I have a sign that hangs in my dining room that says that.
I know it’s not necessarily just talking about things, but more of a slowing down as a lifestyle change, and I gladly embrace that idea. But still, it got me to thinking the other day. Dangerous, I know. :) One day, if/and/or/when we ever move from this house, I know we would downsize. And that led me to another thought. What pieces of furniture mean the most to me? Which ones would I absolutely want to take with me?
Well…..this is probably number one on the list. Jason has made many things for me (for our home), but this is my absolute favorite. And, big surprise.........it’s red! Not even sure why it's my favorite; it just is. :) It makes me really happy!
Second on my list would be my new Johnston Benchworks furniture, but especially my red-checked couch that I had dreamed about for years!
I’d want to take this with me, but Jason tells me a stove usually stays with the house and that it’s too heavy to move anyway…….but....... we would just have to see about that. :) I do love my stove!
Those are probably my top picks as far as large pieces of furniture, but these two pieces would be runners up. They’re also special because Jason made them both. It would be pretty hard to leave without these too.
Am I the only one that ever thinks about such things? What about you? What would you take with you if you downsized? What are your favorite pieces?
And of course, let me just plug in here and say things are not the most important. Home is where ever my family is........it's just that my brain started wandering........and then wondering........... what things meant the most to me. :) And if I was told, I could only take so many pieces of furniture with me, then just what would I take?
