

The things on my baking list for Thanksgiving are:
Italian cookies
mint brownies
buckeyes
Amish friendship bread

In the process of trying new clothes (from Mother's closet) on this morning, I organized a stack of "church" jackets that I want to keep, but needs a little work...such as making the sleeves slimmer etc. They're ready to carry upstairs to my sewing room now...and now that BIL and DH have left for a bit, that's what I'm about to do. Hate to go up there while BIL is up there in the guest room.

As well as I could.....Mother's bedroom. Finally finished pulling stuff out of the closets, and got all the little odds and ends off her bed. Made it up with the fancy bedspread, then covered the bedspread with an old sheet so now I can start putting things from her office she wanted to sell on ebay on top of the sheet. Her office is right across the hall from the bedroom so it will be a natural place to move things out to.

Can't say I actually got it completely organized, but took about 15 minutes to organize my closet. It's getting a bit overwhelmed with clothing I'm bringing from my Mother's house.

Took time to organize some of the donations at my Mom's that are ready to be loaded. Also tidied up the surfaces I've been working on and carried out shoeboxes and other scraps and pieces.
