The book The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing by Marie Kondo is taking America,perhaps the world, by storm. Two of my girls are reading it and acting upon it, and I did a lot of the same when I moved. Saturday we were down in Meredith's garage and we came upon this baby-basket which was mine. All of my girls stayed in it when brought home from the hospital and some grandchildren did too. Most of today's babies are born are born bigger and outgrow the basket soon. The theme of the book is save what brings you joy. Another book I am reading is that if something is not a definite yes, it is a definite no. I can say this photo brings me joy. The women in the family say this basket is off to the consignment store. Much stuff has gone off to the Good Will, and we were happy people were going to get some good stuff. Although some stuff was very good, they were not definite yeses.
There are some very amusing writings in the book. But to be honest we do not know if they are intentional or not.
