I feel like I’m in a good weather coma today… my brain just wants to take a nap in the sunshine but I have so much to do in this nice weather like clean the upholstery of my husband’s favorite chair so it can dry in the sunshine. Before and after pictures don’t really do it justice because it’s a patterned chair but you are going to have to trust me when I say it looks so so much better. The information on the mix to clean it was on Pinterst. Mix 2 parts peroxide with 1 part Dawn in a squirt bottle and spray it on and wipe it off. I have used this before and I get great results. You wouldn’t believe now yucky the rag I used to wipe it off was after. Yuck!
So I was thinking today while I was cleaning, I am fortunate to have a great support system who often support some of my nutter quirks. They support me probably because I’m not the only nut in our tree. :-)
One of the more odd things about me is my fetish for bags. I mean the reusable bags. I don’t have a fetish for purses because quite frankly, I can’t afford a purse collection. Especially those Coach bags etc… OUCH! Instead I have a fetish for those re-usable handled bags you get at stores to carry your purchases home. You get them a Joanns, Whole foods, Costco, or some little boutiques. Anything practical with a handle makes my heart sing.:-)
And I’m stingy! I don’t want to share them. You rarely find a re-gift in them, although, many of the paper ones would be quit cute dressed up, with something cute inside. But, NO! You’re not getting one. I need them all!
You may be surprised to know I use every one for things like holding ingredient for a project I’m working on or even, yes truly, even for things I need on a camping trip. The waterproof ones would be reserved for camping. I can wash them and safely return then to their home after I use it. When my sister was here she suggested she needed one of the spacious ones to carry some stuff back on the plane and my heart stopped for a brief moment. I mean, she is my sister but… it’s my bag!
It might be a sickness, this fetish, but you have to admit that it is a useful one. Just don’t touch my stash! :-)
What things do you collect? Have a great weekend!
