Sorting Through The Stuff

We're sorting through my Mom's things.  Here's just a sample of things.
These are Ivory handle shoe hooks (Please scroll down) & crochet hooks.  (Sorry for the quality of the photo.  I took it with my cell phone.)

29 Years Ago

What a crazy and discombobulated couple of weeks this has been.
My Mom was admitted to the hospital via the emergency room, then into In-Home-Hospice care for a little over a week.  I stayed with Mom & my sisters almost the entire time.  Thurs., Aug. 12, 2010, she had been called home to the Lord.  The visitation & the funeral was yesterday.

AND.......

                      29 years ago today.........

                                                          I married my best friend & soul-mate.
