Cleaning Out My Drawers

My ebay auctions are in full swing again! I spent the summer acquiring cool stuff and now it all must go! I've been opening hidy holes and drawers and discovering things I forgot about that I am now wondering why I am still holding onto them. Do you know how cathartic cleaning can be- even to a pack rat like myself? Of course, now I can rationalize getting more stuff (I hear the thrift store calling my name...)!

The set of card catalog drawers pictured above are one of my summer finds. I paid a whole dollar for them at a church sale! Five drawers in a solid oak cabinet. *sigh* It was love at first sight! They now sit on an old cedar table in my studio, looking like I've had them forever. It didn't take long for the clutter to pile up on top of them!

My sister has a huge card catalogue cabinet. She got it for free when they lived in Scotland. In fact she had two and gave one to a Scottish friend rather than move it back. One day I'll have one....maybe....I keep looking....
